Nickname Your Accounts:

If you haven’t nicknamed your accounts yet, your account probably shows up looking generic, like "REGULAR SHARE-01". If you have multiple savings accounts or car loans, or are connected to other member accounts (like your kids) this can quickly get confusing, plus it’s just kind of boring to look at. So have some fun with your accounts and give them a nickname! Here’s how:

Step 1: Go to “Settings”
Step 2: Click on “Accounts”
Step 3: Click on the account you want to nickname
Step 4: Name the account something meaningful to you, like “My Super Awesome Savings”
Step 5: Click “Save”

Giving your accounts a nickname is a quick and easy way to personalize your Online Banking experience. Plus, you can change the name at any time!
