Information for First-Time Users
How Do I Register For Internet Banking?
You may request access to Internet Banking by contacting the credit union. You can apply over the phone or by using our simple online form for an access code including a reset of an existing user. Your access code will only be given to you over the phone and only once you have been appropriately identified.
You can review the conditions of use as part of our Product Disclosure Statement - Account and Access Facility.
Can I Change The Access Code?
Yes. The system will require you to change your password the first time you use Internet Banking. The Access Code must be a minimum of 4 characters and can be a combination of the numbers 0 - 9 and/or letters A – Z. Access codes are NOT case sensitive.
You can change your Access Code at any time and is recommended that you do so on a frequent basis for your own security. You can change your Access Code while logged into Internet Banking under “Membership Details”.
Please refer to our Product Disclosure Statement - Account and Access Facility for more information on security of your Access Code.
