Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is there any special software required?
A. No. Just an internet browser that supports 128-bit encryption. The following browsers are all acceptable: Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 or higher (with Secure Sockets Layer support) or Netscape Communicator version 6.2 or higher.

Q. Is Online Banking secure?

A. Yes. Besides using 128-bit encryption, Peoples State Bank’s Online Banking is built with several additional safeguards to ensure your account information remains secure. Should someone attempt to access your account portfolio using an incorrect password more than three times, Peoples State Bank will lock the entire session from use for 30 minutes. If this should happen more than three times, the lockout will become permanent and can only be cleared by a Peoples State Bank employee. Should you forget to logout of Online Banking, your session will automatically be terminated after 15 minutes of no activity.

Q. What if my ACCESS ID and/or PASSWORD don’t seem to work?

A. There are a couple solutions to this problem. The most common issue is the placement of your CAPS LOCK key. Your ACCESS ID and PASSWORD are case sensitive. The second most common issue is a complete lockout of your account. If you weren’t sure of your PASSWORD, and began guessing or didn’t realize that you were entering your PASSWORD in the wrong case, you had only three chances to get it right. As a security feature, we lockout all accounts if an incorrect PASSWORD in entered on the third try. The lockout session will last for 30 minutes.  If you initiate the lockout three times, then it becomes permanent.  Then the only way to reset a lockout is to send us an e-mail using the “contact us” section of this website or calling (361) 798-3237 during regular business hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I get started using Bill Pay?
A. Once enrolled for Peoples State Bank’s internet banking, you will see a button titled “Bill Pay”. Click the button, and you will be given step-by-step instructions for enrolling in either Classic BillPay-e™ or BillPay –e Plus TM.
Q. How soon can I start making payments using Bill Pay?
A. Once you submit the separate online enrollment for Bill Pay, you can begin scheduling payments as soon as your enrollment is processed by the Bank (usually 24 hours). Once processed, you will receive an e-mail stating that you have been approved for Bill Pay.  After that, Bill Pay is free to use as long as you initiate one transaction per month.  A charge will be incurred should no transaction be initiated in the month.  You will find most nationally recognized payees already available for your use. For smaller local payees, you may have to register them first. A new payee usually takes 48 – 72 hours for approval. Once established, however, those particular payees will be available for immediate use on subsequent visits.
Q. How are payments delivered and how can I ensure that my payee receives my payment by the due date?
A. You may schedule payments to be initiated on the day you enter the information, on a future date, or on the same day each month. Although you can enter payment information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, payments can only be initiated on business days. After funds are withdrawn from your designated account, we may remit your payments by electronic funds transfer, or if the payee does not accept electronic payments, by mailing a check drawn on an account we maintain for this purpose, or by some other appropriate means. Because of the time it takes to remit your payment to the payee, they will not receive the payment on the processing date (the date you instruct us to deduct the funds from the account). Therefore, in order to provide sufficient time for payments to be received by your payee, the processing date should be a minimum of five (5) business days before the bill’s actual due date.
Q. Why does it take five business days and sometimes more for payments?
A. Although a number of your payees accept payments electronically, many do not. For those that do not accept electronic payments, we must send a check to that payee via US Mail. Once the payee receives the check, it may take a day or so for the payee to process and post the check to your account. Even for electronic payments, it may take two or three days for your account to be posted. Holidays must also be taken into consideration.
Q. What should I do if a payee has not posted my payment?
A. First, be sure to allow a minimum of five (5) business days for a payee to receive your payment. Contact your payee if your payee does not post your payment within ten (10) business days of the date you requested the payment to be processed by simply calling (866) 243-6577. We will follow up on the payment and get back to you within 24 to 48 hours.
Q. Where can I go for help when using Bill Pay?
A. Just click on the "Live Chat" button. "Live Chat" representatives are available from 6:30 am to 10 pm, Central Time, Monday through Friday.
Q. If I currently have an automatic debit for a bill coming out of my checking account, should I cancel this debit and use Bill Pay?
A. It is recommended that you NOT cancel any auto debit UNLESS Bill Pay has the ability to electronically remit this payment to your payee. To determine if your payee is electronic with Bill Pay, simply look for an asterisk by the payee’s name when you attempt to establish the payee. Payees who often have their own debit program will often not allow 3rd party processors to remit payments to them. Our main concern is that your bill be paid in a timely manner and safely.
