New and Enhanced Features

New and Enhanced Features:

  • Transaction Posting:  Transactions will post to your account moments after we receive them.  That means deposits, checks and Visa check card transactions will post and update your balance accordingly within minutes of receiving them and will appear immediately on online banking and telebanking.
  • Message Center: Have a question after hours? Message the bank thru your Online Banking Message Center. We will answer you the next business day.
  • Downloads: Download your statements to Quicken or QuickBooks.
  • E-Statements: Signup for e-statements with the click of a button.
  • Enhanced security: The authentication system offers upgraded security. Also sign up to receive login and password change alerts. 

Login instructions (To be used on Thursday, June 6, 2013):

  • When you log-in to the new Online Banking system for the first time you will be asked to input your current sign on and password.
  • Instead of the simple challenge questions you used in the past, you will be asked to validate your identity through a one-time security code via a phone call or SMS message.  These enhanced security features help safeguard your information. Please note this feature will only work with whatever phone numbers we have on file for you at the bank. Please sign into online banking now and go to the Preferences tab to update your personal information.
  • Finally, you will be required to change your current password to a new password that follows the guidelines of the new password security requirements. The new password must be at least 8 characters long.  Those 8 characters are required to be:
      • 1 Numeric Character
      • 1 special character (i.e. !@#$%^&*,.<>)
      • 6 alpha characters of which 1 must be uppercase and 1 must be lower case. 

** You may not use any of the previous 6 passwords you have used.

If you have questions or problems, feel free to contact us at 815-321-5000.

Please see the additional attachment for screen by screen example of the authentication process.
