You don’t need to use your login, and it’s just as secure as our other services.

To enroll in Text Banking:

  • Login to online banking and click on your Profile.
  • Scroll down to the Mobile Banking section, then click on Manage devices
  • Click “Add New Device”
  • Under the Other Services section, input your cell phone number and click Continue

If you have Text Banking enabled on your mobile phone but are not receiving text messages, your mobile service carrier may be blocking short codes or you may have blocked short codes in your phone options. You must have short codes enabled to use Text Banking. (Short codes are abbreviated phone numbers, usually five digits; we use to send Text Banking messages.) Check your phone options and then contact your mobile service carrier to ensure they aren't blocking short codes.

 

Telephone Banking

Activation is easy! Complete the Telephone Bank Activation to start today:

  • Have your account number and the Social Security Number of the PRIMARY account owner before you call.
