More Convenient Ways to Help You Manage Your Money and Save Time

Bounce Proof Checking - Overdraft Privilege
Free Bill Payment
- Online
Phone Penny® - 24 Hour Bank-by-Phone Teller
ATM/Check Card
Direct Deposit
Automatic Withdrawal
Exchange Your Old Checks

Bounce Proof Checking saves you the inconvenience of bounced checks by giving you overdraft privilege protection. Avoid the embarrassment and bother of dealing with returned checks or rejected ATM transactions or store purchases. You also avoid returned check fees from retail merchants!

There is no application or form to sign. You automatically get Bounce Proof Checking with any HFB checking account.
If you inadvertently spend more money than is available in your account, Bounce Proof Checking will cover the check or withdrawal - up to your overdraft privilege limit:

  • Up to $500 for checking accounts open 6 months or more.
  • Up to $250 for checking accounts open less than 6 months or any student checking account
A standard bank charge will apply, but the item will not be returned or denied. So you enjoy immediate convenience and potential cost savings. If you never overdraw your account, there's never an overdraft privilege charge to you. But you always have Bounce Proof Checking, just in case you need it!

Bill Payment Online
Pay all your bills online with the click of a mouse, from the comfort and privacy of your home or office. Save time by using Online Bill Payment and let us worry about paying your utility bills, mortgage, car loan, or any other payment. Online Bill Payment saves you time by allowing you to schedule recurring payments and saving your payee information. Once you have entered your payees, paying bills will take minutes.

With Direct Deposit or Automatic Mortgage Withdrawal from your checking, you can enjoy all the benefits of this terrific service... free of charge! No more stamps to buy or checks to write. Save money as well as time every month. Get all this convenience, FREE.

If you don't have Direct Deposit or Automatic Mortgage Withdrawal, we can help you get set up quickly and easily. Otherwise, the fee for the Bill Pay service is $3.00 per month, which covers the service and the first ten payments made each month. Additional payments in the same month cost 30 cents each. That's still a great deal... less than the cost of a stamp for all the convenience and security of Online Bill Payment. The first 90 days are without charge then fees will be deducted from your designated checking account.
