Is there a time limit for an Online banking session?
If you are inactive for ten minutes or more, the system will automatically log you out. You can change the timeout period to 20, 30, or 40 minutes through the User Options tab. A lower number offers more security while higher numbers offer more convenience.
I can't access the login screen. Why?
An inability to access a login screen could be the result of not having the correct version of a browser. We recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8.0 and above, Mozilla Firefox 4.0 and above, Safari 6, or Chrome. If you do not have the latest version of this browser, you can go to the homepage and download the latest version free of charge.
