eStatements

An eStatement is an electronic version of your account statements viewable as a PDF through Online Banking. It is an alternative to paper statements sent through postal mail.

Log into Online Banking via a PC and select eStatements located along the left hand menu. Then select delivery preferences.

Nothing. It is a free service.

  • View and print account statements and notices online 24/7
  • Receive electronic versions up to a week faster than paper delivery
  • Get organized and say goodbye to filing and shredding
  • Reduce the risk of mail fraud and identity theft
  • Save paper, reduce waste, and shrink your carbon footprint

Log into Online Banking and click on the eStatement link.

You will receive an email letting you know that a new eStatement is available to view.

Yes, your personal and financial information is protected behind multiple layers of security.

We will discontinue your paper statements when you sign up for eStatements delivery. You can view, save and print your eStatements at any time, and they are legally the same as the paper version we mail to you.

Yes, your eStatement looks the same as your paper statement and is considered an official document.

Log in to Online Banking and click on the eStatement link. Then click on select delivery preferences at the top and choose “opt-out of eStatements.”

Check images are not available with eStatements, but are available within Online Banking.

You will find up to 2 years of eStatements. However, eStatements begin to accumulate the month following your enrollment.

You will begin to receive eStatements the month following your enrollment because eStatements are not produced for your account prior to your enrollment.

If you are enrolled in eStatements, your tax forms will also be available electronically, rather than through the mail.

General Questions

The easiest way to locate your account number is to look at your most recent Trailhead statement. Your account number is in the top right corner on the first page of the statement.

Logging In

You can access the new digital banking and your account on a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, or other internet-accessible device. Simply log in with your existing online banking credentials to both online and mobile banking. There are two access points:

  1. Visit our website and click Log In to get started
  2. Download the NEW mobile banking app from the Google Play or Apple Store

Note: You will not be able to access the website via old bookmarks or the previous mobile banking app.

Two-Factor Authentication is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to digital banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access.

No. Check the “Don’t ask for codes again on this computer” box if you do not want to receive a confirmation code or phone call each time you log in. If you prefer to input a confirmation code with each use, you can leave the box unchecked or use the 2-Factor Authentication app to deliver the code.

Note: If you ever want to remove a device and reset your security settings, you can change them in settings once logged in to digital banking.

Two-Factor authentication uses a unique one-time access code to verify identity and log on to digital banking. If you are unable to receive text (SMS) messages, you can choose to receive your access code via a phone call.

  • On the verification code screen click “Try another way” located beneath the Verify button
  • Select Phone Call and click Next
  • You will receive an automated phone call that will provide your access code (Have a pen and paper ready)
  • Return to the verification code screen
  • Enter your access code and click Verify

If you are still having trouble, contact the credit union to ensure we have the correct phone number on file.

You need to clear your cache in Chrome to remove all cookies. If you need further assistance, please contact us.

Miscellaneous Mobile Questions

Yes, you can!

You can customize a unique Dashboard set up for each of your devices. Changes to one device’s Dashboard layout will not affect the arrangement on other devices.

  • Tap the slideout menu and select Settings.
  • Tap Security in the menu.
  • Tap the toggle next to Touch ID.
  • Select Enable Touch ID.

The Apple mobile app requires a minimum version of iOS 11. The Android mobile app requires a minimum version of Android 5.0.

When you are using the mobile app, there is not a log out button to push. You can exit the app by going to a different app or your home screen. Each time you navigate away from the app, your active session is ended, which serves the function of a log out button. When you navigate back to the app, you will be asked to re-authenticate, and if you have quick access features such as FaceID, TouchID, or passcode log on, you can gain access quickly each time.

If you want to remove the connection between your device and your account altogether, you can go to the Menu > Settings > Remove Profile. This will remove all association between your account and the mobile device and app you are using. Each time you attempt to access the app after this, you will have to put in the full username, password, and 2-Factor authentication to authorize your account on that device.

  • Tap the slideout menu, and then select Settings.
  • On the Profile screen, select the pencil next to the end-user profile image.
  • Choose to use an existing photo or use the device’s camera to take a new photo.
  • On the Move and scale screen, adjust the photo placement within the frame as desired.
  • Select Done.

Mobile Banking is an app for Apple and Android devices  that allows you to access your accounts via your smart phone or tablet.

Download the Mobile Banking app from Google Play or the App Store. If you already have a username and password for Online Banking, you may log in with those credentials. If not, click “First time user? Enroll now.”

Mobile Deposit

All payees should sign the back of the check.

Remote Deposit is a simple way to use a mobile device to deposit checks into your account.

Remote Deposit is available through our Mobile Banking app. At this time, it is not available through Online Banking.

When endorsing your checks, please write “For Mobile Deposit Only at TCU” below your signature on the back of the check. Checks that do not include “For Mobile Deposit Only at TCU” may be rejected.

No. To be eligible, members must have:

  • Mobile Banking app
  • Membership for at least 30 days
  • Current email address in your profile
  • Be in good standing

Deposits that do not require review will show up in your account immediately.  You will receive an email notification if your remote deposit requires review by a Trailhead employee prior to receiving credit in your account. If you are not sure if it worked, please check your account transactions in mobile banking and your email (address that is on file with Trailhead) before trying again. The balance of the credit is subject to normal holds (like the ATM).  Pursuant to Reg CC,  not all check deposits will have an immediate availability and may be subject to up to a 10 day hold based on collectability as determined by Trailhead.

Unacceptable deposits include:

  • Any item that is stamped with a “non-negotiable” watermark
  • Any item that contains evidence of alteration to the information on the check
  • Any item issued by a financial institution in a foreign country
  • Any item that is incomplete
  • Any item that is “stale-dated” or “post dated” (typically 6 months unless otherwise indicated)
  • Savings Bonds
  • Any third party check, item made payable to someone other than yourself or other authorized signers on the account
  • Any item with a restrictive endorsement

The system may automatically reject checks for any of the following reasons:

  • The check image isn’t readable
  • The check is folded or torn
  • The check isn’t signed on the front or on the back
  • The check does not include the  “For Mobile Deposit Only at TCU” endorsement on the back
  • The check amount doesn’t match what the member entered
  • The check meets one of the definitions above as an item that can’t be deposited through mobile deposit.
  • The MICR number is altered or illegible

We recommend that you store your original check for 30 days (do NOT write “void” on it) and then destroy it to ensure it is not re-presented for payment.

No, this is a free service.

Security

Passwords must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be between 12 and 20 characters in length
  • Must contain at least one letter, number, and special character
  • Must contain both uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Cannot contain the following special characters: . @ : ~ (Period, At, Colon & Tilde)
  • Cannot be one of your last 3 passwords
  • Having a strong password for your device is the first step in preventing the loss of any personal information if the device is lost/stolen. This is especially true if you use your mobile device for Online Banking services.
  • Contact your carrier as well as your device manufacturer to see if they can assist you in wiping your device remotely. (Some services, such as Google allow you to do this online after you’ve logged into your account).
  • If you had PIN login setup on your lost/stolen device it may be wise to disable this feature by logging into the app on another device and disabling the feature through the ‘Settings’ menu. By disabling the PIN login you can ensure that both your username and password will be required to access the mobile app rather than just a 4 digit PIN (which has the possibility of being guessed).
  • Set up a strong Online Banking username and password that you do not use anywhere else (e.g. Do not use the same username/password for your email as you do for Online Banking)
  • Do not share your password with anyone, including Trailhead staff.
  • If you believe any of your devices or accounts have been compromised (Malware, hacking, 3rd party breach, etc.) change both your username and password on your account.
  • Set up Account and Security email alerts using the Trailhead Mobile App and Online Banking Service.
  • Keep a close eye on your account balances so that you can recognize any suspicious transactions.
  • Use the Card On/Off functionality within the Trailhead Mobile App and Online Banking service to disable your debit/credit cards when they are not being used.
