Bill Pay

Can I pay bills through online banking?

Yes, Dieterich Bank offers bill pay for our customers with digital banking. 


What is the difference between Processing Date and Arrival Date?

The processing date is the date that your payment will process, or the funds will be taken out of your account. The arrival date is the estimated date that your payment will arrive to your payee. (The arrival date is populated below the processing date.) When you're scheduling payments, make sure your arrival date in bill pay is on or before the due date that appears on your bill.


Is there a way to know how different Processing Dates affect different Arrival Dates before committing to a process date?

Yes, when entering your date, click the calendar icon in the Payment Date box. (This appears to the right of the date.) A calendar will appear. Hover your cursor over the date you plan to process your payment, or debit your account. In the bottom, right-hand corner of the calendar screen, you will see the Deliver By Date, or the estimated date that the payee will receive payment. When you are ready to select a process date, click that date on the calendar. 

Can I see when all of my payments are scheduled to process out of my account?

Yes, the calendar feature shows you this by month. Follow these steps to find the Calendar:

  1. Log in to your Online Banking Account.
  2. Click the "Bill Pay" tab.
  3. Now that you are in Bill Pay, select the "Calendar" tab from the top menu. 
  4. You will now see the current month. The amount that will be deducted from your account will appear as a green button on the date it will debit your account. 
  5. If you click on a green button with a dollar amount on it, you will be able to see the details of that bill. 

Can I see whether or not a check has cleared the bill pay clearing account?

Yes, you can view this in your "History." Follow these steps to access this:

  1. Log in to your Online Banking Account.
  2. Click the "Bill Pay" tab.
  3. Now that you are in Bill Pay, you will see two boxes to the right of your screen. The top is labeled "Pending" and the one below this is labeled "History." 
  4. "History" will show you the payments that have processed in the last 45 days through online banking. 
  5. Click "View More" to the right of the "History" title if you need to see more than 45 days.

Can I transfer funds from my account at Dieterich Bank to my account at another financial institution?

Yes, you can transfer money easily to another financial institution by using our External Transfers capability in Online Banking. The enrollment process can take up to 3 business days for verification, but then you can quickly and easily complete domestic wire transfers to your other accounts.

To enroll in External Transfers:

You will enter the external account nickname, financial institution name, routing number, account number, and type of account for the first external account, then click the Submit button, before entering the next external account information. We may limit you on how many external accounts you are allowed to add. You will find additional information on the Add External Account page to help you locate the routing number and account number for your external account.
  6. External Account(s) Verification: Before you can begin making transfers to or from an external account, the external account(s) you wish to use must be verified to prove that you are authorized to it. Your external account will receive a small ACH credit for an undisclosed amount. You will need to enter the amount of the credit in the External Transfer section of your Online Banking in order to complete the verification process.
  7. Establishing Transfers: After the verification process is complete, you may begin establishing transfers. You can establish one-time transfers, or if you want to set up a recurring transfer, you have a variety of transfer frequencies to choose from. You will be limited on the number of transfers you can establish per day and on the dollar amounts you are allowed to transfer.
If you need assistance in setting this up, please contact Customer Care at (800)699-9766.
