Debit and ATM Card

{beginAccordion}

How does a MasterCard Debit Card differ from a credit card?

MasterCard Debit Card withdraws money directly from your checking account with no annual fees or finance charges, whereas a credit card is a loan against a pre-determined line of credit. 

How does a MasterCard Debit Card differ from an ATM card?

An ATM card can be used to withdraw money from an ATM or purchase items at a merchant with a PIN pad, whereas a MasterCard Debit Card can be used exactly like an ATM card, but can also be used anywhere credit cards are accepted. In addition, the daily purchase limits are higher with a MasterCard Debit Card.

What are the benefits of using a MasterCard Debit Card?

MasterCard Debit Cards are accepted anywhere credit cards are accepted, including online or placing orders over the phone. There is no need to carry a checkbook or wait for check approval. It is possible to receive cash back at a merchant with a PIN pad. All of your withdrawals and purchases will show up in detail on your bank statement.

What does it cost to have a MasterCard Debit Card?

MasterCard Debit Cards (debit cards) are issued to customers free of charge. While you may incur some fees for using your card at non-Oxford Bank locations, you will not be charged a fee if you use your card at an Oxford Bank ATM location or you use it to purchase goods or services at a merchant location that accepts the card.

Can anyone with an ATM card upgrade to a MasterCard Debit Card?

A MasterCard Debit Card must be associated with a checking account and cannot be issued for savings accounts. A current customer must be in good standing with Oxford Bank in order to upgrade to a MasterCard Debit Card.

How can a MasterCard Debit Card be used?

There are three ways to use a MasterCard Debit Card:

To make purchases anywhere credit cards are accepted, select the "credit" option; sign the receipt just as you would when using a credit card; the amount of the purchase will be deducted automatically from your checking account.

To receive cash back at the time of purchase:

  • Select the "check" option
  • Enter your PIN number
  • Select the amount of cash you would like back

The amount of the purchase AND the amount of the cash back will be deducted automatically from your checking account.

To withdraw cash or make deposits at an ATM, use your MasterCard Debit Card at more than 600,000 ATMs worldwide by entering your PIN; the withdrawal or deposit amount will be deducted or added automatically to your checking account.

Note: There is no ATM service charge to use any Oxford Bank ATM if you are an Oxford Bank customer using an Oxford Bank MasterCard or ATM card.

After I have requested my MasterCard Debit Card, when can I expect to receive it?

MasterCard Debit Card (debit cards) are usually received by customers within 7-10 business days from the date of order.

I just received my MasterCard Debit Card and it says I need to activate it. How do I do this?

For security reasons, we require that you activate your MasterCard Debit Card. Activation requires that you use your card just one time at any ATM or merchant that processes transactions requiring a PIN number. Once you do just one transaction with your PIN, your MasterCard Debit Card can then be used at any merchant location that accepts credit cards. 

Should I sign the back of my MasterCard Debit Card?

Yes. For your protection, never leave the signature panel on the reverse side of your card blank. When a transaction is performed at a merchant location, merchants will compare the signature on the back of the card against the sales receipt. If you neglect to sign your card and you should lose it, someone could find it and sign it themselves, in which case the signature on the receipt would match the signature on the card and the merchant would approve the transaction. Also remember that cards are not valid until they are signed.

I would like to change my Personal Identification Number (PIN) on my ATM or MasterCard Debit Card. What do I need to do?

Visit any of our branch locations to change your PIN number. Once your new PIN number has been selected, you can use it immediately.

What should I do if my ATM or MasterCard Debit Card is not working?

Visit your nearest branch location.

 What should I do if I lose my ATM or MasterCard Debit Card?

Notify us IMMEDIATELY so that we can restrict your card and protect your account. You have the option of visiting your nearest branch location or calling 800-335-1064.

If I notice charges on my account for ATM or MasterCard Debit Card transactions that I do not recall performing, or they are for an amount different than what I authorized, what do I do?

If you notice erroneous charges on your account relating to ATM or MasterCard Debit Card transactions, you must notify us in writing within 60 days from the statement date that the transactions appeared. Upon receipt of written notification, we will promptly investigate the matter. While our investigation could take between 45-90 days to complete, we will ensure that a temporary credit is issued to you within 10 business days while we investigate. 

Can I have more than one ATM or MasterCard Debit Card?

No. For your protection, we will issue you only one ATM or MasterCard Debit Card depending on the type of accounts you have with Oxford Bank. However, if accounts are shared, each customer can have their own ATM or MasterCard Debit Card. If your ATM or MasterCard Debit Card should become damaged, please contact us and we will promptly reissue you a new card.

Are there any withdrawal or purchase limits associated with my ATM or MasterCard Debit Card or ATM card?

Each day, you may withdraw a maximum of $500 cash using your MasterCard Debit Card or $500 per day with your ATM card. Additionally, with your MasterCard Debit Card you can purchase up to $2500 of merchandise at any merchant that accepts MasterCard.

Home Equity Loans

{beginAccordion}

How long does it take to get a home equity loan with Oxford Bank?

Oxford Bank strives to complete the entire home equity loan process as quickly as possible. Generally speaking, it takes approximately ten business days from start to finish. Your experience may vary, depending on the complexity of your loan.

Simply call the Oxford Bank Mortgage Center at 248-969-7229 to get your application started. A knowledgeable loan representative will guide you through the application process and work to get your loan approved and closed as quickly as possible.

How do I calculate the available equity in my home?

Oxford Bank offers home equity loans and lines of credit up to 90% of loan-to-value. To figure out how much equity you have, use the following formula:

Appraised Value $

What is the difference between a fixed rate, fixed term home equity loan and a home equity line-of-credit?

A fixed rate, fixed term home equity loan is a specific dollar amount borrowed for a specific period of time. The borrower cannot add on to the loan and must repay the agreed upon monthly payment until the loan is paid in full. A home equity credit line provides a revolving source of funds for all your borrowing needs.

iPay Online Bill Pay

{beginAccordion}

What is iPay?

IPay Online Bill Pay is a service that allows you to pay virtually anyone or any company through your online banking account. You determine who you want to pay, when you want to make the payment and which account you want the payment to come from. It's safe, secure and easy to use. 

Who can I pay with iPay?

You can pay virtually any business or individual with a mailing address within the United States and Puerto Rico. For example, you can pay utilities, cable bills or credit cards, or individuals such as a landlord, babysitter or relative.

It’s easy to enroll in iPay Online Bill Pay. Just log in to your account and click the "Bill Pay" link to access the short enrollment form. 

How do I start using iPay?

The first step is to add a payee, the person or company you wish to pay. Here’s how easy it is:

  1. Log in to your account and click the "Bill Pay" link.
  2. Click the "Add a Payee" button on your home page dashboard.
  3. Enter the requested information. Typically this information can be found on your latest bill statement.

How do I make payments with iPay?

  1. Find your payee on the payments dashboard.
  2. Enter the payment amount and date, then submit. 

How are online payments delivered?

Payments are sent one of two ways — electronically or by paper checks. The majority of payments are delivered electronically. Your payment information, such as your account number, is sent via secure transmission. All other payments are made by paper checks that are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service.

Is iPay secure?

Paying bills online is one of the safest ways to pay your bills. IPay helps guard against identity theft from lost or stolen checkbooks, bills and statements. It also increases your privacy because only you can access your account information, account numbers and payment history. As a result, you maintain tighter control of your account with real-time access to your payments activity. 

How long does it take before my payment is received?

Generally, your payment is received within 2 to 7 days, depending on whether or not it is sent electronically or via paper check.

Most scheduled payments are sent electronically and funds are withdrawn from your account on the payment date.

What are the primary benefits of iPay?

Here's a quick list of the many ways you can benefit from using iPay.

  1. Save time. With iPay, you can receive and pay your bills online, all in one place. That means no more visiting multiple websites to pay bills or trips to the post office to mail checks. In addition, smart features such as recurring payments allow you to automate regular bill payments.
  2. Save money. Paying bills online saves on postage, envelopes, late fees and checks. If you pay just 10 bills per month, you can easily save over $110.00* per year.
  3. Stay organized. Your payment history is stored in your online account, so you won't have to sort through paper receipts or visit multiple websites to access past transactions.
  4. Gain peace of mind. Paying bills electronically means no risk of mailed checks getting lost or stolen. Plus, you can stop worrying about missing a bill payment when you set up reminders and automated recurring payments.
  5. Help the environment by saving paper. With iPay, there are no checks to write or envelopes to mail. That's good news for you and the environment.

*Savings are approximate and based upon the average annual cost of stamps, envelopes and checks required for paying 10 bills per month.

What is eBill?

eBill is a feature that allows you to receive and pay electronic summary versions of paper bills directly from your iPay account.

How do eBills work?

eBills are delivered directly to your iPay account. Once you set up an individual eBill for a company you do business with, an eBill comes directly from that payee to your account. Examples of businesses that offer eBills are cable service providers, phone service providers, utility providers and credit card companies.

Will I still receive paper statements when I have eBill?

You will also continue to receive paper bill statements unless you contact the payee to stop sending those statements. 

How will I know if eBill is available for a payee?

If a payee offers eBill, there will be a “Set up eBill” link next to their listing on your iPay dashboard. 

What are the primary benefits of eBill?

With eBill, everything you need is in one convenient location. Using eBill allows you to streamline your bill pay routine and have online access to your bills. That means you won't have to keep track of paper bills. In addition, you can view past bill summaries at a glance.

What information is included in an eBill?

Balance due, due date and minimum payment amount are included in your eBill. If you need additional details, there will be a link that lets you log in to your account on your payee's website, or you can check your paper statement.

How do I pay an eBill?

To pay an eBill, simply choose the account you want to pay from, enter the amount you want to pay and schedule when you want the payment delivered. 

How do I know when I have received an eBill?

You can sign up to receive an electronic notice to alert you when an eBill has been delivered to your account. You can receive these notices in the form of emails or text alerts to provide an extra reminder when a payment is due.

{endAccordion}

Mortgages

{beginAccordion}

I want to buy my first home, but I am unsure what to do first?

There are several steps you should take:

Look at your own financial situation. Establish a good credit history by paying your bills by the due dates - including your rent. Use credit sparingly and do not charge credit cards up to the limit. Try to save money for a down payment and closing costs. Oxford Bank has several first-time home buyer programs that need very little money down; however, you should always have some cash in reserve to handle emergencies, moving expenses, turning on utilities, etc.

Decide how large of a house payment you feel comfortable paying each month. This generally gives a good starting point in pre-approving you for a mortgage.

Make an appointment to visit an Oxford Bank loan representative for pre-approval consideration. We will be glad to analyze your individual financial position, assist in determining your maximum mortgage, and put you in the right direction for home ownership.

How long do I have to be on my job?

There is no mandatory time to be on a job. However, you must show income stability to handle the future mortgage payments. In underwriting a mortgage, emphasis is given to the last two years with no gaps in employment over 30 days. If you are self-employed, two year's tax returns should be available.

What is a sales contract?

This is a legally-binding agreement between buyer and seller which, when accepted by all parties, confirms the purchase price of the property. Usually the buyer places a small amount of money in deposit as good faith (called "earnest money"). Do not sign any sales contract unless you have reviewed it carefully and perhaps even had it reviewed by an attorney. A contract is often contingent upon many things, such as mortgage loan approval, inspections of well and/or septic systems, satisfactory building inspection and termite inspection. You should make sure your rights are protected.

Do I really need a building inspection?

If you are buying a new home, you will have warranties on the roof, furnace, air conditioning, etc., and your own inspection of the home may be sufficient. However, the older the home, the more that can be wrong with it. Care should be taken to inspect the following:

  • The foundation for cracks and leaks
  • The roof should have 3 to 5 years of remaining life
  • The plumbing should meet local code with no leaks
  • The heat ex-changer in a gas furnace should not be cracked
  • The electrical service should be adequate

What does the term "fixed-rate" versus "adjustable rate" mean?

Fixed-rate mortgage has the same total principal and interest payment (P&I) every month. In addition to that amount, a monthly installment of taxes, insurance, and private mortgage insurance will be added to create the total monthly mortgage payment. An adjustable-rate mortgage allows the interest rate charged to go up or down depending on market conditions. There are usually caps placed on the rates to provide the borrower protection against the rate going up too high. Because of the interest rate changes, the principal and interest amount can change at certain intervals set established in the mortgage. These loans tend to have a higher rate of risk. You have the chance that the payment may go down, but you have the same chance the payment may increase.

With a fixed rate loan, can my payment ever change?

Yes, while the principal and interest stay the same, your taxes and insurance paid monthly will change according to tax assessments and increases in homeowner's insurance costs.

As long as you maintain your account in good standing (defined as making regular deposits and bringing your account to a positive balance at least once every 30 days), Oxford Bank may honor overdrafts up to the Bounce Protection limit on your account. The bank's normal non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee (see current Fee Schedule) for each transaction will be deducted from your limit. You will receive an overdraft notice in the mail each time overdraft items are paid.

Two-Factor Authentication

{beginAccordion}

What is two-factor authentication (2FA)?

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps safeguard your account information. To implement 2FA, you will need to enroll an email address and a phone number (mobile or landline). Once this information is entered, you’ll choose one of three options to receive a one-time verification code: 1. Text message to the mobile phone entered, 2. Automated phone call to phone number entered, or 3. Authenticator App (download the Authy app here).

After entering the verification code, if you are logging in from a secure computer, you have the option to select “Don’t ask for code again on this computer.” This allows you to avoid having to enter a verification code during each login. This option should never be selected on a shared or public computer. 

How does the phone call verification process work?

If you select to receive a phone call (cell phone or landline), you will enter a single specific digit, as directed, before the verification code is provided.

If you do not answer the phone call, please note that a second call will not be made automatically and the system will not leave codes on voicemail. Therefore, if you do not answer the authentication phone call, you will need to select the option to have the code re-sent. (Note: The “from” phone number may be listed as coming from anywhere in the US) 

What should I do if I did not receive a verification code to continue with the two-factor authentication enrollment?

Please be sure the phone number you entered is correct. If it needs to be changed, contact us at (248) 628-2533. 

How much time do I have to enter the verification code?

Codes are valid for up to six minutes and will expire after that time. 

Can I lock myself out from entering an incorrect verification code?

Yes, you can get locked out of the enrollment process if too many attempts are made with an incorrect verification code (more than six times in a single hour). There is no manual reset for this; you will need to wait an hour to try again following your first attempt. If you make more than 20 unsuccessful attempts in a 24-hour period, your login will be 'Suspended' and you will not be able to attempt again for 24 hours. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact us at (248) 628-2533. 

If I selected “Remember this computer,” why am I being asked for a verification code each time I log in?

There are several reasons you may be prompted for a verification code:

  • if you log in on different browsers
  • if you deleted your browser history
  • if you have your browser settings set to delete your cookies and history automatically

Can I receive the two-factor authentication verification code via email?

No, this option is not available. The code can be received using one of the following options:

  • Text message
  • Phone call
  • Authy App (A third-party app that generates a one-time passcode. To register you will need an email address and phone number.)

How can I reset my two-factor authentication enrollment?

You can reset your own two-factor authentication enrollment in both the app and online by going to your Profile page, then select ‘Security’ within the ‘Settings’ area.
