Intercity Online

What browser do I need to use Intercity Online?
For best viewing of Intercity Online, you will need to be using Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, with the resolution set at 1024 x 768. To check to see if your browser meets this requirement, click on HELP at the top of your browser and then click on “About” Internet Explorer.
Can I be assured this is secure?
The server that stores your Intercity Online account information uses Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL). This security encrypts the data sent, making it difficult to see your information. In other words, your information is sent in a scrambled format. To ensure that the information is being sent from a secure server, the address will start with “https://” rather than “http://” and you will notice that you are receiving the information from an SSL server securely if you see a closed padlock at the bottom of your screen.
What is my Access ID?
As a new user your access ID is your ‘Round-the-Clock Bankline Access ID. When you are prompted to change your Access ID, it can be changed to anything you choose, using at least six (6) letters and/or numbers. The Access ID is case sensitive. If you use letters in your Access ID, you must remember which letters are capitalized and which letters are not capitalized.
What do I do if I forgot my Access ID?
If you don’t know your Access ID or you forgot it, you will need to call 715-359-4231 or email us.
What do I do if I forgot my password?
If you forgot your password, go to the homepage and enter your access ID in the log in box. Next, click “Log in.” Once you are into your account password page, click on the “Forgot Password” link. An automatic email will be generated and sent to you with instructions on how to change your password. Security is so high, even our Personal Bankers do not know what your password is and cannot reset it for you.
What if I enter the wrong Access ID or password?
If you enter the wrong Access ID or password 3 times, your account will be locked and you will have to call us at 715-359-4231 to have it reset.
How long can I be connected without any activity before I am logged out?
After 20 minutes of inactivity, you will be automatically logged out. You will have to log in again in order to access your account.
Once I log in to Intercity Online, what should I do first?
Once you’re logged in to your accounts, there isn’t any right or wrong thing to do first. The “Change Password” button makes it very easy to change your password, and we encourage you to make a habit of changing it often for your own security. Click on the “My Accounts” button to see your accounts listed. You can view each of them in more detail by clicking on the corresponding account number. You will be brought to the “Balances” screen. Just click on the other available buttons to see the different types of information now available to you.
Is there a cut-off time for my items to post to my account?
The cut-off for all bank transactions is 5:30pm CST. That includes ‘Round-the-Clock Bankline and Intercity Online. Any transactions done after 5:30pm CST will be memo-posted to your account immediately. However, they will not post to your account until the next business day. Any business transacted after 5:30pm CST on Friday will not post to the account until accounts are updated on the following Monday evening.
Will my password ever expire?
Yes, your password will expire periodically. When it does expire, the next time that you login the “change password” screen will pop up and you will be forced to change your password using the same criteria you did the first time you set your password.
Can I use the same password again?
No, the system has a memory and you will not be able to use that password again for five changes.
What is MFA?
MFA, or Multifactor Authentication, provides additional protection from identity theft. Prior to accessing your account information, you can verify that you are truly on our website by making sure the secret visual image matches your descriptive phrase. Second, the bank’s security system matches this image with your computer. We want to assist you in making sure that only authorized individuals have access to your accounts. If you access IOL from another computer, you will need to answer challenge questions that only you know the answers to.

Electronic Bill Pay

How are the funds sent?
In most cases when a customer submits a Bill Pay item, the bank creates a paper check, which is subsequently mailed to the company or individual identified in the “Payee Information” section.
Are there any fees or costs associated with Bill Pay?
As a convenience to our customers, Intercity currently offers Bill Pay at no charge. However, you should know that Intercity shall not be liable for any damages that occur because of any failure to make a transaction you request of the bank. [See Disclosures]
Are the funds deducted from my account on the scheduled payment date or when the check clears the bank?
The funds are deducted from your account on the scheduled payment date, i.e., at the time the check is prepared at the bank.
How much time should I allow for funds to reach their destination?
You select the date you want the payment processed. You should allow two additional business days for bank processing beyond the length of time you usually allocate when mailing from your home. We recommend allowing a minimum of 7 to 10 business days for payment processing, but consider this example: The bank requires 1 to 2 business days for internal processing of your request. So, a request made to the bank on Friday after 6:00pm may not be processed until Tuesday morning, i.e., 5 days. Then if it takes 7 days for mail delivery, the total time from the Bill Pay request to delivery is 12 days. Payments are sent through the US Postal Service, so federal holidays may require additional time for delivery.
If I request a check and there are insufficient funds in my account to pay the check, what will happen?
The check will not be prepared, and the bank will be unable to pay your bill as you requested. If funds become available on a later date, a check will be prepared at that time and the bank will put the check in the mail to pay your bill as you requested. Overdraft protection through a savings account does not provide protection for any Bill Pay items.
