5. Bill Paying Agreement/Disclosure

This is your bill paying agreement with Liberty National Bank (LNB). You may use Liberty National Bank bill paying service, ePay, to direct Liberty National Bank to make payments from your designated checking account to the Payees you choose in accordance with this agreement. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are in addition to the Account agreements, disclosures and other documents in effect from time to time governing your Account (the Deposit Account Rules).

"You" or "your" means each person who is authorized to use the service. "Payee" means anyone, including Liberty National Bank, you designate for payment and that LNB accepts as a payee.


If you want to add a new payee, use "Payments/Manage Payees" on the ePay site or speak directly to a service representative. You may add a new fixed payment amount to an existing Payee, only if the Payee is on your authorized list of payees, and by accessing the Service and entering the appropriate information. Most other additions, deletions or changes can be made using the Service or made in writing. Liberty National Bank reserves the right to refuse the designation of a Payee for any reason. Each Payee accepted by Liberty National Bank will be assigned a payee code. You may pay any payee you wish in the United States. LNB is not responsible if a Bill Payment can not be made due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information provided by you regarding a Payee or if you attempt to pay a Payee that is not on your Authorized Payee list.


When you complete your bill paying enrollment form, you will select a USER ID and PIN (Personal Identification Number). The Bank will make every effort to accommodate your request. Each time you access the Service, you will be asked to enter your USER ID AND PIN. Correct responses will give you access to the Service. Incorrect responses will deny access to the Service.


Single Payments

A single payment will be processed on the business day (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays) that you designate as the payment's process date, provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time on that date. The daily cut-off time is currently 3:00 p.m. (CST) A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the following business day. If you designate a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment's process date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated process date.

Recurring Payments

When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon your selected frequency settings for the payment, a process date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated process date is a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays), it is adjusted based upon the following rules:

  • If the recurring payment's "Pay Backward" option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated process date.
  • If the recurring payment's "Pay Backward" option is not selected (or if the "Pay Backward" option is not available), the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date after the calculated process date.
  • Note: If your frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th, or 31st as a particular day of the month for processing and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated process date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated process date.
  • For Single and Recurring Payments, you must allow at least five (5) business days, prior to the due date, for each bill payment to reach the Payee. (For mid west subscribers, allow 7 days and for west coast subscribers, allow 8 days.)
  • Any bill payment can be changed or canceled, provided you access the Bill Pay Service prior to the cut-off time (3:00 p.m. CST) on the business day prior to the business day the bill payment is going to be initiated.

You agree to have available and collected funds on deposit in the account you designate in amounts sufficient to pay for all bill payments requested, as well as, any other payment obligations you have to Liberty National Bank. The Bank reserves the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a bill payment if you fail to comply with this requirement or any other terms of this agreement. If you do not have sufficient funds in the Payment Account and LNB has not exercised its right to reverse or reject a bill payment, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand. You further agree LNB, at its option, may charge any of your accounts with the bank to cover such payment obligations. LNB reserves the right to change the cut-off time. You will receive notice if it changes.

Password, Security and Liability
