If using your checking or savings account you will need your bank account number, bank routing number and name of bank.

EZPay only, if you choose to store your payment information you will not need to re-enter this information unless you change bank(s) account(s).

    1. Why am I being asked to provide the card security code on my credit card when making a credit card payment online?
      This is a security feature that provides increased protection against credit card fraud for both the customer and the merchant. This 3 or 4 digit code is often requested by merchants when a credit payment is being made over the internet when the credit card is not present. Card security codes are one way of making sure the purchaser has the credit card in their possession.

  6. Can I make an online payment on a past due policy using the Wawanesa Online Payment Service?
    Yes. However, if your policy is in a canceled status at the time the payment is made, coverage reinstatement is subject to the following:

    Wawanesa reserves the right to refuse reinstatement of your policy coverage. Therefore, if you wish to make a payment on an expired or canceled policy we strongly recommend that you contact Customer Service and inquire as to the policy reinstatement eligibility prior to using the Service. If you do not contact Customer Service to establish eligibility, we will have no knowledge of your desire to reinstate coverage until such time as we receive your payment, and Wawanesa will have to make the coverage reinstatement decision after your Designated Account has been debited. In that case, if Wawanesa refuses to reinstate the policy, the payment, less any outstanding earned premium due at the time policy cancellation took place, will be returned in the form of a refund check payable to the policyholder. The refund and notice of policy reinstatement refusal will be mailed to the policyholder at the last known address on the policy.

    Back to Top

  2. How secure is my bill payment and personal information?
    The Wawanesa Online Payment Service uses several methods to ensure that your information is secure:

    • SSL: The Wawanesa Online Payment Service uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) that ensures your connection and information is secure from outside inspection.

    • Automatic Signout: The Wawanesa Online Payment Service automatically signs you out of a session if you are inactive longer than 30 minutes. We recommend you sign out immediately after you are finished transacting your payment(s).

    Back to Top

  3. Do I need any special hardware or software to access the Wawanesa Online Payment Service?
    All you need to access the Wawanesa Online Payment Service and pay your statement is a computer with Internet access and an appropriate browser (See "What is an appropriate browser?" question below). This could be your own computer, or even one located in a library, Internet cafe or at a copy center.

    Back to Top

  4. What measures does the Wawanesa Online Payment Service have in place while transmitting messages to help ensure that my sensitive banking information is not intercepted?
    When you send us personal information through our website, we will first establish a "secure session" through the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL technology encodes/encrypts information as it is being sent over the Internet between your computer and the Wawanesa Online Payment Service. The secured communication connection provided by SSL helps ensure transmitted information remains confidential.

    Back to Top

  5. How do I know when a secure session has been created?
    Most of the supported browsers will give you a message box stating when you are going into a secure session. In addition, Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator both use clear visual symbols to indicate whether or not they are operating in a secure mode. Depending on which browser you are using, the symbols are displayed either at the bottom left or bottom right of your browser window. For instance, in Internet Explorer, on the bottom right side of the browser window, when there is a secure session in place, there is an icon that looks like a small padlock, with the lock closed. This icon disappears when the session is no longer secure. Netscape Navigator uses a key icon in the lower left corner of the screen to show security status. When the key is solid (i.e., unbroken), the session is secure. Another indication that your browser is operating in secure mode can be found in the web site address. The address will begin with 'http://' in standard, non-secure mode and with 'https://' in secure mode. The s in 'https' stands for secure.

    Back to Top

  6. What is an appropriate browser?
    Our web pages are designed for a minimum screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels with the most recent production version (excluding beta or test) of one of the following browsers:

    Older browser versions and beta browser versions may result in lost functionality. If a site feature does not work as expected, download the latest version of your browser using the appropriate link above and try again. If you need any help in upgrading your browser, please contact your Internet Service Provider.

    In addition, your browser must have Javascript (called Active Scripting in Internet Explorer) enabled and a standard 128-bit encryption security to access any password protected sections of this site and keep your information private.

    To check the information about your current browser, please choose "Help" in the upper right menu of your browser and click "About".

    Back to Top

  7. If I am traveling, will the Wawanesa Online Payment Service work from an overseas location?
    It may, but there is no guarantee because strong encryption software could not be exported from the United States until recently. For example, an Internet cafe in Europe might not be able to support the level of encryption necessary. Therefore, we recommend that if you will be traveling for a long period of time, make other arrangements to have your Wawanesa statement paid (including prepaying the bill before you leave).

    Back to Top

  8. What are my obligations to help secure my transactions with Wawanesa on the Wawanesa Online Payment Service?
    As more completely spelled out in the Terms and Conditions, you are responsible for not giving out your banking account information or bank routing information, or your Wawanesa policy information. Furthermore, you need to make sure that you are using an appropriate browser. Additionally, the Wawanesa Online Payment Service automatically signs you out of a session if you are inactive longer than 30 minutes. We recommend you sign out immediately after you are finished transacting your payment(s).
