Processing Terms and Conditions

General Understanding

If using Omega Benefit Strategies for Electronic Funds Transfers: I authorize Omega Benefit Strategies, LLC (“OBS”) to perform electronic funds transfer (EFT) debits from the account that I indicate, and I authorize my financial institution to debit from the account for payments due as described by the instructions I have provided to OBS. I understand that the funds, less the Service Fee(s), will be used to make payments to my billers (identified by me and acceptable to OBS) in the amount(s) that I indicate. I acknowledge that if any EFT attempt is returned/declined resulting in insufficient funds to pay my bill(s) in full, then my bills may not be paid, and that punitive action may be taken by my billers, up to and including late fees and cancellation.

If using OBS for Direct Deposits: I have authorized another party (“Originator”) to send funds to OBS where the funds will be placed into the Holding Account designated for me. I attest and understand that the funds, less the Service Fee(s), will be used to make payments to my billers (identified by me and acceptable to OBS). I understand that my bills may be affected if I cancel this Direct Deposit Authorization or if the Originator cannot or will not perform the Direct Deposit on my behalf.

This authorization is to remain in effect until the Originator has received written notification from me of its cancellation. I may cancel this authorization at any time; however, I must allow my Originator a reasonable time to act upon the cancellation notice.

OBS’s function: I acknowledge that OBS is functioning as a Collector on the behalf of me, my employer, my Biller(s), a group within which I am a member, or any combination of these entities. As such, OBS will only draft or accept deposits for specific amounts needed in response to an invoice/bill. OBS will NOT intentionally accumulate funds other than for the express purpose of remitting the funds to my Biller(s).

Communications: I understand and acknowledge that: (a) OBS will communicate with me via email and/or cell phone text messages, (b) I am required to provide one or both of these to OBS, (c) OBS will use these as the primary means of communicating with me, (d) if I do not supply a valid email and/or cell phone number, then OBS has no obligation to communicate with me by other means, (e) if I change my email or cell phone number, I must provide the new information to OBS, and (f) OBS is not responsible for any costs, fees, or charges related to my email and/or cell phone communications. I further understand and acknowledge that when communicating with OBS, in any form, OBS may, at its sole discretion record, copy, and save all communications without limitation.

Processing Rights and Obligations: This Processing Terms and Conditions Agreement describes your rights and obligations as a user of Omega Benefit Strategies, LLC (“OBS”) and its processing services (“OBS Services”). Use of the OBS Services indicates acceptance of terms and conditions set forth in the Processing Terms and Conditions Agreement (“Agreement”), as each may be amended from time to time. This Agreement is provided in electronic form, and by using the OBS Services you agree to accept the Agreement in that form. Please read the Agreement carefully because it is our legal agreement with you that governs your use of OBS Services.

You may use OBS Services to direct OBS to make withdrawals from your checking, credit, or debit card account, or receive deposits into your Holding Account (“Funding Events”). You may also use OBS Services to make payments from your designated Holding Account to the “Billers” you choose in accordance with this Agreement (“Bill Payments” or “Payment Events”). Funding and Payment Events are collectively known herein as “Transactions”. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are in addition to the account agreements, disclosures, fee schedule and other documents in effect from time to time governing your Account, Holding Account and Transactions.

Instructions: Instructions for how OBS is to process Funding and Payment Events must be provided to us on standardized forms (“Instructions”), either in print or digital format, and must include enough information to allow us to process your requests. Instructions may be supplied to OBS by you, your employer, or your insurance agent (“Agent”). These Instructions must include information that identifies you, your contact information, your Account, the amounts of Funding Events, the amounts of Payment Events, your billing account number, the Fees, the frequency of each event, your signature (in either written or electronic form), and any other information required by OBS. If the OBS Services are being offered to you through your employer, then you may be required to attest that you are an employee of the employer by initialing the “I attest…” statement on the Instructions, if available. If you are endorsing this Agreement by means of an electronic signature, then your digital signature shall serve as your attestation that you are employed by your employer at the time of your acceptance.

Electronic Signature Disclosure: Signature is being made available to you as a convenience. When you submit your signature electronically, OBS will require a closed-loop, multi-phase authorization process. The process requires that (a) the details of the transaction will be entered into OBS’s (or its delegated) system, (b) an electronic request for authorization will be sent to you at a private location that is accessible only by you, and (c) you will respond to said request thereby completing the authorization process wherein your response shall constitute your consent to this electronic format. Pursuant to the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act Section 101(b), you are NOT required to use this method and a secure form will be made available to you.

Account: If you direct OBS to make withdrawals, you must designate an account from which the withdrawals are to be made. By using OBS Services, you agree that, based upon instructions received under your signature or electronic signature, which may be fulfilled by User ID (PIN) returned by your cell phone or e-mail, we can charge your designated account (“Account”) by debiting funds on your behalf. If you direct OBS to accept deposits, you must obtain a Holding Account number from OBS and provide instructions to the originator. Any failure by you to do so will not create an obligation or liability on OBS.

Holding Account: Because many Funding Events occur prior to Payment Events, OBS assigns an account number to you (“Holding Account”). Once funds are placed into the Holding Account, they are the property of the Biller(s) and are “at rest” before being passed to the Biller(s). This three-stage process of Funding Events, funds at-rest, and Payment Events is called the Pass-Thru process. Biller(s) may under certain circumstances, and at their sole discretion, allow OBS to refund these funds back to you. The term Holding Account as used herein means a unique key for tracking the ingress or egress of funds during the Pass-Thru process. A Holding Account is NOT an actual account of any kind and specifically is NOT a depository account, a demand deposit account, an interest-bearing account, nor an open-to-buy account.

Each Transaction will result in an increase or decrease in the balance of your Holding Account.

Recurring Funding Events: A recurring Funding Event is one that is automatically scheduled by the OBS Service or your deposit originator. Based upon your selected frequency settings, a processing date is calculated for the next occurrence of the Funding Event. If OBS is withdrawing funds from your Account, then OBS will initiate the Funding Event on the specified date. If OBS is withdrawing funds from your Account, please consider the following as you select your frequency settings:

  • How you are paid:
    • If you are paid by direct deposit, you should make the frequency on the day following your payday.
    • If you are paid by cash or check, you should allow time for you to make your deposit into your Account. Generally, we recommend this as two days following your payday.
  • How we make withdrawals:
    • If by credit, debit, or prepaid card then you will be notified immediately by email if there is a problem. This should not create an overdraft on your Account since as each Funding Event is authorized.
    • If by prepaid card, this must be your permanent card and not the starter card.
    • If by e-check then there will be a delay as your bank has up to 5 Business Days to process our request, and you may not be notified if there is a problem.

Though initiated on schedule, your bank may not post to your account for up to 10 days – be sure to deduct the designated amount from your account on the scheduled date.

Available Funds for Funding Events: You agree to have available funds on deposit in your Account in amounts sufficient to complete the Funding Events initiated by OBS. OBS reserves the right, without liability, to suspend your Funding Events if you fail to comply with the above requirement or any other terms of this Agreement, and you acknowledge that if OBS suspends your Funding Events, then OBS’s obligations to remit payments to your biller(s) is nullified and you are solely responsible for all future payments. You understand and acknowledge that if you fail to comply with this requirement that your bills will not be paid by OBS, and that punitive action may be taken by your billers, up to and including late fees, cancellation, or termination of coverage and/or service. OBS shall not be liable for any fees charged by your financial institution, whatsoever, including those caused as the result of a Funding Event.

Rerunning failed Funding Events: You agree that if a Funding Event fails OBS may, at its sole discretion, rerun the failed Funding Event at any time within thirty (30) days of the notice of failure. After thirty (30) days, OBS will not rerun a failed Funding Event unless instructed to do so directly by you, or indirectly by you through your Agent contacting OBS on your behalf. Authorization to rerun may be done via phone, email, fax, or letter by either you or your Agent. OBS shall not be liable for any fees charged by your financial institution, whatsoever, including those caused as the result of this Funding Event.

Modifying a Funding Event: You may modify your instructions to us at any time by contacting us provided you allow us ample time to make the modification. Your modification request may require you to submit the request in writing. For instance, if you change your banking information or increase your draft amount, you must submit these to us in writing. You acknowledge and agree to allow OBS to modify the Funding Event instructions and amounts in the following conditions:

(a) If the OBS Service Fee is omitted, OBS may add this to instructions and adjust the total,

(b) if a mathematical error was made in adding the individual amounts shown in the instructions such that the total amount shown is not equal to the sum of the individual items, OBS will correct math,

(c) If the amount billed by the Biller is different than the amount shown in the instructions and the difference between these amounts is less than five dollars ($5.00) per Funding Event.

(d) A Product you purchased has an increase based on your age, income, or other factors, and to which you agreed with the seller about said changes.

(e) A Product you purchased automatically cancels due to your age, another member’s age, or other factors to which you agreed with the seller about said changes.

(f) the account number provided is not valid, illegible, or returned by your financial institution as an error, and you provide a revision by any means, whether by phone, mail, e-mail, or facsimile, then OBS will make the account number correction; however, if you change the account, supplying us with an alternate account, then you will be required to submit this change in writing to OBS.

These terms were last updated on June 21, 2019

If OBS makes a modification, then you will be notified by email. If you do not have an email address on file with OBS, or if your email address is not valid, then OBS will not make the modification. OBS will allow you ample time to receive this email and contact us if necessary to approve or decline the modification, however, if you do not respond, then OBS will process the Funding Event as if approved by you.

Cancelling a Funding Event: To cancel a Funding Event that you have scheduled through OBS, you must contact OBS with a cancellation request before the cut-off time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time) two (2) days prior to the date the Funding Event is scheduled to be processed. To cancel a Funding Event that you scheduled through a deposit originator, you must contact the deposit originator. To cancel a Funding Event you may contact us by telephone at 508-986-9359 or by email at premium@omegabfs.com or in writing at the address shown at the bottom of this Agreement. You must allow OBS ample time to process your request. OBS may cancel Funding Events as outlined in the Section labeled, “Termination.”

Stop Funding Events: Once a Funding Event has been initiated you will not be able to stop it. Once a Funding Event has debited from your Account, you cannot cancel or stop it. To stop a Funding Event, you may contact us by telephone at 508-986-9359 or by email at premium@omegabfs.com or in writing at the address shown at the bottom of this Agreement. You must allow OBS ample time to process your request.

Biller: You must designate the complete name of the Biller, the Biller account number, and the Biller’s remittance address, exactly as shown on the billing statement or invoice. We reserve the right to accept or reject any Biller designated by you. If we do so, we will notify you promptly. You hereby agree and authorize us to utilize the most effective means to process your Transactions, including, without limitation, electronic, paper, or other remittance means. You may only pay Billers pre-approved by OBS. For a complete list of approved Billers, email premium@omegabfs.com and request a list.

Bill Payments: In scheduling Payment Events, OBS does not use the payment due date. OBS will remit payments on a date between the payment due date and the payment grace period as allowed by the Biller (“Remittance Date”). Payments will be processed on the Business Day (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays) that is designated as the payment’s processing date. Payments due on a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment’s processing date will be processed on the first Business Day following the designated processing date. OBS will calculate the estimated arrival date of your Payment Events. This is only an estimate. Please allow ample time for your Payment Events to reach your Billers.

Authorization and Event Processing: You represent and warrant that you are acting with full authority, and that you are duly authorized to execute this Agreement. By providing OBS with Instructions, you authorize OBS to follow the Instructions. Modification of the Credit/Debit card Expiration Date, whether given orally or in writing, shall be treated as an extension of this authorization.

When OBS receives a Payment Instruction, you authorize OBS to debit your Holding Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the due date.

OBS will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, OBS shall incur no liability if OBS is unable to complete any Payment Event because (1) your Holding Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the Transaction, (2) the Instructions do not allow OBS to clearly identify your account on the bill, (3) you are not on the bill or are not identifiable on the bill, (4) the payment processing center is not working properly and you know or have been advised by OBS about the malfunction, (5) you have not provided OBS with the correct Instructions, and/or, (6) circumstances beyond control of OBS(such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the Transaction.

Available Funds for Bill Payments: You agree to have available and collected funds on deposit in your Holding Account in amounts sufficient to complete all Payment Events requested on the Remittance Date. OBS reserves the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a Payment Event if you fail to comply with the above requirements or any other terms of this Agreement. If you do not have sufficient funds in the Holding Account, you acknowledge that your Bill Payment will be limited to the balance in your Holding Account, and may be used to partially pay the bill up to, but not to exceed the balance in your Holding Account. If multiple payments are being made to a single Biller, and your Holding Account lacks sufficient funds to pay all payments in-full, then OBS will, at its sole discretion, determine the priority and amount of each payment, and OBS will not be liable for any adverse effect caused by its determination of the priority or amount remitted for each payment item. If multiple payments are being made to more than one Biller, and your Holding Account lacks sufficient funds to pay all payments in-full for all Billers, then OBS will, at its sole discretion, determine the priority and amount of each payment, and OBS will not be liable for any adverse effect caused by its determination of the priority or amount remitted for each payment item. Any partial payment shall not represent a satisfaction of the bill as-if paid-in-full and you are obligated to remit the unpaid portion to the Biller. The result of a partial payment may result in adverse effects on you from the Biller including, but not limited to, late fees and termination of coverage and/or service. OBS shall not be liable for any adverse effect that is created due to a partial payment.

Excess Funds Handling: If at any time your Holding Account has an excessive balance, above and beyond what is needed for your Payment Events, OBS may refund the excess to you. OBS will attempt to contact you and refund the excess back to the account from which it originated. If unable to return the funds to the originating account, OBS will make a reasonable effort to find and contact you to obtain your mailing address so that a refund check can be mailed to you.

Canceling a Payment Event: To cancel a Payment Event that you have scheduled through OBS, you must contact OBS with a cancellation request before the cut-off time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time) two (2) days prior to the date the Payment Event is scheduled to be processed. To cancel a Payment Event, you may contact us by telephone at 508-986-9359 or by email at premium@omegabfs.com or in writing at the address shown at the bottom of this Agreement. You must allow OBS ample time to process your request. Please note that OBS may be obligated to remit the payment depending upon whether the Biller presents your bill as a paid-in-advance or paid-in-arrears.

Stop Payment Events: Once a Bill Payment has been debited from your Holding Account, you cannot cancel or stop it. To stop a Payment Event, you may contact us by telephone at 508-986-9359 or by email at premium@omegabfs.com or in writing at the address shown at the bottom of this Agreement. You must allow OBS ample time to process your request.

Termination: You may terminate this Agreement by written notice to OBS by email at premium@omegabfs.com or at the following address: PO Box 730, Falmouth, Massachusetts 02540. OBS is not responsible for any Transaction made before OBS has a reasonable opportunity to act on your termination notice. You remain obligated for any payments made by OBS on your behalf. Any Transaction that is in-progress will be completed, and then OBS will suspend all future Transactions. OBS reserves the right to terminate this Agreement at any time. OBS may, at its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement for any reason including, but not limited to:

(a) Excess Funding Failures, Disputes and Chargebacks,

(b) Skipped Funding Events whether requested by you, due to temporary leave from your employment, or any other reason causing a Funding Event to miss its regular schedule,

(c) Funding Events without corresponding Payment Events within any 90-day period,

(d) Problems that OBS cannot resolve on your behalf, or

(e) Any other reason without limitation.

If OBS is terminating this Agreement without your knowledge, OBS will notify you via email or cell phone text message based on the contact information on OBS’s records at the time of termination.
