Upgrade-Related FAQs

  • + Will the upgraded Online Banking platform work with my third-party personal finance manager?

    We are currently working with Intuit to support the integration of our upgraded Online Banking tools and features with Mint, Quickbooks, and Quicken.

    We are aware that some account information is not yet syncing properly. If you have trouble syncing your account with your third-party personal finance manager, please contact your personal finance manager for further troubleshooting:

    Furthermore, we will continue to work with other personal finance managers to resolve syncing issues as quickly as possible. We will update these FAQs as more information is available.

  • + Why do you have so many requirements for my password?

    Your financial security is of utmost importance to us. The requirements for your password are designed to protect you against unauthorized and fraudulent access to your accounts. Our goal is to ensure that you create a password that will not easily be guessed or "brute-forced" with special software.

    Beyond creating a password that meets our standards, we have several practices we encourage you to follow:

    • Keep your password private. If another party obtains your password, remember they can perform the same transactions you can.
    • Use only known, secure systems and secure Internet connections. Avoid shared, publically accessible systems and public WiFi when accessing Online Banking.
    • Use a unique password. Specifically, do not use the same password for multiple websites. Hackers commonly use breached password lists to gain access to websites.
    • Use a combination of numbers, symbols, punctuation, and upper and lower case alphabetic characters. For example, do not use a word directly from the dictionary without adding additional characters. And do not choose words that use simple substitutions of numbers for letters. For example, Cowboys01 and p@$$w0rd might meet many password complexity requirements, but would not be a strong password. Hackers are aware of these substitution tricks and can easily use software to identify these predictable substitutions and character patterns to guess your password. Moreover, hackers and fraudsters use commonly available lists of millions of breached passwords to guess or "brute-force" passwords.
    • Consider using a secure password manager.
  • + Do you recommend enabling pop-ups?

    There are some features of Online Banking that require pop-ups to be enabled, including access to some linked pages, and viewing or printing some eDocuments, such as eStatements.

    If you do not want to allow pop-ups for all websites, you may add the following sites to your list of Allowed sites via your browser settings:

    • https://memberidentity.ufcu.org/
    • https://my.ufcu.org/

    To view pop-ups successfully, you must also enable pop-ups on any installed browser toolbars.

  • + Why can’t I enroll or log in to Online Banking?

    Online Banking might be experiencing intermittent issues. If you cannot access Online Banking, you may access your accounts through one of our alternative channels:

  • + What is a temporary security code? When will I need one?

    Security codes are an extra layer of protection for Members. You might be given a temporary security code and asked to report it back to us any time we deem it appropriate to verify your identity for your security. Some common examples include enrolling in Online Banking, logging in from a new or previously unused computer or device, and resetting your password. To make this process as convenient as possible, you may choose to have your code delivered via text message or email.

  • + Why am I asked for a temporary security code every time I log in?

    For your security, Online Banking requires you to obtain a new security code from unrecognized devices. To bypass this requirement, you can select "Remember this Computer" during the log-in process.

  • + Can I use my temporary security code more than once?

    No. Your temporary security code grants one-time access only.

  • + How long is my temporary security code valid?

    Your temporary security code expires after 4 hours. So you must proceed with the process within 4 hours, or you will need to request a new code.

  • + What if I do not receive my temporary security code?

    If you do not promptly receive a temporary security code, verify your contact information and request another security code. If the problem continues, please contact us immediately.

  • + Where will a text-messaged temporary security code come from?

    If you choose to receive your temporary security code via text message, the message will be delivered from a 512 area code.

  • + Where will an emailed temporary security code come from?

    If you choose to receive your temporary security code via email, the message will come from info@ufcu.org.

  • + What does it mean to “remember this computer?" Should I select this option?

    You might choose to “remember this computer” when you are using a private computer in a secure area. Selecting this option means that the next time you log in from the same computer or device, you will be able to proceed without any additional steps. If you do not “remember this computer,” you will be required to verify your identity using a temporary security code each time you log in from the same computer or device.

  • + What security safeguards are in place to protect financial information/transactions? Are transactions encrypted? If so, what level of encryption are you using?

    For security, only the last three digits of your account number are displayed within Online Banking.

    SSL Encryption is active on the Web Server, which currently allows and supports 128-bit encryption. Your browser will display a lock or unbroken key, indicating that you have reached the secure area. For added security, UFCU will only support 128-bit SSL encryption. Please update your browser to 128-bit encryption.

    *Note: For additional information regarding security, or to view security certificate information for UFCU's Online Banking servers, click the Security button or Security folder in your browser while logged in to Online Banking.

  • + How long can I stay logged into my account via Online Banking?

    To ensure your security, you will be logged out of each Online Banking session after 15 minutes of inactivity. You will be presented with an option to continue your session 90 seconds prior to being logged out.

  • + What is Google Authenticator?

    Google Authenticator generates two-step verification codes on your phone. If enabled, in addition to your password, you’ll also need a code generated by the Google Authenticator app on your phone to log in to Online Banking. Visit the app store from your mobile device to learn more about Google Authenticator.

Transfers to Non-UFCU Accounts

  • + Can I transfer money to or from my accounts at other financial institutions?

    Yes. You have the ability to transfer funds to and from your accounts at other financial institutions through UFCU Online Banking. Select Transfers » To/From Other Institutions. You will need to know the other institution's routing number along with your account number.

  • + What is the maximum amount I can transfer to or from my accounts at other financial institutions?

    The maximum amount that can be transferred to or from Non-UFCU Accounts is $10,000.

  • + What is the account verification process to set up another financial institution for transfers?

    Before you can schedule transfers to a newly setup Financial Institution, you must verify that you have access to the destination account by providing us with identification data.

    The identification data consists of deposit and withdrawal transfers originated by the system for a random amount (less than $1.00). These identification transactions will be generated on our next processing date.

    After these verification transactions are posted at the receiving financial institution, select Transfers » To/From Other Institutions. Then select Manage Accounts to verify the payee by entering the transaction amount. Once verified, you may begin using this new financial institution. The financial institution will be removed from the system if it is not verified within 45 days.

  • + What is the processing schedule for the account verification process?

    Requests and Transfers are processed Sunday — Thursday at 7 PM (excluding federal bank holidays).

  • + What is the account verification status?

    In Process — The identification transactions have not been generated.

    Verify — The verification system has generated the identification transactions. You can click Verify after the receiving institution has posted the verification deposit and withdrawal amount.

    Locked — You reached the maximum number of invalid verification attempts. Once it has been removed, you'll be able to add the setup again to restart the verification cycle. You can send a secure email by selecting eMailBox within Online Banking or Contact Us for further assistance.
