Description of Transfers
If you have two Eligible Accounts, you may direct that funds be transferred from one Eligible Account to another.
How Transfers Work
Canceling or Changing a Transfer
Loan Payments are Transfers from an Eligible Deposit Account into an Eligible Loan Account and follow the same rules as Transfers, noted above. Woodforest reserves the right to limit the amount of the funds transfer and the system will enforce such limits, if necessary.
Unless otherwise stated, Transfers are subject to the same terms and conditions outlined in your Account Disclosures and any applicable agreements with Woodforest. Please review the Woodforest National Bank Account Disclosures for additional important information regarding Electronic Funds Transfers.
Description of Stop Payments
At your request and risk, you can submit stop payments for a single check or a range of checks. Online stop payments for ACH transactions, ATM/Debit transactions and electronically-processed bill payments are not allowed. Your online request is the same as giving written permission to order an online stop payment and the stop payment order is effective for 180 days (six months).
How Stop Payments Work
Canceling or Changing a Stop Payment
To cancel or modify a stop payment request you must contact the Bank at 1-877-968-7962 or visit your local branch. You can view Stop Payment history from within Online Services.
You may open and fund new Eligible Accounts if you meet all requirements as determined by the Bank. While you will receive an account number, the new Account may not be available for use until the next Business Day. Account Disclosures will be presented when you establish the new account online and you must agree to these documents to complete the open account process. Additional Account Disclosures will be sent to you via U.S. Mail. You must sign and return the applicable documents or your account may be closed.
Woodforest Debit Card Orders
You can order a new or replacement Woodforest Debit Card through Online Services if you meet all requirements set forth by the Bank. Replacement cards will be sent with a new card number, and the existing card will be closed 14 days after the replacement card is issued. At that time any automatic debit transactions using the closed card number will fail. Contact your billers to update any automatic debit transactions accordingly. Any Woodforest Debit Card you order will be subject to the same agreement in accordance with your applicable Account Disclosures, and may incur applicable fees.
Reporting Lost / Stolen Woodforest Debit Card
If your Woodforest Debit Card is lost or stolen, you must notify the Bank in accordance with the Woodforest Debit Card Agreement. You may notify us by:
Your Woodforest Debit Card will be closed and any automatic debit transaction, that we are not legally required to pay, using the card number will fail. Contact your billers to update any automatic debit transactions accordingly.
Description of Bill Pay
If you have a Bill Pay Eligible Account, a valid U.S. mailing address, and a valid email address on file with Woodforest National Bank, you may use our Bill Pay service. Payments initiated through Bill Pay must be directed only to Payees with a valid U.S. address. Effective June 7, 2012 payments will be limited to $20,000.00 per item and $20,000.00 per day.
When setting up Payees and payments in Bill Pay, you must provide us with information on your Payee accounts. You must ensure this information is, and remains, accurate and complete. We will use this information to facilitate your use of the Bill Pay service, and for accessing Payee websites on your behalf.
If there is a Joint Owner associated with the Bill Pay Eligible Account, you and the Joint Owner consent to permit us to disclose information concerning the Bill Pay Eligible Account payments, completed, pending and scheduled, to other Joint Owners. Joint Owners may use the same Bill Pay Eligible Account for their individual use of Bill Pay. Each Authorized Account Owner has the same right of access to Bill Pay services such as notifying Customer Contact Center of suspected loss or fraud or canceling individual payments, Bill Pay services, etc. Each Authorized Account Owner must individually enroll in Bill Pay and, if so enrolled, will have a separate Payee list and payment history.
How Bill Pay Works:
Payment Authorization and Available Funds
Canceling Payments; Requesting Stop Payments, Refunds, or Reversals
Returned Bill Payments
A Payee, a payment system participant, and/or the United States Postal Service may return payments for various reasons, such as the Payee account number is not valid, the Payee is unable to locate your account, the Payee has changed its address or sold your account, or the Payee account was paid in full. While we may, as a courtesy, attempt to notify you of a returned payment, we are under no obligation to do so. Payments made by check will be returned to your Bill Pay address on file.
Termination of Bill Pay
If you have Bill Pay and do not schedule or process a payment through Bill Pay for any 3-month period, we may, at our sole discretion, terminate your use of Bill Pay without prior notice. You agree that you will only use Bill Pay for the authorized payment of lawful bills and invoices. Please note that the usage of Bill Pay for any unlawful and/or unauthorized purpose, to the extent that Woodforest determines it as such, may result in termination of your access to Bill Pay, in addition to termination of all Woodforest-provided services, at our sole discretion.
You must have at least one Bill Pay Eligible Account to use Bill Pay. If you close your Bill Pay Eligible Account, you must designate a new Account within 30 days or we may terminate Bill Pay services without prior notice. If we terminate your use of Bill Pay services, your online bill payment information will be lost and all pending payments will be cancelled and are your sole responsibility. If you decide to terminate Bill Pay services, all future bill payments at the same time that you cancel Bill Pay will be deleted. You may contact the Bank at 1-877-968-7962 and request cancellation of Bill Pay services, but you may be required to submit this change in writing.
Third-Party Service Providers
We may use unaffiliated third-party service providers to act on our behalf in processing payments you schedule through Bill Pay. Any such service provider is required to implement appropriate measures to protect the privacy and security of your information.
Bill Pay Provisions Control
If this Bill Pay Section conflicts with any other provisions of this Agreement, this Section governs with respect to Bill Pay.
Description of eBills
eBills are a feature of Bill Pay that allows you to receive bills electronically from participating Payees. If a Payee participates in electronic billing, you will be taken through a series of steps to enroll in and set up an eBill. In addition to viewing your bill, you can to set up reminders and automated payments. The following are general requirements for use within Online Services but does not supersede any eBill agreement between you and a Payee.
To receive delivery of your eBills through Bill Pay, you must have a Bill Pay Eligible Account, and be registered with Bill Pay services. You need to ensure that your computer software meets the requirements provided on the Website in order to view, print, and/or save your eBill and legal notices. You may set up reminders to let you know that your current eBill is ready for you to view, save, print, or pay at your convenience.
Payee Login Credentials
In order to facilitate eBill delivery, we may ask you for authentication information, such as any required password provided to you by the Payee or that you created in order to access the Payee website. When you provide this information, you authorize the Bank to use such information and to access the Payee's website to retrieve the account billing information on your behalf, and you appoint us as your agent for this limited purpose. Payees have their own criteria and may exercise their sole discretion in deciding to accept or deny requests to provide eBills. We are not responsible if a Payee denies the request to provide an eBill, or does not provide the necessary data to forward an eBill in a timely manner.
You need to ensure that your contact information is current with Payees at all times, as we are unable to update or change your information, (e.g., name, address, phone number(s) and email address(es)) that you have established with a Payee. You will need to update such information by contacting the Payee directly. Additionally, it is your responsibility to maintain all user names and passwords for the Payee website.

If we decide to do this, we will credit the account in question within 10 Business Days (or 20 Business Days if your account was opened less than 30 days prior to the date of the suspected error) 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. Such crediting is referred to as a provisional credit. You agree and authorize us to make an electronic transfer to your account to make such provisional credit. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 Business Days, we may not provisionally credit the account(s) that was the subject of your complaint.
We will give you the results within three Business Days after completing our investigation. If we find there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. If we provisionally credit your account, we may take back the amount of any credit if we find that an error did not occur. You agree and authorize us to debit your account to take back the amount or claim a refund from you for such amount.
