Internet Banking Questions
Why use Internet Banking?
Internet Banking allows our customers secure access to their accounts anytime of the day, any day of the year. With functions to transfer funds between accounts, view and print statements, download transactions to leading financial management programs and an optional Bill Payment feature the question is why not to use Internet Banking.
What are the system requirements to use Internet Banking?
You will need a connection to the Internet, and a Web Browser with 128-bit SSL encryption which is supported by major Web Browsers such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 (or higher) or Microsoft Explorer version 3.02 (or higher) and can be downloaded from the vendors site. Internet Banking works on any operating system that supports the browsers listed above.
Do I have to apply to use Internet Banking?
Yes, an application is required to sign up for Internet Banking. Once we receive and process the application form we will issue an Internet Banking user ID and PIN (personal identification number). For your protection you will be requested to contact our Internet Baking Customer Service and at this point you will be supplied with your access information and your Internet Banking account will be unlocked.
How do I use Online Banking?
You first need to apply for Internet Banking. Once you have you user ID and PIN (personal identification number) you will be able to access all features you selected in your application. To get familiarized with all Internet Banking Features we recommend our Internet Banking Demo.
I can’t find all my accounts in the Internet Banking Account List?
Only valid accounts listed in your Internet Banking application will be list in the Internet Banking Account List. You must be a sole or joint owner on an account to have it added to your profile, and in case of joint accounts both account holders have to sign the application. If you forgot to add an account on your Internet Banking application you must complete a new application listing all your accounts you want access to.
Can I see my current account information?
We provide you with real-time account transactions and balances. Some delays may occur due to processing or system issues, which we cannot control.
What happens if I open a new account after I am already signed up for Internet Banking or I want to add one of my existing accounts?
New accounts do not automatically appear on Internet Banking, if you like to have the new account or any of your accounts added to your profile, you will need to submit a new application listing all of your accounts you wish to access over the Internet.
Is it possible to change my User ID and PIN?
Yes, you can change you User ID and PIN as often as you want by clicking on the “Management” option under the Home Banking menu and selecting “Change PIN” or Change Personal ID.
Why am I locked out of my account?
To keep the system as secure as possible, any time three consecutive sign-on attempts fail the account will be locked and you will need to contact our Customer Service at (305) 789-8077 to have it unlocked. If you forgot your PIN the Customer Service Representative will be able to assist you with resetting your PIN.
What happens if I forget my PIN?
For security reasons we do not have access to your PIN once it has been changed. If you forget your PIN, you must contact our Customer Service at (305) 789-8077. We will reset your PIN to the initial PIN we provided you with when you first signed up for Internet Banking.
I got an error message. What should I do?
If you get an error message please make a note of the message, the error number and the time, then simply call our Customer Service at (305) 789-8077 and we will be glad to answer your question.
Account Balance Questions
What is Available Balance?
The Available Balance is the account balance you actually have use of. It does not include deposits of checks which have not been finally collected. It does include the days deposits and withdrawls that have been provisionally posted to your account but are subject to final posting at the end of the day processing.
What is Current Balance?
The Current Balance or book balance is the account balance that includes all deposits and withdrawls that the Bank has processed against your account on the prior banking day.
Why is my Available Balance higher than my Current Balance?
Because the Current Balance is the balance in your account at the close of the prior business day, it does not reflect items that are currently in process.
Why is my Current Balance higher than my Available Balance?
The same way Available Balance takes in consideration deposits not finally posted to the account, it also takes in consideration withdraws made against your account. When the current days withdrawls exceed the current days collected deposits your Current Balance will exceed your Available Balance. It is important to remember that the Available Balance is the account balance you have use of.
Check Imaging Questions
How about viewing your checks online?
With our new service of Check Imaging you are now able to view online both front and back images of your cancelled checks and processed deposit slips. Internet Banking provides you with the convenience of printing check and deposit slip images straight from your computer.
How do I view my check images?
Just log on to your Internet Banking account and click on the cancelled check number or processed deposit slip you would like to view and the image of the item will be displayed on the screen.
What if I am not an Internet Banking user?
To become an Internet Banking user, please click on the “Apply for Internet Banking” option or talk to your account officer for more information.
What is Check Imaging?
Check Imaging is the creation of a digital image of both front and back of each check and deposit slip processed into your account. Digital images can be stored and retrieved more efficiently than the original documents.
When your account statement is prepared, our system retrieves your check images and laser prints them on letter size paper. These images are the ones you will receive with your statements.
Will there be a difference in my checking account statement?
No. You will continue to receive your monthly statement containing all of your account activity. Along with your statement, you will receive images of all checks which have cleared through your account during that month.
During the first quarter of 2003, you will still receive the original cancelled checks along with your monthly statement. After that period, your monthly statements will be accompanied only by the images of your checks.
What are the advantages of Check Imaging?
Are images of checks accepted as legal documents?
Yes, Check images are acceptable as legal documents by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and in a court of law.
Can I customize my Check Imaging report?
Yes. Initially this report will contain front images of your processed checks. You can change the number of checks printed per page as well as choose to receive front and back images of each check. Please contact bank officer to customize your Check Imaging report.
How does Check Imaging relate to Internet Banking?
If you are an Internet Banking user, you will be able to view the images (both front and back) of all checks and deposit slips that are posted to your account as soon as they are processed. If you have not yet signed up for Internet Banking, please visit our website at www.bacflorida.com to enroll or contact your bank officer.
Do I need to apply for Check Imaging?
No. Check Imaging will replace receiving individual cancelled checks for all customers beginning April 1, 2003. There is no need to apply for check imaging– this is an automatic service. And best of all, there is no charge for this added convenience.
How can I make sure my imaged copies are legible?
Your imaged copies will be clearer if you use black or blue in. You should not write with red ink since this color does not image well. Our check designs are “image friendly”; however, if you experience any problems, please contact us.
What if I need an original check, is it available?
Yes. The bank will keep your original cancelled checks for 90 days after the statement cycle and destroy them thereafter. You may request an original check by contacting your bank officer. A fee may apply for check retrieval.
Can I choose to continue to receive my cancelled checks?
Yes. You may arrange to continue receiving your cancelled checks by contacting your bank officer. There is a monthly fee for this service.
