Why is my debit card payment for my phone/gas/ electric bill not processing?
I’ve never had any trouble with these in the past…
Several utility companies have changed the way they process online bill payments through their own websites, which may cause debit transactions to be denied. If you experience any trouble completing an online payment using your Evans debit card, simply select the “process payment as a credit card” link found on their bill payment page. The transaction amount will be deducted directly from your checking account, and is a safer transaction-you will be prompted to enter the CVV code on the back of the card.
How do I activate my Evans Bank debit card?
To activate a new Evans Bank debit card, you must call the number listed on the card and follow the prompts. Contact Customer Service with any further questions concerning debit card activation.

I am trying to set up direct deposit, and the system is not recognizing my account number. Am I inputting it correctly?
When setting up direct deposit, please be sure to include the three digits after the hyphen (000 or 020) as this is also part of your account number. If you are still having issues setting up direct deposit, please contact our Customer Service Center for assistance.
I am trying to calculate the interest on my Evans | ONE Checking account and am not clear on how the amount is arrived at. Is there a formula to calculate the interest?
Interest on your Evans | ONE Checking account accrues daily, based on the balance in the account and whether or not you met the monthly qualifications. Checks that you deposited into your account will not earn interest for one business day, even though the amount of the checks may show in your available balance. The following are approximate calculations that you can use to estimate your interest payment.
Scenario One: Monthly qualifications are not met: Multiply your average balance by 0.10% for the yearly amount, then divide by twelve for the monthly amount.
Scenario Two: Monthly qualifications are met and your balance was never above $10,000: Multiply your average balance by 1.50% for the yearly amount, then divide by twelve for the monthly amount. (Because different months have 28, 29 (leap year), 30 and 31 days, this calculated amount will vary from the actual amount credited.)
Scenario Three: Monthly qualifications are met and your balance was above $10,000 for each day of the month: Multiply $10,000 by 1.50% for the yearly amount, then divide by twelve for the monthly amount. Add to this figure the result of multiplying the amount above $10,000 by 0.25%, then dividing by twelve. (Because different months have 28, 29 (leap year), 30, and 31 days, this calculated amount will vary from the actual amount credited.)
What else should I know about Evans Overdraft Protection options?
Safeguard Overdraft Service (SOS) allows you to overdraw your account up to the disclosed limit for a fee in order to pay a transaction. Even if you have overdraft protection, Safeguard Overdraft Service (SOS) is still available as secondary coverage if the other protection source is exhausted.
