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.
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.
If you forgot your password, go to the homepage, click “Forgot Password” link, follow prompts, and reset password. 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.
The cut-off for all bank transactions is 6:00pm CST. That includes Round-the-Clock Bankline and Intercity Online. Any transactions done after 6:00pm 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 6:00pm CST on Friday will not post to the account until accounts are updated on the following Monday evening.
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.
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.
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] Please note that if you activate the bill pay service and do not use it, you will be charged a $4.95 fee.
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.
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.
