If you would like a written confirmation or confirmation by email of the payment information for any payment that you have scheduled, please call BB&T at 888-BBT-ONLINE (888-228-6654), or send us an email with your request. When you schedule a bill payment, you authorize us to withdraw the amount of your payment from your Account(s).
D. How Bill Payments are Delivered
We may remit your payments by mailing your Payee a paper check, by electronic funds transfer, or by other means. Payees who have a relationship established to receive electronic delivery of payments by us will receive your payment information by a computer link. The Deliver By Date will depend on how the payment is sent. The Deliver By Date for electronic payments is generally two (2) Business Days after the Send On Date. For Payees that are unable to receive electronic payments, we may send payments by a paper draft drawn on your Account. You agree that all paper drafts issued on your authorized instructions will be the same as if actually signed by you.
We send all checks through the United States mail. The Deliver By Date for paper drafts is generally five (5) Business Days after the Send On Date. We are not responsible for postal delays or processing delays by the Payees. Occasionally, a Payee chooses not to participate in the Service, or may be unable to process payments in a timely manner. In such cases, we may decline to make future payments to these Payees.
E. Processing Your Bill Payments
You will be asked to specify the Send On Date. For electronic payments, we will reduce the available balance in your Account on the Send On Date by the amount of the bill payment you have scheduled. For electronic payments, the Withdrawal Date will be 2 business days after the Send On Date you specified. For bill payments in the form of paper drafts, the Withdrawal Date will be the date on which the paper draft is presented for payment against the Account. If the Send On Date for a non-Repeating Payment falls on a weekend or a Federal Reserve Holiday, your payment will be processed on the next Business Day. Although you may schedule bill payments by using the Service 24-hours a day, seven (7) days a week, payments will be withdrawn from your Account only on Business Days, subject to system availability. We may refuse to process your payment if sufficient funds, including funds available under any overdraft plan, are not available in your Account(s).
F. Same Day Bill Payments
You may schedule a Send On Date for a bill payment for the same day that you schedule the payment if we receive your instructions before 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, USA, on a Business Day.
G. Future Bill Payments
You may schedule a payment for a future Business Day up to one year in advance.
H. Repeating Bill Payments
You may schedule payments for a fixed amount for delivery on or about the same date every month (a "Repeating Payment"). The Deliver By Date for a Repeating Payment is calculated for each payment based on the Send On Date you enter and the form of payment required for that particular Payee. If the Deliver By Date does not exist in a certain month, the Deliver By Date will be the last Business Day of the month and the Send On Date will be adjusted to allow for the appropriate delivery time for that particular Payee. For example, if the Deliver By Date is for the 30th of each month, the Deliver By Date for the month of February will be the last business day in February and the Send On Date for an electronic Payee will generally be two Business Days prior. If the Send On Date falls on a day other than a Business Day in any month, the Send On Date will be the previous Business Day. If the calculated Deliver By Date falls on a day other than a Business Day in any month, the Deliver By Date will be the previous Business Day and the Send On Date will be adjusted to allow for the appropriate delivery time for that particular Payee. For example, you set up a monthly Repeating Payment to an electronic Payee with a Send On Date of the fifth (5th) of the month. Since this is an electronic payee, the Deliver By Date is calculated to be the seventh (7th) of each month. If August 5th falls on a Saturday, then August 7th will fall on a Monday and the Send On Date for August will be adjusted to two Business Days prior, or Thursday, August 3rd, to allow the appropriate delivery time for the electronic Payee to receive the payment by the Deliver By Date. Similarly, if the Send On Date of August 5th falls on a Friday, then the corresponding Deliver By Date will fall on Sunday, August 7th. The Deliver By Date will be adjusted to the previous Business Day, or August 5th, and the Send On Date will be two Business Days prior, or August 3rd.
I. Guarantee for Bill Payments
BB&T will reimburse you for any late payment fees or penalties you are charged, up to a maximum of $50.00 per scheduled payment, as a result of our failure to deliver a payment made to a business by the Deliver By Date if you meet each of the following conditions:
You must properly schedule the Send On Date to include adequate time for your payment to be processed and delivered on or before the date the payment is due to the Payee. This means that you must schedule your payments before 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, USA, on a Business Day at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date the payment is due to the Payee. Mortgage payments differ from other Repeating Payments in the following manner: If your mortgage payment is due on the first of each month with a 15-day grace period, then you must schedule the Send On Date for your mortgage payment on or before the third (3rd) calendar day of each month, or the payment guarantee will not apply.
- You must provide us with the correct Payee name, address, due date, account information, and the correct payment amount.
- Your Account(s), including any overdraft plan, must contain sufficient funds to complete the payment or transfer on the Withdrawal Date.
- The payment must be made to a business.
- The late payment fee or penalty, or the method of calculation, must be published by the Payee prior to the date the payment is due to the Payee.
- Your PC hardware, software, telephone line, and Internet Service Provider, if applicable, must be functioning properly.
- You must provide us with a copy of the statement identifying the late fee.
- We are not responsible for failure to deliver any payment that we have reserved the right to refuse to process as provided in this Agreement.
- If you schedule a future-dated or recurring transfer to occur on a day of the month that does not exist (e.g, the 31st of the month), the transfer request will be submitted on the last Business Day of the month and will be credited to your account on the third Business Day after the transfer request is submitted.
J. Stopping or Modifying Bill Payments
You may use your PC to electronically change both the payment amount and the Send On Date of any scheduled Payment at any time prior to 7:00 p.m., Eastern Time, USA, on the Send On Date. You may also delete any payment at any time prior to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, USA, on the Send On Date. You may also stop any payment by calling 888-BBT-ONLINE (888-228-6654), or by writing to BB&T OnLine Banking Support, 2586 James B White HWY North, Whiteville, NC 28472, in time for us to receive your request three (3) or more Business Days before the Send On Date. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and send it to us within 14 days after you call. Stop payment fees may apply.
K. Liability for Failure to Stop Payment (Applicable for Consumers Only)
If you order us to stop one of these Repeating Payments three (3) Business Days or more before the Send On Date, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
L. Reviewing Payments and Payment InformationFor customers using the Personal Financial Management Software, Payment Information and records of past and future scheduled payments are stored on your PC. The number of records that can be stored depends on the amount of your PC's memory. For BB&T OnLine users, Payment Information and records of past and future scheduled payments are stored on the BB&T computer. Refer to Online Help for additional information about retrieving your payment history.
M. Incomplete PaymentsIf we remit your payment to a Payee by mailing your Payee a check, and the check has not been presented for payment, you may contact BB&T if you require assistance in researching your payment by calling 888-BBT-ONLINE (888-228-6654), or by writing to BB&T OnLine Banking Support, 2586 James B White HWY North, Whiteville, NC 28472.

Within the Service, you may separately enroll to transfer funds between your BB&T personal checking and savings accounts and your Outside Accounts. Business Accounts are not eligible for the Outside Transfer Service. Enrollment of Outside Accounts is subject to our approval, which may be withheld in our sole discretion. Once an Outside Account is enrolled, you may request us to transfer funds between that Outside Account and your BB&T Accounts ("Outside Transfers").
You must be the sole owner, or a joint owner, of the BB&T Account and the Outside Account. You will be notified if we are unable to verify your ownership of an Account. We may require additional verification of your ownership of any Outside Account at any time before or after enrollment, and before or after allowing any transfer activity with respect to that account ("Additional Verification"). By enrolling an Outside Account, you authorize the account-holding institution to disclose to us any information that we request about you or the Outside Account and agree to cooperate in Additional Verification, including promptly providing any identification and/or other account documentation that we may request.
B. Types of Transfers
An Inbound Transfer moves funds into a BB&T Account from an Outside Account. An Outbound Transfer moves funds from a BB&T Account to an Outside Account. For each Inbound and Outbound Transfer, you may elect one of the following options:
- Three-Business-Day Transfers: If your transfer request is submitted prior to the cut-off time, funds will be debited the Business Day after you submit the transfer request, and will be credited on the third Business Day after you submit the transfer request. Three-Business-Day Transfers are available to all users of the Outside Transfer Service.

Next-Day Transfers are not available for future-dated or recurring transfers.

D. Future-Dated and Recurring Transfers
- You may schedule both Inbound and Outbound Transfers to occur on a future Business Day or on a recurring basis up to one year in advance. The recurring transfer feature may be used when the same amount is transferred at regular intervals. For example, a $100 transfer from your BB&T Account to an Outside Account may be set up to occur every two weeks.
- Your future-dated or recurring transfer requests are submitted on the day on which they are scheduled or the first Business Day after they are scheduled if that day is not a Business Day. Funds will then be debited on the first Business Day after the transfer request is submitted, and will be credited on the third Business Day after the transfer request is submitted. For example, if a recurring transfer request is scheduled to occur on the first day of each month, and the first of the month falls on a Saturday, the transfer request will be submitted on the first Business Day in the month, or Monday the third. Funds will then be debited on the fourth and credited on the sixth.

E. Transfer Status
You may check the status of any transfer by going to the Transfers tab in the Service. Transfers are "Pending" from the time you request the funds transfer until the transfer is released for processing. A transfer remains "In Process" until the funds have been transferred, at which time the status will change to "Complete". Three-Business-Day Transfers typically remain "In Process" until the close of the third Business Day after the transfer is submitted. Next-Day Transfers may remain "In Process" until the close of the next Business Day after the transfer is submitted.
F. Canceling a Transfer
Transfers that are in Pending Status can be canceled within the Service. However, if the transfer status is In Process or Completed, you can no longer cancel it.

If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you or otherwise made available to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.
If a good reason, such as a long trip or a hospital stay, kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
B. Bank Liability for Transfers
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your Account on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. This liability is in addition to the payment guarantee for bill payments. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
- If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Account to make the transfer or payment.
- If the transfer or payment would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line.
- If the funds in your Account are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting such transfer.
- If the Service, your PC, or modem is not working properly and you know about the malfunction when you started the transfer or payment.
- If a Payee mishandles or causes delays in handling payments sent by us.
- You have not provided us with the correct Payee name, address, account information, or payment amount.
- If circumstances beyond our control prevent the proper completion of the transaction despite reasonable precautions by us to avoid these circumstances. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, fire, flood, delay in U.S. Mail, interruption in your electrical power or telephone, the disconnecting of your telephone line by your local telephone company or from deficiencies in your line quality, or any defect or malfunction of your PC, operating software, modem, or telephone line.
- If you have not properly followed the instructions for using the Service or the Personal Financial Management Software.
- If the account holding institution fails to timely credit an Outbound Transfer to your Outside Account for reasons beyond our control.
- If we have the right to refuse to process a payment or transfer as provided in this Agreement.
