Tips for First-Time Users
The first time you log in to your accounts in online banking, you’ll need to enter your account number and temporary password. The temporary password is the last four digits of the primary’s Social Security number and the four digit birth year of the primary member. You’ll be required to change that to a permanent password and also set up a user name to be used in place of your member number in order to finish logging in the first time.
- To keep your accounts secure, choose a password that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess.
- Don’t use a birthdate, or a child’s or pet’s name. Instead, use a combination of letters and numbers, or add symbols, or use combination of uppercase and lowercase letters to make it more difficult for someone to guess.
- Never write down your password or share it with others!
- Look for other tips on choosing a secure password when you log in for the first time.
After you log in, you’ll be asked to provide answers to three security questions that you get to choose. If you forget your password later, you’ll just need to anwser these questions and online banking will help you set up a different password and get logged in.
