Online Banking FAQ

What is the New Consumer Home Page?

The New Consumer Home Page helps you do your everyday money management tasks quickly and easily all in one place. In fact, we've brought together the tools needed to perform your most common daily tasks without ever leaving the page. You can easily:

  • Check all of your account balances at once
  • Take a quick peek at your most recent transactions
  • Make a one-time transfer between your accounts
  • Make a loan payment within My Accounts
  • Schedule a one-time bill payment

So instead of switching between Account Summary, Account History, Bill Pay, Transfer Funds and other pages, you can take action right there on one page to complete several basic functions. We hope you will think of it as your money management control panel.


NOTE: If you do not have any accounts set up in online banking yet, the page will just display the message, "You do not currently have any accounts."



What's on the New Consumer Home Page?

The New Consumer Home Page contains task-specific areas that are usually found individually on several different pages within Internet Banking: Account Summary, Account History, Bill Pay and Transfer Funds. NOTE: If you do not have any accounts set up in online banking yet, the page will just display the message, "You do not currently have any accounts."


My Accounts

This is where you can see all of your accounts and balances in a glance without having to scroll. In the upper-right portion of My Accounts you will find the Make a transfer icon and link that enables you to make a one-time funds transfer between your accounts and much more. To view the most recent activity for any account, click the Quick Peek link. Clicking Quick Peek opens a new window that shows the most recent transactions or payment activity for the account along with links to Make a Transfer and Go to account history.


MyAccounts


Make a transfer

Just select the Make a transfer button to make a one-time transfer between your accounts. You may also be able to transfer funds to make a loan payment, if that option is available. If there are any restrictions on the number of transfers allowed per month or any transfer fees applied, it will be indicated in a message displayed below the To or From field (or both).


Selecting the Make a transfer button opens the Move Money window above the My Accounts list. Just enter the amount, select the transfer To and From accounts, then click the Transfer button and confirm the transfer details and you're done. Transactions now post quickly when you complete a transfer. This means that we will automatically refresh the page (to get the new account balances) when you close the transfers success window.


NOTE: If you are making a loan payment, additional fields may be available to enter the required information. Click here to learn more about making a loan payment. If available, additional transfer options may be found within the main Internet Banking pages.

How can I get to other pages in Internet Banking from the New Home Page?

You can use your standard menu and submenu selections to navigate around Internet Banking like you do now. However, each section of the New Consumer Home Page has a link that will take you to other pages within Internet Banking that may help you do things that are not currently available on the new page.


In the My Accounts section you will find a Quick Peek link to the right of each account name. Clicking the link opens a new window listing the most recent transactions. At the bottom of the window you will find a Go to account history link, which, when selected opens the New Account History Page for that account.

Can I copy and paste transactions into a spreadsheet?

Yes you can copy data from the transaction list and paste it into standard spreadsheets like Excel. Just highlight and copy the data you want (e.g., date, description or amount) from Quick Peek and paste it into a row of the spreadsheet.



Can I do a browser search on the Home Page?

Yes, you can use Control + F to do a simple browser search for an amount, date, payee name, etc. within Quick Peek. For example, just open the browser search field (Ctl F) enter the payee name and click the Next button.



Which browsers can I use to view the Account History Page?

Browsers that are officially certified include Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8.0+ as well as Firefox 4.0+. Browsers that are supported but not certified include IE 9.0+, Safari 5.0+ and Google Chrome. If you are using one of these or any other browsers and experience a problem, please use the Make a suggestion link at the top or bottom of the page and let us know.


You may notice an announcement just below the top menu that encourages you to upgrade to the latest browser. Doing so will enhance the speed and functionality of the online banking pages.



Why do I have to keep entering a verification code to log in?

This appears to be an issue with Internet Explorer (IE) 9.0+ automatically deleting your cookies every time you shut down your computer. That's why you are not recognized the next time you try to log in to online banking and you have to enter the verification code again. To fix this just follow the steps below.


  • Within IE 9.0+, click the Tools icon on the upper right side (looks like a gear wheel).
  • Select Internet Options from the dropdown list.
  • In the Browsing history section, uncheck the 'Delete browsing history on exit' checkbox.
  • Click the Privacy tab.
  • Click the "Advanced" button.
  • Select the "Override Automatic Cookie Handling" checkbox.
  • Select 'First-party Cookies' and 'Third-party Cookies' radio buttons, if needed.
  • Select the "Always Allow Session Cookies" checkbox.
  • Click the OK button.



Where can I check my account balances?

The My Accounts section in the upper left area has all of your accounts categorized by type (Deposit, Savings, Loans, etc.) with the current balance and available balance for each account. Within each category group the accounts are listed in alphabetical order by name – either the original account name or the account nickname that you assigned.


Your first Deposit account is displayed at the top of the list and shows the balance and available balance. The Total Accounts value is displayed at the bottom of each account section.

Where can I find when my CD matures?

If available with your online services, you will be able to see the maturity date of your CD in the account bar without having to access the account details. If the maturity date is available, it is displayed as "Matures on MM/DD/YYYY."



Where can I find my transactions?

Clicking Quick Peek opens a new window that shows the balance and available balance along with the most recent transactions or payment activity for that account. High transaction volume accounts (like Checking) will show 5 days of account activity. Low volume accounts (like loans) will show 30 days of account activity. You will also find helpful links to Make a Transfer and Go to account history at the bottom of the window.


Just click the X button on the top right or anywhere outside of the window to close it. Clicking the account name or the Go to account history link opens the Account History Page for that account.


myAccounts


For all loan accounts you will see the balance, next payment amount, a Pay now link (to make the loan payment), interest paid for the current and previous years, recent payments made, and a link to the account history page.

If you are not yet set up for bill pay, the Make a Payment task area will display a message encouraging you to start paying your bills online. Clicking the Go to Payments link will take you to the Bill Pay start page.



Why did I get a payment reminder for a bill I already paid using Make a Payment?

We are experiencing a temporary communication issue with the main Bill Payment system meaning it does not recognize payments made through Make a Payment on the Home Page.

The account names or nicknames within a category appear in alphabetical order, so you can change the account nicknames so the accounts display in the order you want, e.g., My Savings Account will display before zAdvantage Savings Acct because of the added 'z' (click here to see how to change an account nickname).
