Online Banking and PopMoney – Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I am trying to sign onto the new Online Banking system for the first time using a mobile device, such as my iPad or Smart phone, and I can’t get in, what do I need to do?
A. The first time you log into the New Online Banking system you must sign on from a computer, not a mobile device. You will need to sign up for Mobile and register your devices. If you do not have access to a computer, please visit an IH Credit Union branch, where you may use our computer for your initial access.
Q. When enrolling for the first time, why do I have to set-up a phone call or text message to get a verification PIN alert?
A. The system is set up with additional layers of security to protect your accounts and validate that it is really you trying to access your accounts. You must establish these when you sign on as part of your enrollment. These are part of Intelligent Authentication and out-of-band authentication and are designed to protect you and your assets. If you need assistance in setting this up, please contact us at a branch or call (937) 390-1800.
Q: What is out-of-band (OOB) authentication?
A: Out-of-band authentication is a type of two-factor authentication that requires a secondary verification method. This typically occurs when the credit union sends the member a text message with a code and requires the member to utilize that code to complete verification of the transaction.
Q: How many different phone numbers can I enroll in Online Banking for out-of-band authentication?
A: You can enroll up to 5 phone numbers, each with its own challenge delivery method: either voice phone call or text message. Remember to add phones that you will be able to answer or receive a text. You can make changes to your devices under the Mobile tab in Online Banking.
Q: Is out-of-band authentication (via phone call or text message) optional, or is it enforced for all members?
A: For security purposes, the credit union will require either out-of-band authentication or require the member to correctly answer security questions.
Q: Can landlines be used for out-of-band authentication?
A: Yes, both landlines and mobile phones can be used for receiving automated telephone calls delivering the one-time passcode/PIN. If you are using a landline, it must be one that is answered by you, so you can receive the 4 digit PIN. If you are using cell phone you must answer or be able to receive a text. Text message charges may apply depending on your plan.
Q: If I regularly accesses online banking from different computers – work, home, etc. – will an out-of-band authentication prompt appear each time I login from one of these computers?
A: Initially, you will receive out-of-band authentication challenge prompts whenever you log in from a new computer or device. Once the log in and device pattern is established, you will not be challenged. Intelligent Authentication challenges members based on changes to the member’s normal usage pattern. members will be challenged when a change is detected, but as soon as the new device, location or behavior becomes the norm they will no longer be challenged.
Q. I am missing accounts in my profile. What should I do?
A. Please contact our Member Services representatives at (937) 390-1800 for assistance.
Q. Are there fees that apply to my Online Banking?
A. Online Banking and standard Bill Pay remain available at no charge to members. If you choose to do an expedited payment or other service, such as Popmoney or External Transfer, fees will apply. The system prompts you prior to doing the transaction that a fee will apply.
Q. Only the last five digits of my billing account number are viewable. Will my payees be able to process the payments?
A. Yes. For security reasons, only the last five digits of the account number are displayed. The payees will receive the entire account number to process your payment correctly. If you are uncertain that these digits are the last five of your account number, you can always update the payee and enter the entire account number. It will revert back to only show you the last five digits, but with this step you will be certain that the full number was entered.
Q. I have more Bill Payees than I remember, why is this?
A. All Bill Payees, even those you suppressed (hid) were converted over. If you no longer use these Bill Payees, you can delete them.
Q. Why are transactions not being deducted from my balance when they are sent to a payee?
A. Bill Pay deducts payments from your account on the date the payment is scheduled to arrive at the payee, not when it is sent to the payee. Your payment will arrive at the payee on the ‘scheduled’ date and be deducted from your account on that day.
Q. How do I confirm if a payment is electronic or check?
A. When you enter a payment amount and either accept the earliest date provided or select a later date, the next window will either include “memo” and a box to type in or not. If this box is presented, the payment will be made by check. If this box is not presented, the payment will be electronic.
Q. Why are my payees’ nicknames/alias not showing up?
A. Nicknames/aliases were not able to be transferred over to the new system. You will need to enter any account nicknames to your payees’ information.
Q. How can I confirm when a payment will arrive at a payee?
A. In the new system, the scheduled date is the date it will arrive at the payee. When you initiate a bill payment, the earliest date it could arrive at the payee is displayed. You can adjust that date further out if you wish.
Q. Why isn’t my payment reflecting the payment default date as the next business day?
A. Payments are now scheduled based on when they arrive at the payee, not when they are sent. So, the default date that is displayed is the earliest it can arrive at the payee. You can adjust that date further out, but not closer as it is already set to earliest arrival date.
Q. Where can I see my previous payments?
A. All payments made on or before October 18, 2016 will appear under Transaction History Details. All payments made on or after October 18, 2016 will appear under Bill History in Pay Bills.
Q. Where are external transfers?
A. In the new system, members can access External Transfers in the “Transfers” tab, by selecting “External Account Transfer” under Services.
Q. Can I export transactions to Quicken?
A. You can export transactions from Personal Online Banking to Quicken in QFX format or to QuickBooks in QBO format. Other available formats include a CSV file and OFX format to export to Excel or Microsoft Money.
Q. Where can I go for additional instructions on using my new online services, including Bill Pay and Popmoney?
