Tips to Prepare
As we prepare for our new system, our primary goal is to make this as easy as possible for our members. There are a few quick things you can do to prepare:
Online Banking Username
Change your username if you log into online banking using your member account number:
After the upgrade on October 10, if you log in with your member account number, you’ll be prompted to create a new username. This change applies an extra layer of security to help safeguard your accounts. If you haven’t changed your username by November 10, you must re-register for online banking. To avoid any delays, take a moment now to change your username; simply click “forgot username” from the online banking login screen and follow the prompts to change it.
Who does this affect?
Anyone who uses their member account number to log in.
Make sure your email address is up-to-date on our system:
- Log in to Online Banking and click the settings icon (top right gear icon), then under Contact Info you can make any necessary changes to your username, address, phone number, and/or email address.
- Call us at (503) 215-6090.
Who does this affect?
All members. Your current email address will allow us to send you updated and helpful information about our upcoming new digital banking platform.
EXTERNAL TRANSFERS (ACH)
From September 30, you won’t be able to add a new payee.
For 10 days prior to the upgrade, you will be unable to add a new ACH external transfer payee. This functionality will return on October 10.
Who does this affect?
Anyone who needs to add a new external transfer payee after September 30.
Changes for Quicken Users
You will need to take action both before and after the upgrade to ensure that your data transfers smoothly to the upgraded digital banking system.
Who does this affect?
Anyone who connects to PFCU using QuickBooks, Quicken, and other Intuit Programs.
