A. By using Community Trust Ready Pay, Ready Pay Now, and/or the VRU voice automated system, you are acknowledging that you own the deposit account from which the installment payment is being made, and you are authorizing the bank to initiate an ACH debit from your deposit account to Community Trust Bank to be credited to your installment loan account.

Q. Do the Community Trust Ready Pay and Ready Pay Now systems accurately reflect the amounts due on my installment loans account?
A. The Community Trust Ready Pay, Ready Pay Now, and Ready VRU notification of amount due on your installment loan account may not always present the actual amounts owed. For example, the amount due may not reflect payments that have been made when the payment method did not have adequate funds to satisfy the payment amount and have been returned due to insufficient funds. In this case, Community Trust Ready Pay, Ready Pay Now, and Ready VRU payment systems may show the amount due as zero, when in fact there are sums due because of the returned ACH. There could also be other reasons that the amount on these systems do not reflect the actual payment amount due. This is a payment system, and may not contain the most current information about amounts due on your account. To verify the current payment due and balance information on your installment account, contact either your loan officer, local branch, or Customer Service at 1-800-282-7762.
