Here are some frequently asked questions provided by our members that you may have yourself:

Q.  How do I log into Online Banking if I forget my password?

A.  Enter your User ID and then click on the “Forgot Password” box and click Log In. This will allow you to change your password by following the security prompts.

Q.  Why am I locked out of Online Banking?

A.  After (3) unsuccessful login attempts, the system automatically locks the account. The member cannot unlock themselves and must contact First Financial (866.750.0100) or the 24/7 member support line (866.820.2870) to have the account unlocked.

Q.  What is a “Secure Access Code” and why do I need it?

A.  A “Secure Access Code” is a six digit code that is requested by the user to be delivered to their secure point of contact when they forget their password or wish to change. A “Secure Access Code” is also required with their “First Time” log in and when they register their computer.

HINT:  A “Secure Access Code” is only valid for 10 minutes. If it is not used during this time, it will expire and new one will need to be requested.

Q. I would like to change my User ID.  How do I do this?

A.  Log into Online Banking.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and under the “Preferences” tab, click on the “Security” link and click on the “Login ID” tab.  Enter your new login ID and submit your change.

Q.  I have more than one account with the Credit Union, how do I link them together?

A.  When logged into Online Banking you may click on the “Add/Remove Account Request” link which is located under the “Services” tab.

Q.  Why didn’t my online transfer get processed?

A.  The transaction was probably never approved and is sitting in “Draft Status.”  When a transfer is done by using the “Funds Transfer” link under the “Transaction” heading, the member must “Approve” the transfer or it will not be processed.

Q. What if I need assistance with Bill Pay after hours?

A. For 24/7 toll free Bill Pay Assistance, call 866.837.8930.
