  • Why did my bill payment get paid with a check instead of electronically?
    During the conversion to our new online bill payment system, if any of the information was changed, that may have caused a paper check to be issued. Resolve this by making sure the biller information is up to date in online banking.

    Yes, you will be able to view the check image in your Account History in online banking and our mobile app.
