Accessing Your Bank Accounts through Liberty Personal Online Banking
To access your account through Liberty Personal Online Banking you must complete an enrollment form online and have an eligible Bank Account (Checking Account, Investment MMDA Account, Savings Account, and/or Loan). Once Liberty Bank has processed your enrollment you will receive a mailing to the address of record on your primary bank account containing your computer generated user access ID and your initial activation password. At that time you will be ready to begin banking online.
The activation password is only good only for the initial login. You will be prompted to change your access ID and password. Your new password must be 8-12 characters in length and at least one must be numeric and one alpha. Your password is case sensitive. Do not give your password to anyone or write it down where it could be accessible to another person. We strongly urge you to avoid using common and easy to decipher passwords such as birth dates, last names, account numbers or social security numbers. Do not store your password and access ID in the memory of your computer.
When you give someone your Access ID and Password, you are authorizing that person to use the service and you are responsible for all transactions the person performs using the service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then transactions that person performs after the time you notified us are considered unauthorized. You agree to assume responsibility for all transactions through the service with your Liberty BankAccess ID and Password, up to the limits allowed by applicable law.
Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.
Bill Pay Service
Bill Payment services are an optional service. You must select yes for bill payment on your initial online enrollment form or contact us at 817-656-0038 to subscribe to this service. Through Liberty Personal Online Banking you can arrange for the payment of your current, future, and recurring bills up to the balance in your account.

By furnishing us with the names of your payees/merchants and their addresses, you authorize us to follow the payment instructions to these payees/merchants that you provide us. You may pay an unlimited number of payees using online bill pay. When we receive a payment instruction we will remit the funds to the payee on your behalf, from the funds in your selected account on the day you have instructed them to be sent (“Payment Date”). However, we shall not be obligated to make any such payment unless your account and/or overdraft protection plan has sufficient funds or credit available to pay the bill on the Payment Date. Funds from ALL bill payments (whether these payments are made electronically or by check) will be withdrawn from your account ON THE PAYMENT DATE specified.
You have the right to stop or change any scheduled payment.

If you have timely scheduled a bill payment as required above and Liberty Bank does not properly complete a bill payment on time or in the correct amount, we will pay any late fees or finance charges as long as your account was in good standing with the merchant prior to this incident. We will also be liable to you, to the extent provided by law, if we fail to stop a payment pursuant to your timely order to do so as set out above. We shall not be responsible for any charges imposed or any other action taken by a payee resulting from a payment that you have not scheduled properly, including any applicable finance charges and late fees. We will not be responsible for any charges imposed or any other action taken by a payee resulting from a payee incorrectly crediting an account. In addition, we will not be liable if any third party through which any bill payment is made fails to properly transmit the payment to the intended payee. We will also not be liable if there are insufficient funds or credit availability in your designated payment account and/or overdraft protection plan; if a legal order directs us to prohibit withdrawals from the payment account; if the payment account is closed or frozen; or if any part of the electronic funds transfer system is not working properly.
