INSOUTH Online Internet Banking consists of an online banking web site that provides a complete array of financial services to its customers. INSOUTH Bank allows customers to access their account information.
The INSOUTH Internet Banking system that is accessible by INSOUTH Bank’s customers over the Internet currently consists of:
- Account inquiries, balances, etc.
- Statement inquiries
- Transfer money between accounts
- Secure e-mails to customer service and file transfers
- Transaction download
- View detailed transactions
- Transfer payments to INSOUTH Bank loan accounts
- One time & reoccurring account transfers
- eStatements / eNotices
For customers who select Bill Payment, these additional functions are available:
- Pay anyone! Add any person or company in the United States as a payee, and then make payments to those payees at your convenience. The only payments you can’t make through this service are court-ordered payments and state and federal tax payments.
- Receive and pay e-bills online. Many payees can send you electronic bills (e-bills) through INSOUTH Bill Payment.
- Schedule repeating payments. Automatically make repeating payments, such as your mortgage payment or your rent, at the frequency you choose.
- Make payments on the Internet with a secure and reliable system. INSOUTH Bill Payment uses SSL (secure sockets layer), which ensures that your connections and information are secure from outside inspection. INSOUTH Bill Payment also uses 40-bit or 128-bit encryption (whichever your browser supports) to make your information unreadable as it passes through the Internet.
INSOUTH Online Internet Banking is part of a Network that utilizes a comprehensive security strategy to protect your accounts and transactions conducted over the Internet. In-depth information on many of the techniques and features employed by the system can be viewed and are explained in our INSOUTH Bank Security statement. In addition to our log-in security, we use the SSL (secure socket layer) encryption technology for everything you do in the INSOUTH Bank Internet Banking system. Whenever SSL is securing your communications, the browser will typically indicate the “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.
Security is very important to INSOUTH Bank. When you login to the service for the first time, you will use your account number and your INSIGHT password. You will then be prompted to select a new “Access ID” and “password” that will be used to gain access to your accounts. Additionally, you will select and name a security image. Each time you log-in, you will see your security image and know you are on the authentic bank site.
Your session limit is unlimited, but to help prevent unauthorized access and ensure the security of your accounts, we will end your online session if we have detected no activity for 15 minutes. This is to protect you in case you accidentally leave your computer unattended after you log on. When you return to your computer, you will be prompted to re-enter your password and your session will continue where you left off. Because your password is used to access your accounts, you should treat it as you would any other sensitive personal data. You should carefully select a password that is hard to guess. Keep your password safe. Memorize your password and never tell it to anyone. You may consider changing your password occasionally, such as every 90 days. This can be done at any time, after you are logged in, from the “options” menu.
The INSOUTH Bank Internet Banking service is available to our personal and business account customers at no monthly charge for all account information services, transfers, and Bill-Payment.
You may use INSOUTH Bank Internet Banking to check the balance of your accounts and to transfer funds among your accounts. There are no limits to the number of transfers or bill payments from your Checking Accounts, unless restricted by the terms of the checking account. INSOUTH Bank currently limits the bill-payment service to checking accounts only.
Balances in your accounts may differ from your records due to deposits in progress, outstanding checks or other withdrawals, payments or charges. If you have further questions, contact your INSOUTH Bank Internet Banking Customer Service Department.
When you initiate a request to place a stop payment order through INSOUTH Bank Internet Banking, on a debit item, you must do so at least three banking days prior to the scheduled date of entry.
The system includes a “contact us” button that will provide a means to securely forward your request or comments to us for processing. Generally, requests received from the system will be processed within two business days using procedures that would handle similar requests received by mail or fax. If urgent action is required, we recommend that you contact INSOUTH Bank directly by telephone or in person.
To sign up for INSOUTH Bill Payment, simply select the “Bill Payment” option from INSOUTH Bank’s home banking application. After you enroll, you can start using INSOUTH Bill Payment by following these two simple steps:
- Add a bill. Tell us who you want to pay by going to “Add Bill” Setup and adding a bill. After you add bills to your bills list, you can start making payments. You can also request e-bills from payees that can send electronic bills.
- Make a payment. After adding a bill, you can make a payment to the bill. Go to the “Payments Center” to schedule a single or repeating payment to the payee
INSOUTH Bill Payment lets you make payments and receive and pay bills online through INSOUTH Bank. You can make payments to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the United States , from your mortgage lender to your newspaper carrier. The only payments you cannot make through your bill payment service are court-ordered payments, state and federal tax payments, and international payments.
The date you select will be the date that you want the payee to receive the payment. INSOUTH Bill Payment pre-fills the Payment Date with the earliest possible payment date. INSOUTH Bill Payment determines whether a payment is sent electronically or by check, based on whether the payee accepts electronic payments and other guidelines.
If you schedule a payment for a date that falls on a weekend or holiday, the payment date will be moved to the previous business day. For example, if you schedule a payment date on a Saturday or Sunday, the payment date is moved to the previous Friday.
After a payment is scheduled, it appears as Scheduled on the Payment Center page. After the payment is processed, the status changes to Processed. The payee receives your payment on the payment date you specified and credits your account. Sometimes, however, the payee may take a few days to apply the payment to your account.
The daily limit for the total dollars of payments approved is governed by the system’s available balance in the checking account selected for making the payment. You can withdraw up to the system’s available balance as long as your account shows sufficient funds to cover your payments.
Although payments may be scheduled for the current business day or any date in the future at any time, they will only be processed once a day at our cutoff time, usually around 5:00 PM CT on any business day. Anything scheduled after the cutoff time, will not be sent out until the following business day.
Electronic billing lets you receive electronic bills (e-bills) online through INSOUTH Bill Payment. Some payees are able to send e-bills to their customers. If you add a payee that is e-bill-capable, you have the opportunity to request e-bills from the payee.
Once your request has been authorized, you’ll receive an e-bill from the payee within a month or so, depending on the payee’s billing cycle. You can pay the e-bill directly, and you can also continue to make single payments to the payee whenever you need to.
To stop receiving e-bills from a payee, go to “Manage My Bills”, and then select the payee. Select Click here to stop e-bill service. The payee is notified to stop sending e-bills. However, you may receive an e-bill after canceling e-bill service due to the payee’s billing cycle. Make a payment to the payee from the Payment Center page to cover the e-bill or make the payment by some other means.
If you have questions about an e-bill, please contact the payee directly. All information on the e-bill comes directly from the payee, the same as when they mail you a paper bill. Remember that you control the payment amount when you pay the e-bill.
If an e-bill amount is incorrect, make sure to contact the payee to avoid any late charges. Look on your last bill for the payee’s customer service phone number.

INSOUTH Bank works hard to keep your account and personal information secure. However, as you do business online there are important precautions you can take to help safeguard your personal information:
- If you are a Digital Banking user, check your contact information to ensure it is up to date. This information is vital for receiving important security alerts and notifications about your account. It is also used when verifying changes to your account such as login information updates.
- Keep IDs and passwords confidential.
- Use passwords that include letters and numbers that are not easily discernable (do not use birthdays, child’s name, etc.). Security experts recommend passwords should contain a minimum of 14 characters.
- Change your passwords frequently.
- Use different passwords for each online service. More passwords make it difficult for a thief to hack multiple accounts if one password is stolen.
- Keep your security software up to date which reduces the chance of your personal computer getting compromised.
They may seem like simple things, but these precautions and your vigilance in monitoring your accounts and credit report for fraudulent activity can go a long way in reducing your exposure to online identity theft.

Terms and conditions of this agreement may be amended in whole or part at any time within 30 days written notification prior to the change taking effect. If you do not agree with the change(s), you must notify us in writing prior to the effective date to cancel your access.
