Make sure your Internet Banking access experiences no service interruption by enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 before Monday April 9, 2018!

About Transport Layer Security (TLS)

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol ensuring that a connection to a remote endpoint is securely encrypted to provide privacy and data integrity. More and more web applications and application programming interface (API) connections use TLS as a key component of their security. TLS 1.2 is the most current version and is considered to be the most secure. Earlier TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 are less secure. The predecessor to TLS, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), has been disabled in our online banking system.

See the browser/operating system list below to see if yours is compatible. Even if compatible, we recommend you follow the instructions farther down this page to confirm it. Note: Unless your system requires it, do not disable older TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1. If you do, other sites you use and visit that are not yet upgraded to version 1.2 may fail to work for you.
