Online Application: If you fill out an online application, you will be revealing information needed to process your request.

Online Banking: Our Online Banking service has security features built-in to ensure your information remains confidential.
- Your information is protected by SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology - the highest level of Internet security available.
- Passwords are known only to the user. No one at Neighbors Credit Union will ever need to know your password, and you should never provide it to anyone.
- Time-out feature will automatically log you out of the system after 10 minutes of inactivity. When you've finished your session, be sure to log out by choosing the "Logout" button.
- You are allowed five attempts to enter your Personal ID and Password correctly on the log in page. If you are unsuccessful, you may use the “Forgot Password” link to retrieve/reset your login credentials or contact us for assistance.
- You can send us a secured email within the online banking system by clicking on “Support.”
- You have the option of changing your unique user name and password as often as you want by click on “My Settings.”
- Your member number never appears on screen.
Passwords: You should never share your passwords or write them down in an easily accessible place. If a malicious person has your password, they can gain access to your financial information and make unauthorized changes. If you think someone else may have access to your password, contact us immediately.
- Use different passwords for different for different systems, such as one for purchases, one for email, and one for each sensitive site, such as Online Banking. Having different passwords limits the damage a malicious person can do should a password fall into the wrong hands.
- Use strong passwords by avoiding recognizable words and meaningful numbers, such as your address or phone number. Choose a string of at least eight letters, numbers, and symbols. One easy way to create a memorable password is to take the first letter of each word in an expression or song lyric, and add a number and punctuation mark. For example, "tmottobg!5" is derived from "Take Me Out To The Old Ball Game."
- Change your passwords often.
- Try to memorize your passwords, but if you must write them down, don’t keep them near your computer or where someone could see them. Also, reverse the order of the characters or transpose some letters or numbers so that if someone does find your password, they won't have discovered your true password.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires Neighbors Credit Union to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means to you: When you open an account or loan, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
