BUILDING THE FUTURE NOW...FASTER! SECURE! INTUITIVE!
CONVERTING TO A NEW CORE BANKING SYSTEM
We are excited to announce that we are converting to a new core banking system – the software and database that we use to conduct transactions and maintain member information. The new system will allow us to process transactions faster, provide enhanced security, and deliver a better member experience.
The migration to the new system will begin at 6:00pm on Thursday, September 30th, and should be completed by the morning of Monday, October 4th. During that time, members will have limited and intermittent access to their accounts.
While the planning and implementation of this core banking conversion will happen behind the scenes, some of the services you use may be affected, specifically on the days mentioned above.
We will update this webpage throughout the process to keep you up to date on when and what will be affected, so that you will be prepared.
We look forward to the new changes, and we hope you do too!
