I'm confused. I logged on to the Checkfree website tonight to change my password (I do it every 60 days) and I get this message about exciting changes that will be made early Sunday morning. One of the changes is:

Accelerated Payment Processing—You will be able to schedule payments as little as two business days in advance, instead of the previous four-day standard. (Business days do not include Saturday, Sunday or Federal holidays.)

But yesterday, UK Banker Boy and TheDreamer said that First IB will require four days processing time (Dreamer implied Checkfree was FirstIB's bill pay back end) instead of the previous two. ( and

If Checkfree is the FirstIB back end.. why would they decrease the processing time for us freeloaders and increase it for First IB customers?
