What type of security is used?
A three-tiered security policy governs all aspects of this service. Each tier governs a unique aspect of your sessions and transactions with the credit union. These policies form a rigid security implementation that enables members to conduct business with the credit union via the Internet with an extremely high degree of security.
Can anyone from the "outside" access the credit union's database?
No. All requests for data must pass through two distinct validation and control centers. online banking logs each request and answer at each stop through the firewall.
What is encryption?
Encryption takes meaningful text and numbers and scrambles them into numerical nonsense before transmitting them across the Internet. Complex mathematical formulas create a key that translates the nonsense back into meaningful data. Billions of potential keys exist. We use a different key for each online session with online banking. We establish the key when your computer makes the connection. Your next online session uses a completely different key!
What about my personal account?
Three-layers of additional security surround your personal account:
- 8-32 character password
- Multi-factor authentication (one-time passcode) or security questions
Both specific, individual codes access your account only. Additionally, the system will automatically lockout access after three unsuccessful attempts.

Due to legal requirements, we limit the ability to make certain types of payments. Payments to payees outside of the United States are prohibited and may not be issued under any circumstances. In addition, the following payments are discouraged, but may be scheduled at your own risk:
- tax payments to the Internal Revenue Service or any state or other government agency
- court-ordered payments, such as alimony or child support
- payments to insurance companies
We will not notify you if you attempt to make any of these payments and we will not be liable if we do not make a prohibited or discouraged payment that you've scheduled.
How are payments processed?
We issue two kinds of payments, electronic and check:
- When scheduling a payment to a payee that we pay electronically, please select a send date that is at least 3 days in advance to the due date
- When scheduling a payment to a payee that we pay by check, please select a send date that is at least 5 days in advance to the due date
What is an eBill?
Simply put, an eBill is an electronic copy of your paper bill that you can view anytime from within the Bill Pay service. eBills are a secure and convenient way to keep all of your bills in one place. We’ll let you know when your bill arrives, and we will help you keep track of when it is due so you never have a late payment.
**Convenience fees apply to the Expedited Bill Payment feature. Overnight checks are unavailable for delivery to PO Box addresses or locations in Alaska, Hawaii or any foreign or US territory outside of the contiguous 48 states and District of Columbia.
