c. Citizens Internet Banking -Bill Payment services
If you do not wish to have the Bill Payments feature activated for your access through Citizens Internet Banking Service you must notify us to turn this feature off for your accounts.
For use of Citizens Bill Payment Service you will need to select a checking account that you wish to use for payment purposes. You authorize us to automatically deduct all applicable charges and fees from your designated personal or business checking account. This checking account cannot be one that requires two authorized signatures for transactions. If you close this checking account, your Bill Payment services will end and any unprocessed Bill Payment transactions will be canceled. During your enrollment for Bill Payment you will be assigned a verification password. This Bill Payment verification password will be used only for security purposes, should you forget your password.
You may use Citizens Internet Banking Bill Payment to make current, future and recurring payments from your designated checking account (may be a personal or business checking account). Permitted payments include those to merchants, businesses or individuals in the United States. At this time, however, payments to any governmental unit are not permitted using the Internet.

When you have entered and transmitted a payment instruction, you authorize us or our agent to reduce the balance in your designated personal or business Citizens Bank of Morgantown checking account accordingly. If there are insufficient funds in your designated checking account to make payments you have authorized, we may either refuse to pay the item or we will make the payment and thereby overdraw your checking account. In either event, you are responsible for any non-sufficient funds (NSF) or overdraft charges the Bank may impose, as stated in our Fee Schedule provided to you earlier.
If you wish to stop payment on a scheduled Bill Payment transaction you previously authorized and it is too late for you to cancel or change the payment using the Internet (it is after 5 p.m. Eastern Time the day before the scheduled payment date), please contact Bill Payment Customer Service at 1-304-292-8411.
