  • A more personalized experience - arrange your Dashboard in a way that makes the most sense to you.

Enhanced Security

  • Transaction alerts - near real-time transaction alerts delivered to your mobile device
  • Touch and Face ID for enabled devices
  • Two-Factor Authentication - which is a fancy way of saying that a code will be delivered to you outside of the system to verify your identity. Check out the Quick Start Guide below for more information.
  • Enhanced card controls: misplaced your debit card? You will now be able to temporarily disable your card while you look, and turn it back on once you find it. You can also report the card lost or stolen.

You’ll also be able to:

  • View check images, eStatements and add external transfers, all from your mobile device
  • Connect accounts at other financial institutions*
  • Add multiple profiles- access multiple online banking profiles from any device


  1. Visit the homepage of our website to sign in from a computer, or visit the App Store or Google Play and download our new green mobile banking app.
  2. Enter the Username that you established for your Internet Banking account in our previous system in the Username field.
  3. In the Password field, enter the temporary password that was provided to you by standard mail. You should have received a mailing during the first week of May that included a Quick Start guide with password instructions.
  4. Establish a new password: the screen will indicate that your password has expired and must be changed. Follow the prompts to establish a password for the new system. Please note: Not all special characters are acceptable. Click “Show Rules” when you re-establish your password to ensure the password you choose will be accepted.
  5. Establish Two Factor Authentication: A code will be delivered by text or call to a phone number you provide. Ensure that you have access to this phone while you are completing this process. You may also use the Authy app on a PC. This code may not be delivered to an email address.

 Great news: You only need to complete this process once to register for access from both a computer and a mobile device!
