Subject: System Upgrades November 7

All of our Electronic Banking system will be unavailable the morning of November 7. We anticipate we will be operational again at approximately 1 p.m. the same day.

Although we do not anticipate any issues for the processing of ACH Files, Wire Transfers and External Transfers that afternoon, as with all system upgrades there could be some unforeseen events that could result in these items not processing successfully. 

To be on the safe side, we encourage you to consider not processing ACH files, Wire Transfers or External Transfers on November 7.  Please choose Tuesday November 6 or Thursday November 8 instead.

When the system comes back up November 7, your log in credentials will remain the same.  The  Electronic Banking on your desktop will navigate the same and the account tile layout will have a new look.  

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize if this short outage inconveniences you.  If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 620.663.1521.
