Universal 1 credit union FAQ

What browser should I use?
Please make sure you use one of the following: Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Apple Safari 8+.

What are the new User ID and Password requirements?
Your User ID must be at least six characters long but no more than 20 characters. It can contain letters, numbers, and certain special characters (@$*_-=.!`). However, it cannot contain any spaces between characters or only numbers.

Your Password must be at least six characters long and no longer than 32 characters. It cannot contain any whitespace and cannot be a substring of the User ID. It must also contain characters from at least two of the following three categories: letters, numbers and any special characters.

Will I be asked security questions?
No. You’ll be asked for a verification code that can be sent to your phone or email to confirm identity. This code will also be used if you forget your password.

Do I have to get a verification code each time I log in?
It depends. If you have disabled cookies on your browser settings, the online banking system will prompt you for a security code each time you log in.

Enabling cookies will allow you to log in without being prompted for a code because the device remembers your previous visits to online banking. You will need to indicate when you enter the verification code if you are logging in from a private or public computer.

Why is my account automatically logging off?
After 10 minutes of inactivity your account will automatically log-off. However, a box will appear with 60 seconds left asking if you would like to stay logged in. Click yes if you wish to continue.

Can I use my savings account to make payments?
No. Payments can only be made from your U1 checking account(s). Your payments are protected through overdraft coverage.

How do I delete a payee?
When in Bill Pay, select the tab “Manage My Bills.” Choose the Payee Name from the drop down menu and delete.

Is there a cost to use Bill Pay?
No. U1 Mobile and Online Banking, including Bill Pay, continue to be free services for personal accounts. Members making more than 15 payments/month should review Online Banking & Bill Pay Disclosure. For business accounts, please see current Business Fee Schedule.

Where can I export to my Microsoft Money?
Since Microsoft Money is discontinued, we no longer support this service. We encourage you to look into a service like Quicken or Mint to help with your money management needs.

I'm worried about security, what information is being collected from my account?
We don't share any of your information with merchants offering rewards. All information is safe with us and stored in the Digital Insight data center. Your account # is not shared with merchants or 3rd party vendors. The only piece of user data that is used is the ZIP code which is utilized for geo-targeting. Review Purchase Rewards Data Sharing for more details.

How do I opt out?
By default, Purchase Rewards is enabled for every Debit Card user, including viewing inline offers. To completely Opt Out, go to your account's History Page and click Purchase rewards preferences. Click "Remove me from this program" then Update Preferences. You can always opt back in by clicking the Get Started button through the Purchase Rewards widget on your Home or History Page.

If I return the purchase, does the reward get taken back out of my account?
No. if a return is made, there is no adjustment to the reward - the reward remains in your account. This is because we do not share personal information with the merchant, so there is no way to track returns.
