Bill Payment Service
The Bill Payment service allows you to schedule bill payments through The First Citizens National Bank Online Banking. You must complete a separate Enrollment Form to subscribe to this service.

A bill payment account (“Bill Payment Account”), separate from any account you hold at the Bank, is established at the Bill Payment provider.
The Bank and its Bill Payment provider reserve the right, at their discretion, to implement security features to reduce the risk of loss. These may include requiring pre-authorized drafts, verifying funds through an ATM network, and separating debits from credits so that payments are not sent until after good funds are received. The Bank and its Bill Payment provider also reserve the right to terminate your use of Bill Payments Services at any time.
We are strongly committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of our customer account information. We use several techniques to help secure our Online Banking Services including the following:
- You can only access The First Citizens National Bank Online Banking with certain browsers that have a high security standard.

- Your account numbers may or may not be displayed in full. Either the last four digits can be viewed or the entire account number may be displayed with Cash Management Online Banking.
- You must have a valid Access (User) ID and Password to log on.
- Additional security questions will be prompted for when using a non-registered computer.
- If no action is taken for 10 minutes, you will be automatically logged off the Online Banking Service.
