Online Account Access Sign Up
Enrolling in Online Banking is easy if you have a First National Bank and Trust consumer banking account. If you do not already have a First National Bank account, you can quickly open an account online now.
1. Read the First National Bank Online Service agreement below and by clicking "I Accept", you agree to comply with the terms outlined.
2. To keep your accounts safe and secure, you'll be asked to answer some specific questions about your account, so please be prepared by having your account number available when you proceed.
3. You'll provide a Security Question and Answer, which will be used to establish your identity if you ever need to call First National Bank about your Online Banking account (tip: when determining your question and answer, make sure you indicate one that is easily remembered and the answer does not change).
Note: If you currently have a TeleBanc Personal ID Number, you will have immediate access to your new Online Banking account. If not, your request for online banking access will be forwarded to the bank where a temporary Access ID and Password will be assigned. Note: your Access ID and Password are case sensitive at log in. These two pieces of information will be sent to you separately in the mail to reduce the risk of mail delivery intervention.
This Agreement applies to your use of FirstNet, the First National Bank and Trust Company on Beloit's internet banking service, which permits you to access your accounts with us via the Internet for services selected by you and agreed upon by us. This Agreement applies to all persons that are parties to the accounts. In this Agreement, the terms "you" and "your" refer to each depositor on an account accessible by Internet Service, and the terms "us," "we," and "our" refer to the Bank.
FirstNet is a service provided solely for use by First National Bank and Trust Company of Beloit customers. You will need a user ID and password to gain access to your accounts using FirstNet. We will initially assign you a password to gain access. You will be required to change the password the first time you log in and every 3 months after a password change. You should protect your password at all times.
You agree to keep the password safe and to not record, disclose or make the password available to anyone. Anyone who has access to your password will have full access to your accounts and the services you can perform on FirstNet. You have no ability to limit any such person's authority. If anyone uses your password with your permission, you will be responsible for any transactions performed by that person.
Lost or Stolen Password
If your password has been lost or stolen, contact the First National Bank and Trust Company of Beloit immediately. (See contact information) Calling us is the best way of minimizing your potential losses. If you tell us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your password without your permission. If you do not tell us within 2 business days after you learned of the loss or theft of your password, and we could prove we could have prevented someone from using your password without your permission, your loss could be as much as $500.00.
FirstNet is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For purposes of electronic transactions, our business days are Monday through Friday excluding holidays as determined by the First National Bank and Trust Company of Beloit. All FirstNet transaction requests received after 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday will be processed the next business day. Any transactions initiated on non-business days, or Holidays as determined by First National Bank and Trust Company of Beloit will be processed the next business day.
You can use FirstNet to perform the following:
- View account information
- Transfer funds among your deposit accounts
- Transfer funds from your line of credit to your checking account
- Make payments from your checking and savings accounts to your loan accounts
- Initiate bill payments
Under federal regulations, you may make no more than six preauthorized electronic fund transfers and telephone transfers, including FirstNet transactions, checks and point-of-sale transactions per month from your savings or money market deposit account. Of these six transactions, you are limited to no more than three transactions per month by check, draft, debit card or similar order to third parties. Each fund transfer or bill payment through Net Bank from your savings or money market deposit account is counted as one of the six limited transfers you are permitted each month. However, payments to your loan accounts with us are not counted toward this limit for savings and money market deposit accounts.
If you select the bill payment service when signing up for FirstNet, you can pay bills either on an automatic recurring basis or periodically as you request. You can use bill payment with any checking account.
To use bill payment, you will provide us with the name and address of the payee (i.e., the person you want to pay), your account number with that person and any other information we require to properly debit your account with us and credit your account with the payee. If your account number or any other information changes, or if you wish to add or delete payees, you must provide us with these changes at least one business days in advance of a payment. Any such changes can be entered in the appropriate fields through the Bill Payment section of FirstNet. You authorize us to make all changes submitted through FirstNet by you or any other person having access to your PIN and account information.
We work with payees to encourage them to accept an electronic or check payment. If we are unsuccessful, or if we believe that the payee cannot process payments in a timely manner, we may decline to make future payments to this payee. In the unlikely event that this occurs, we will send you a notice. We may refuse to make payments to certain payees in our sole discretion (including, without limitation, government agencies) and to payees that choose not to participate in the services.
Bill payments are processed either through an electronic transmission to the payee or by check mailed to the payee. Payees who receive electronic delivery will receive your payment information, including your account number with the payee, through a computer link. All checks are sent through the U.S. mail. Payments made with checks are generally received and credited by most payees within five business days. If we receive any payment instructions from a payee, we may follow those instructions, to help ensure that the payment is received by the payee and promptly credited to your account.
To help ensure that your payments arrive on time, you must schedule your payments to be paid at least five business days before the payment due date. This generally allows sufficient time for the payee to receive and post your payment.
If you follow all of the procedures described in this Agreement completely, and a bill payment has not arrived at the payee within the allowable number of days, we will reimburse you for all penalties and associated late fee charges incurred due to such a late payment up to $50. We shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you through the FirstNet Payment Service because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
- If your Payment Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction.
- FirstNet Payment Service or Net Bank Services are not working properly and you know or have been advised by us about the problem before you execute the transaction.
- You have not provided us with the correct name, phone number or account information for the Payee, or you have otherwise provided incomplete Payment Instructions; or,
- Circumstances beyond our control (including, but not limited to, fire, flood, strikes or labor shortages, power disruptions, or interference from any other outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transaction.
Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if we cause an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Payment Account or cause funds from your Payment Account to be directed to a Payee which do not comply with your Payment Instructions, we shall be responsible for, and our liability is expressly limited to, returning the improperly transferred funds to your Payment Account and for directing to the proper Payee any previously misdirected transactions.
The following payments are prohibited through the FirstNet Bill Payment Service:
- Tax Payments and other governmental fees
- Court ordered payments, alimony and child support payments
- Payments to Payees outside of the United States
Returned Bill Payment Service Transaction
In using the FirstNet Bill Payment Service, you are requesting that we make payments for you from your Payment Account. If we are unable to complete the transaction for any reason associated with your Payment Account (for example, there are not sufficient funds in your Payment Account to cover the transaction), the transaction may not be completed. In some instances, you will receive a return notice from the Bank. In such case, you agree that:
- You will deposit the amount that your account is overdraw
- You will reimburse us for any fees imposed by the Bank as a result of the return
- You will reimburse us for any fees we incur in attempting to collect the amount of the return from you
- We are hereby authorized to report the facts concerning the return to a credit reporting agency
Cancel a Funds Transfer or Bill Payment
You may cancel or change a pending fund transfer by selecting the transfer and changing or deleting the amount and date fields. The instruction to cancel or change the transfer must be received before midnight on the transfer date. If the change is not made by that time, we may process the transaction.
If you tell us in advance to make a regular payment at a regular time out of your account without further action by you (a preauthorized transfer), you can stop these payments by following the procedure in the preceding paragraph. Or you can contact us in time for us to receive your request three business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call or email, we may also require you to put your request in writing in a form approved by us and get the form to us within 14 days after you call or email. We will require that you tell us the exact amount of the debit, the next date the debit is to be made and the exact name of the payee. If you stop payment of such a preauthorized transfer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, we will stop the next debit and all subsequent preauthorized payments to that payee.
If you order us to stop a preauthorized transfer three business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and the stop payment order is made according to the terms and conditions of the account and this Agreement, including the requirement that you give us the exact amount of the debit, the next date of the debit and the exact name of the payee, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages proximately caused by our failure.
If we fail to cancel or stop any funds transfer or bill payment, the payment will stand unless you show us that payment to the payee was unenforceable. If we recredit your account after transferring funds over a valid and timely cancellation request, you agree to sign a statement describing the dispute with the payee, to transfer to us all of your rights against the payee, and to assist us in any legal action taken against that person.
When you schedule a funds transfer or bill payment using FirstNet, you authorize us to withdraw the necessary funds from your account with us. We deduct the amount of your funds transfer or bill payment from your account on the date we process your instruction. Each instruction to us to withdraw or transfer from an account is an order to us to pay from that account at that time or on a later date, if any, indicated in the instruction. We may charge payments against the account even though the charge creates an overdraft, or we may refuse to make payments if the charge creates an overdraft. If you overdraw your account, you agree to immediately pay us the overdrawn amount, together with any applicable fees. If the account is maintained in connection with an overdraft credit plan, any overdraft will be made in accordance with the agreement or rules governing that account rather than this Agreement.
If you submit an oral or written stop payment request for a preauthorized payment, we will charge you for each such stop payment order, the charge for stopping payment identified in our current fee schedule as may be amended from time to time.
If you cancel or change any pending funds transfer or bill payment by completing the appropriate fields from the payment menu, there will be no charge.
We will charge you for FirstNet Bill Payment fees, if any, identified in our current fee schedule as may be amended by us from time to time, and otherwise in accordance with our Deposit account rules.
Your FirstNet account activity will appear on your periodic account statement. If there are no transfers in a particular month, you will receive your account statement at least quarterly.

We will notify you with the results of the investigation within 10 business days and will correct any error promptly. If more time is needed, however, we may take up to forty-five 45 days to investigate a complaint or question. If this occurs, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error. This will allow you to use the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days from your original contact, we may not credit your account until the investigation is completed.
The 10 day periods in the preceding paragraph may be extended to 20 business days, if the error involves a transfer to or from the account within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made. If the error involves an electronic transfer from your account to buy goods or services direct from a merchant, a transfer initiated outside the United States or a transfer that occurred within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made, the 45 day time period to investigate your complaint or question will be 90 days in place of 45 days.
