What is happening?
We will be converting to new software for all our systems externally and internally. For you, this means new and improved online banking, mobile banking, bill pay, remote deposit capture, and audio teller. For us it means the system will be easier to use so that we can provide better support and new products and services for you and all of our members.
Why is the credit union changing systems?
We want to offer better service to you, our member-owners. Have you tried to sign into online banking or use bill pay lately?
Okay, but how will this system benefit ME?
The new system will provide enhanced and streamlined experience. Upgrades include:
- Improved Online & Mobile Banking and Bill Pay, including the ability to connect to your accounts at your billers like RGE and credit card companies.
- Spanish-language audio teller
- Accessibility to more countries during international travel
- Apple & Google Pay and tap-to-pay debit cards coming soon after the upgrade. Our old system did not have the necessary technology to allow these products

- You will now be able to see your last 18 months of online statements.
- Online banking will be available in Spanish as well as English.
