Q. What do I need to get started using UMB Online?

You will need an account with United Mississippi Bank. You will also need to fill out a  Consumer Online Banking Form or Business Online Banking Form to receive a User ID and Personal Identification Number (PIN). Remaining requirements include:

  • A personal computer
  • Internet access from an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Internet browser software such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator
  • Browser must be capable of 128 bit encryption (See Below)
  • Browser must have cookies enabled (See Below)
There are basically two types of encryption: 'High' and 'Standard'. The difference between these types of encryption is the strength of capability. A 'High' (128-bit) encryption is exponentially more powerful than a 'Standard' (40 or 56-bit) encryption. 'High' or 128-bit encryption means there are a septillion possible keys that could fit into the lock that holds your account information, but only one that works for each time you bank online. United Mississippi Bank uses the highest level of encryption (128-bit) to ensure your online transmissions are secure. Our Internet banking system does not support use of browsers with 40 or 56-bit encryption.

UMB Online takes full advantage of the security provided by your Web browser and your Web server. Your transactions are encrypted as they travel over the Internet.

Q. Why can’t I transfer funds online between my corporate and personal accounts?

Regulators place a strict burden on banks to limit potential liability with respect to funds being improperly moved from corporate accounts to personal accounts. A check being written from the corporation by an authorized signer, to a specific payee, provides a paper trail that can be used if, at any future date, if there is any question as to why corporate funds were moved to a personal account.

This applies to Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), and partnerships.

However, those customers with Sole Proprietorship will continue to have the ability to transfer funds between their business and personal accounts.

Q. Can I Stop or modify my request to transfer funds?
Yes. At anytime until you get to the Transfer Funds Approval screen, you can modify or cancel your funds transfer request.
Q. Can I schedule recurring or future dated transfers?
Q. Can I tell when a transfer has posted to my account?

If you approve a funds transfer or loan payment, a 'Confirmation Number' will be displayed. You may use this number if you need to refer to the transfer at a later time.

If you make a funds transfer or loan payment using UMB Online Banking before 6:00 PM on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your funds transfer or loan payment. However, if you make a funds transfer or loan payment using Online Banking after 6:00 PM or on a non business day, we will consider that the funds transfer or loan payment was made on the next business day that we are open.

Funds transfers performed before 6:00 PM may be viewed on Online Banking on the following business day. Funds transfers performed after 6:00 PM may be viewed on Online Banking on the second business day.

Q. How does UMB Online Bill Pay service work?

There are two types of payments through UMB Bill Pay. Each of these are processed as follows:

Check Payments

If the vendor you are making a payment to is not setup to receive an electronic payment, a check is issued and sent via US Mail. The system will generate a check number. The checks will clear against your account just as if you had written the check from your own checkbook. There is no validation of available funds prior to the issuance of a UMB Bill Pay check. You will need to make sure funds are available for the check or you may be subject to a nonsufficient funds fee as stated in the Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.

Electronic Payments

These payments are processed at 2:00 A.M. CST and 12:00 Noon CST, on any business day. If funds are available at these processing times, the payment will be electronically transferred from your UMB account through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network. If the funds are not available the payment will not be processed. The system will continue to try to process the electronic payment until it is processed or you cancel the payment.
