5. Transfers

You may transfer funds between your checking, savings and money market accounts via Online Banking. A transfer initiated via Online Banking before 2:00 p.m. (Central time) on a Business Day will be posted to your account the same day. Transfers after 2:00 p.m. (Central time) or on non-Business Days will be posted the next Business Day. You must have sufficient funds or credit in your account from which you have instructed the Bank to make a transfer. All transfers are subject to the withdrawal restrictions and requirements contained in the Truth-in-Savings Disclosures, which you received when you opened your deposit account.

6. Loan Payment Options

You may make payments on your loans with the Bank as follows:

  • "One-Time Payment" means a single payment that you enter each time you want to make a payment. You schedule the date you want the payment made.
  • "Repeating Payment" means payments are sent automatically on an ongoing basis. You set up the transfer rules regarding their frequency, amount and timing.

7. Loan Payment Procedures

You authorize us to follow your payment instructions. For a One-Time Payment, we will deduct your payment from your checking or savings account on the date you schedule the payment to be sent ("Payment Date") or within 2 Business Days thereafter. For a Repeating Payment, we will deduct your payment from your account on the start date ("Start Date") or within 2 Business Days thereafter; we will deduct subsequent payments from your account using the Start Date as a reference point.

We will not be responsible for: (a) your failure to follow payment requirements; (b) your failure to schedule a proper date for payment sufficiently in advance of the date a payment is due; or (c) any other exceptions stated in this Agreement. Upon termination of the Service, you will be responsible for making arrangements to pay any future or repeating payments.

You are responsible for having sufficient funds on deposit to make payments in full on scheduled dates. We reserve the right to refuse to transfer funds if your designated account has insufficient funds or we have other cause deemed by us to be sufficient.

8. Consumer Accounts

Any owner of a joint account may access the account by applying for and using the Internet Banking, and we are not required to provide prior notice to the other owner(s). Accounts (a) which require the signature of more than one individual for transactions, or (b) for which you are only an authorized signer but have no ownership rights, do not qualify for use via the Online Banking. The Bank reserves the right to determine whether or not an account is eligible to be accessed via the Online Banking.

17. Electronic Funds Transfer Errors

In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, contact either State Bank of Chrisman at (217) 269-2339 or write to us at: State Bank of Chrisman, 202 West Madison, Chrisman IL 61924; or Paris First (217) 465-6360 or write to us at: Paris First, 600 E. Jasper St., Paris, IL 61944.

We must hear from you within sixty (60) days after the FIRST statement on which the problem appeared was sent to you. Please tell us your name and account number, describe the error or the transfer about which you are unsure and explain why you believe there is an error, and tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error. If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or questions in writing with ten (10) business days.

State Bank of Chrisman will tell you the result of our investigation within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or questions. If we decide to do so, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation.

If State Bank of Chrisman asks you to state your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

If a notice or error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account was made, the error involves a new account. For errors involving a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign initiated transfer, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

If we decide that there was no error, State Bank of Chrisman will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that were used in our investigation.

18. Customer Liability for Unauthorized Transfers

If you believe your password has been stolen notify either State Bank of Chrisman at once (217) 269-2339 or 202 West Madison, Chrisman IL 61924; Paris First (217) 465-6360 or 600 E. Jasper St., Paris, IL 61944. Telephoning is the best way to limit the amount of loss. If you notify us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone has used your password without your permission.

If you do not notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password and we can prove that some of the loss may have been prevented had we been informed of the loss, you can lose as mush as $500.00.

Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, notify us at once. If you do not notify us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.

19. Email Messages

If you have questions concerning the use of Online Banking, you may send your questions to the Bank and receive answers to your questions through our secure Online Banking email service ("Email"). Email should not be used if you have questions about your accounts, if you discover an account error or if you believe someone else may have access to your password. If you need to contact the Bank immediately because you have questions about your accounts, or about transfers and payments to and from your deposit and credit accounts, please call State Bank of Chrisman immediately at 217-269-2339; or Paris First (217) 465-6360. In addition, you cannot use Email to access the Service, and, therefore, you may not use Email to initiate transfers to or from your deposit or credit accounts, or to access your investment accounts. Under no circumstances will a Bank employee request your username or password via the Internet, Email or by any other means. DO NOT respond to such a request even if the individual claims to represent the Bank and you should not send confidential information via the Internet or Email.
