Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions you may ask about eServices:

Can I change my Login ID?

Yes. Once you are enrolled and logged into your account, you can change the log in or password using the menu on the left side, scrolling down to Preferences and then clicking Security.

How do I change my password if I forgot it?

You can change your forgotten password by clicking on the “Forgot Password?” link on the initial login screen.

My browser saves my User ID and Password. I changed my password yesterday, and today it does not work?

If you change your online banking password, you will need to erase the old password when your browser pre-fills it and then type in your new password. Once you do this, your browser should display a prompt, allowing you to choose if you want the browser to remember this new password.

How long can I be logged into my account before it times out?

  • 15 minutes with no activity
  • Maximum of 60 minutes with activity (mouse clicking)

How long can I go without logging into my account is locked?

If there are no logins for a period of 90 days, the account will be locked.

Why did First Californian change online banking?

The upgrade was made to provide better account security and features that were not available in the old First Californian/Credit Union One websites. The added features include:

  • Secure Messaging: send a question securely to the credit union, if needed, about a specific transaction
  • Enhanced Mobile and Text Banking
  • Alerts: Set up balance or other transaction alerts that are received via email, phone, or SMS (text message).
  • Personalize your online banking experience.

How can I change the account/amount/date on a recurring transfer?

Go to the “Online Activity” option in the toolbar, highlight the transaction and select the “Cancel” option in the menu just above it. A recurring transfer may only be added or cancelled, not edited.

How do I cancel a transaction I created?

Go to the “Online Activity” option in the toolbar to the left of your account information. Once in “Online Activity,” highlight the transaction you wish to cancel and select the “Cancel” option in the menu above it.

How do I get transactions into Quicken/QuickBooks? Why is it not working anymore?

Once you are logged into your account, go to the “History” option in the toolbar. You will then see a dropdown button that says, “Display . . .” Select that dropdown and pick “Export to File.” Next, in the dropdown just to the right, select your appropriate choice. If you were already a user of Quicken/QuickBooks before our conversion, you will need to perform an update in your Quicken/QuickBooks product. You can find step-by-step instructions there.

I keyed in a transfer a week ago and it never hit my account. What happened?

You may have created a draft of your transfer and may not have approved it. To do so, go to the “Online Activity” option. From here you may approve any pending transactions.

I was using Money Desktop with the old system. Will it work with the new system?

Yes. If you had entered your internal and external accounts on the previous system, the information should have transferred over to the new system.

How quickly are transactions posted with online banking?

Online banking transactions occur instantly in “real time” during our normal operating hours. Outside our normal operating hours, your transactions will affect your available balance but the transaction history will not show until the next business day.
