Changes to Online Banking - 2015

What do I have to do to access Online Banking?

You will need to re-register by clicking on the New User Setup button as a first time user and create a username and strong password. After your new username and password are created, you will no longer need to login with your member number and PIN.

What if I forgot my username for online banking?

Call us at 888-769-8841 and we can assist you with your username.

Why does the system keep telling me that "The Username you have selected is already in use. Please choose another."? I haven't re-registered yet.

One of our members has already used that particular Username. With our enhanced security, no username can be duplicated.

What is the criteria for creating a new Username?

Usernames must be at least 8 characters, including letters (upper and/or lower), and can also include numbers.

What if I forgot my password for online banking?

Click on 'forgot my password' and follow the instructions.

This feature is currently not available for mobile online banking (for security purposes). It is only available on our full browser version (campusfederal.org) of online banking.

Why do I keep receiving an red Invalid error when trying to set my Password? I have tried several different letters, number and symbols, but nothing works.

The Invalid error will continue to display until you have finished creating your Password. Just continue to type what you would like as your Password, and it will turn into the green Valid message.

What is the criteria for the Password?

Passwords must be between 8-16 characters in length including letters (1 upper or 1 lower) and a number.

How do I change my PIN?

Call us at 888-769-8841 and we can assist you with changing your PIN.

What do I do if I forgot the answers to my security questions?

Use the bypass code option ("Forgot Your Answer") on the Security Question page.

Can I use the security questions that I previously had?

Yes, the same questions and answers can be used as before.

When I try to login, why do I keep receiving a question that isn't mine?

Have you re-registered in our new system, creating a new username and password? If not, click New User Setup and follow the steps of the re-registration process. With the new system, you can no longer use your member number. Be sure you are using your new username.

Why do I see so many accounts? I don't want to see all of these accounts.

With our updated system, you will be able to view all accounts you have access to with one login. If you wish to not see some of these accounts, we have a "show/hide feature" under the "Options" tab which will allow you to hide the accounts you don't wish to see.

On the Pending Transactions page there are two dates, effective date and entry date. What are they referring to?

The effective date, in this instance, is the date the transaction was performed. The entry date is the date the authorization was added to the system.

Why are all of my scheduled bill payments and/or transfers gone?

Scheduled bill payments and transfers will only show under the primary account holder's login.

Why are my bill payments/scheduled payments being sent out twice? What do I do?

Check and see if the payments are set up under both the primary and joint member login. If the payments are set up under both then the payments will go out twice. Simply remove the scheduled payments on one of the logins. If you need further assistance, call us at 888-769-8841.

Why do I receive "Undefined" when I try to create bill payments on my mobile device?

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the Bill Payments Payees List page
  • Click "Add Payments"
  • Click any Payee to set up a payment
  • The Payee will expand to complete the payment

What do I need to do if I use financial management systems, such as Quicken, Quickbooks, Mint, or other financial managers (FinanceWorks, MoneyDesktop, other financial institutions' online banking systems)?

Financial management systems, such as Quicken, Quickbooks, Mint and other personal financial management systems will be temporarily unavailable.

If I manage a club account, will I need to complete the New User Setup using my social security number?

No, you will need to login using the TIN for the club.

I was able to setup my username and password but now when I try to login, I receive a message stating that the server has logged you off.

Click on New User Setup > Personal > Go Back > Login. Once you login for this page, you should no longer receive this message.

I converted to a username and password, why am I now getting some of my old questions?

Since we converted from membership to individual based login, we converted over all of the data. This includes the questions and answers. If you do not wish to see the old questions anymore, you can change them under Options > Security Settings inside of Online Banking.

When going through the user setup, after I input a valid username and password, I receive a an error message in red text.

Go back to campusfederal.org and attempt to log into online banking with the credentials you just setup.

Business Questions

Why do I keep getting an error when I try to re-register my business?

Detailed instructions are available on the Business Setup Instructions page.

Why can't I see any of my accounts now that I've successfully logged into Business Online Banking?

Your username may not have the correct roles for your accounts. You can select the roles by clicking on Options > User Administration, and clicking the "Edit Roles" button for each Username. More instructions are available to choose roles and accounts for a username on the Business Setup Instructions page.

For Business Online banking can you set up multiple Business Admin

Unfortunately, at this time you can only have one Admin.

I tried to make a purchase with my debit card for several
hundred dollars and I used my pin number. Why was my purchase declined?

Your daily limit for (POS) Point of Sale transactions can range from $100.00-$1,000.00.

  • Lagniappe CheckingSM $500.00
  • Young Adult CheckingSM $300.00

How can I activate my MasterCard overseas?

Here are a few examples: US toll free number 1 800 000 0000 would be dialed from the UK by adding 00 to it: 00 1 800 000 0000;

Another way to dial North American toll free numbers from abroad is to replace the toll free "area codes" with other codes introduced years ago:

* 880 replaces 800 - so the example UK to US call above would become: 00 1 880 000 0000;
* 881 replaces 888 - again, the example US to Canada call above would be: 1 881 000 0000;
* 882 replaces 877;
* 883 replaces 866.

When I receive a call from Campus Federal, why does "Unknown" display on my phone, instead of the phone number?

Some of the newer model phones are using High Definition (HD) over your phone carrier's LTE network. This provides a better quality calling experience than the standard method used for phone calls. However, the phone carriers have not converted all landlines to carry the phone number through the LTE network, causing an "Unknown" message to display, rather than an actual phone number.
