Using our New Audio Banking System
Our new audio banking system will allow you to check your balances, transfer money, request a check, or request a stop pay. To use audio banking, you will need to first set up a PIN in the new system. Begin by dialing 815-510-2494.
To complete the set-up, you will need
*Your account number
*Last 4 digits of your social security number
*Date of birth
*A new 4 digit PIN
This information will only need to be entered one time. Any time you use audio banking after that, the system will only ask for the account number, last 4 of your social security number, and your PIN.
Once you complete the set-up, you will be able to choose from a list of prompts to complete your audio banking needs. After selecting a transaction prompt, the system will ask you for the “Account ID” from which you are wanting to complete the transaction. Our new system assigns each savings, checking, or loan in your account with an account ID.
Unsure of which account ID you should choose? You can select the # sign to get a list of account ID’s and the balance related to that account. The list consists of all accounts related to the type of account you are searching for (example savings account) that you are owner or joint owner of. Once you hear the correct account ID simply hit # again and the system will take you back to the transaction menu.
If you have any issues with using the audio banking, need assistance, or want to report an error, please call our Member Services Contact Center at 800-595-2454.
Will Deposits be Affected on Friday, March 30th?
All ACH deposits/withdrawals will be posted on Friday before 2pm CST. Any RDC or other types of deposits will also be deposited if received before 2pm CST. Any night drops received on Friday after 7am will be processed Monday, April 2nd.
