Can I change the order in which I can view my accounts?

In addition, on this page you can also edit the name of your accounts to give a specific nickname by clicking in the box of the desired account, then clicking on the pencil icon. See additional instructions below.

How do I set up a recurring transfer in digital banking?
A. Go to “Transactions”, “Transfer Funds”, there you have the ability to initiate a one-time or recurring transfer. Funds transfers can be made to either an Ascentra account or to an external account, once that account has been set up and verified. Under the “Transfer Funds” option, after selecting the “From” and “To” options, the “Frequency” options will be there for setting up a recurring transfer at various times throughout the month. After that, select a start date to indicate how long you would like the transfers to happen.
Can I set up an external account to transfer money to/from my Ascentra account?
A. Yes. You can set up an external account by clicking on “Services”, “Add External Account” (an account you have at another financial institution) to be linked for electronic transfers. This feature is only available to consumer accounts. In order to add your external account you will need to have the following information:
• Institution’s Routing and Transit number
• Your Account number (max length is 17 digits)
• Account type - checking or savings
Two "micro" deposits will be generated and sent to your external account (typically within 5 business days). Micro deposits are random deposits in amounts less than $1. Once you have received these two micro deposits in your external account, make note of both amounts as you will need them later to verify your account. Follow the steps on the “Add An External Account” page to set this up. Micro deposits will expire 14 days from the time sent.
When I go into “Activity Center”, why do I only see certain transactions?
A. The transactions shown in the Activity Center specifically are only transactions that have taken place and processed within Digital Banking. To see a full list of your transactions, including debit card transactions, deposits, payments, etc., please refer to that specific account’s detailed transaction history.
How do I cancel a transaction which I’ve created?
A. Go to “Transaction”, “Activity Center” option and locate the transaction that needs to be cancelled. Click the dots in the upper right corner of the transaction you would like to cancel and find the “Cancel” option. A confirmation box will come up to “Confirm” your cancellation. If a transaction has already been processed, the cancel option will not appear.
Can I pay other people using Digital Banking?
A. Yes. You can send money to other people using PayUp, a feature in the “Transactions” section. This is a free service to our debit card holders.
Can I deposit checks through the mobile app?
A. Yes. You can deposit checks through the iPhone, Android and iPad app. You will have to endorse the check and write “For Mobile Deposit at Ascentra CU Only” below your signature, even if your check includes a box stating a similar message.
Is the Ascentra Digital Banking compatible with Quicken or QuickBooks?
A. Yes. You can export your account information over to Spreadsheet (xls), Spreadsheet (csv), Microsoft OFX (ofx), Quicken (qfx) or Quickbooks (qbo).

I was not able to download my Quicken or QuickBooks information prior to the upgrade, will I still have access to my information?

Intuit aggregation services for Direct Connect may be interrupted up to 5 business days after you do this.
Will bills I had scheduled for payment on the old Online Account Access MyBillPay still process after the upgrade on September 23?
A. Yes. All previously scheduled and recurring payments will continue to process and all payee information and payment activity will be migrated over to the new platform as long as you have used Online Account Access or MyMobile in the past 6 months.
