For recurring payments, you are not able to cancel the recurring series; however, you can cancel a single payment. To establish a new payee, you must set it up through online banking. Section 7 below further outlines Honda FCU’s Bill Pay service roles and responsibilities.

  1. General Terms
    a) Changes to Charges, Fees or Other Terms
    For Online Banking and Mobile Banking there are no fees to enroll and use Online Banking or Mobile Banking. We do charge a monthly fee to use internet bill pay if a member does not utilize eDocuments. Once you enroll in online bill pay, you have six months of free usage, and begin paying $6.00 per month in month seven if you do not use eDocuments. With the use of eDocuments, online bill pay is free of charge.

We reserve the right to change the charges, fees or other terms described in this Agreement. When changes are made to any fees, charges, or other material terms we will update this Agreement, and either send a notice to you at the address shown on our records, or send you an electronic mail message (E-mail). The notice will be posted or sent at least thirty (30) days in advance of the effective date of any additional fees for internet transactions, or of any stricter limits on the type, amount or frequency of transactions or any increase in your responsibility for unauthorized transactions, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of the system. If such a change is made, and it can be disclosed without jeopardizing the security of the system, we will provide you with electronic or written notice within (30) days after the change. As always, you may choose to accept or decline changes by continuing or discontinuing the accounts or services to which these changes relate. We also reserve the option, in our business judgment, to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual situations.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days 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. 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 credit your account.

For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that 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.

Preauthorized credits. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, you can call us at 1-800-634-6632 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made. You may also enroll in Online Account Alerts within Online Banking to notify you of deposits to your account.

Right to stop payment on drafts or preauthorized debits and procedure for doing so. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here's how:

If we do not complete a transfer to or from your Honda FCU account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable:

  1. Protecting Your Account
    a) Preventing Misuse of Your Account

    Your role is extremely important in the prevention of any wrongful use of your account. You must promptly examine your statement upon receipt. If you find that your records and ours disagree, you must immediately call Honda FCU at 1-800-634-6632.

Protecting Personal Information. In addition to protecting your account information, you should take precautions to protect your personal identification information, such as your driver’s license, Social Security Number, etc. This information by itself or together with information on your account may allow unauthorized access to your account(s). It is your responsibility to protect personal information with the same level of care that you protect your account information.

Taking Care of Your User ID and Password. The User ID and password that is used to gain access to Online and Mobile Banking should be kept confidential.  For your protection we recommend that you change your password regularly. We recommend that you memorize this password and do not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your User ID, password, account numbers and other account data confidential. If you believe that your password may have been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, notify Honda FCU at once at 1-800-634-6632.

b) Unauthorized Transactions in Your Honda FCU Accounts
Notify us at once if you believe another person has improperly obtained your password. Also notify us if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account. Only reveal your account number to a legitimate entity for a purpose you authorize (such as your insurance company for automatic payments). To notify us, call Honda FCU at 1-800-634-6632, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, 8:00am 8:00pm ET and Wednesday 9:30am 8:00 pm ET or write Honda Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 2290, Torrance, CA 90509-2290.

If your password has been compromised and you tell us within two (2) business days after your learn of the loss or theft, you cannot be liable for more than $50 if someone used your password without your permission to access a Honda FCU deposit account. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, and we could have stopped someone from taking money without your permission had you told us, you could be liable for as much s $500.

Also, if your statement shows withdrawals, transfers or purchases that you did not make or authorize, please notify us at once. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the paper or online statement was sent to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in time, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days. If extenuating circumstances, such as a long trip or hospital stay kept you from telling us, the time periods in this section will be extended.

NEITHER THIS INSTITUTION NOR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS WILL CONTACT YOU VIA TELEPHONE OR EMAIL REQUESTING PERSONAL INFORMATION, YOUR ACCESS ID, OR YOUR PASSCODE. IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY ANYONE REQUESTING THIS INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY at 1-800-634-6632.

c) Security
Encryption – The Service uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology for everything you do while using Online Banking. Your browser automatically activates this technology when it attempts to connect to our Service. The Service requires a browser that supports 128-bit encryption. The Service will warn you if your browser does not meet this requirement.

Whenever SSL is securing your communications, the browser will typically indicate this secure session by changing the appearance of a small icon of a padlock at the bottom of the screen from “open” to “locked”. What this means to you is that your communications are scrambled from your browser to our servers at all times so no unauthorized party can read the information as it is carried over the Internet.

Certificate Authority - The servers hosting the Service have been certified by a Certificate Authority to assure you that you are actually talking to the Service instead of someone pretending to be us. If you are using an older browser, you will see that the Certificate Authorities key may have expired; you will need to update your browser. Instructions for upgrading your browser are located on the Browser SSL Update link, which is located on the Service login page. By clicking on the lock within the Service, you can view the certificate to ensure it’s valid.

d) Additional Security Guidelines:
All Authorized Users should sign-off after every Service session; however, online sessions will automatically end after twenty (20) minutes of inactivity. This is to protect you in case you accidentally leave your computer unattended after you log-in.

The security of public computers (e.g. in a library, or Internet café) cannot be assured; therefore we recommend that you refrain from accessing the Service on a public computer.

Routinely scan your computer, servers, and electronic media using a reliable virus detection product. Undetected or un-repaired viruses may corrupt and destroy your programs, files, and even your hardware. Additionally, you may unintentionally transmit a virus to other computers.

Use a firewall product (hardware and/or software), especially if you have a broadband Internet connection such as DSL or cable modem.

Periodically update your computer operating system and browser for critical security related patches. We recommend use of the most current, fully patched, versions of Internet browsers for accessing the Service.

e) Your Password Responsibilities
When you accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you agree not to give or make available your password or other means to access your account to any unauthorized individuals. You are responsible for all transfers and Bill Payments you authorize using the Service. If you permit other persons to use the Service, your password, or other means to access your account, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize.

If you believe that your password or other means to access your account has been lost or stolen or that someone may attempt to use the Service without your consent or has transferred money without your permission, you must notify us at once by calling 1-800-634-6632 during customer service hours. You can also contact us by sending a secure message through the Service.

IF YOU OR YOUR AUTHORIZED USERS DISCLOSE YOUR PASSCODE TO ANYONE, AND/OR IF YOU ALLOW SOMEONE TO USE YOUR PASSCODE TO ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNTS, YOU ARE AUTHORIZING THEM TO ACT ON YOUR BEHALF AND YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY USE OF THE SERVICE BY THEM (E.G., SUCH AS WHEN YOU PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION TO A JOINT ACCOUNT HOLDER, AN EMPLOYEE, AND/OR AN AGGREGATION SERVICE PROVIDER).

In addition to the security features described above, there may be other security related notices posted on our website or the Service from time-to-time. It is your responsibility to read all security notices.

Access to our Service may be canceled in whole or part without prior notice, for any reason at any time, including due to insufficient funds in one of your accounts or other circumstances that may create an unanticipated liability to us. If your account(s) is closed or restricted for any reason accessibility will automatically terminate.

After termination or suspension of the Service, we may consider reinstatement once sufficient funds are available in your accounts to cover any fees and other pending transfers or debits. In order to request reinstatement of the Service, you may reapply online as long as your account is open and in good standing.

g) Assignment
You may not assign this Agreement to any other party. We may assign this Agreement in our sole discretion. We may also assign or delegate certain of our rights and responsibilities under this Agreement to independent contractors or other third parties.

h) No Waiver
The Credit Union and its Service Providers shall not be deemed to have waived any of our rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by us.

NOR SHALL WE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LATE FEES, DIRECT, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE OR MAINTENANCE OF THE SERVICE.
