Does CU1 have a mobile app?

Yes! Simply register for your new Online Access account via our full website at, and then download or update the CU1 app on your smart device. Our updated mobile app is better than ever! Say hello to Touch ID and paying bills from your phone.

How do I use Quick Login with the CU1 Mobile App?
    1. Enter your password in the CU1 Mobile App, select the “Enable Quick Login” box, and then click “Login.”
    2. Select a 4-digit PIN that consists of at least two different numbers, is non sequential and doesn’t have any numbers that are repeated 3+ times. All Quick Login users must select a PIN, even if you will be using Touch ID for authentication.
    3. Confirm your selected PIN.*
    4. Enter a unique device name (max 50 characters). Your selected name will display in the Security tab of the Settings widget. This will be used for disabling your PIN in the event that your device is lost or replaced, as PINs are device specific.

*After enrolling in Quick Login, iOS users with Touch ID enabled will be asked for a fingerprint instead of your 4-digit PIN. However, you’ll always have the option to use your 4-digit PIN instead if you prefer.

Can I take screenshots within the mobile app?

If you use an iOS device, yes. On Android devices, this feature is disabled due to operating system restrictions.

How do I transfer funds to another CU1 member via the mobile app?

First, you’ll need to add the other member’s account info in the transfer area of Online Access, using our full website at Once this information is saved, you can transfer funds to them via our Mobile App in just a few taps, any time!

Do you offer Bill Pay?

We sure do! View a tutorial on Bill Pay within our new Online Access here! Schedule your transfers and then enjoy a handy “calendar” view of them. You can also pay bills from the CU1 Mobile App!

I’m trying to schedule multiple payments to a payee (not recurring). Bill Pay thinks I’ve made a duplicate payment, but I haven’t!

Before scheduling subsequent payments to a payee, your first payment must be successfully made. If you’d like to schedule multiple payments to the same payee, the “recurring payment” feature should be used. 

Can I use Online Access to transfer funds to another financial institution?

Yes! However, the financial institution to which you are transferring money may require that your name be listed as an owner on the receiving account. To avoid the possibility that your transfer will be rejected due to non-ownership of the receiving account, we encourage you to use CU1’s handy Bill Pay service! With this quick and simple service, you can send money in just a few clicks to any payee.

When I pay off a CU1 loan or close an account, will it still show in Online Access?

Once you have paid off your loan, it will disappear from Online Access. Congrats on the achievement! Likewise, if you close one of your CU1 accounts, it will no longer appear online.

Are Intuit products such as Quicken, QuickBooks or Mint compatible with Online Access?

Yes! Intuit completed a Java update that enhanced compatibility between these programs and Online Access via “Express Web Connect.”  Although we are not able to offer assistance for third party vendors, websites such as offer top-notch online support for their products, and they can even remotely access your computer to help solve issues if you’d like! 

Why can’t I download my transactions to Quicken, QuickBooks or Mint?

CU1 uses the most current and secure version of Java when communicating with Intuit products such as Quicken, QuickBooks and Mint via “Express Web Connect.” Unfortunately, Intuit has had many on-going connectivity issues that are affecting financial institutions nationwide. To work around this issue, you can manually download Online Access transactions via the following steps!

    1. Sign in to your Online Access account and click the account suffix from which you would like to download transactions.
    2. Use the search function to narrow your date range as desired.
    3. Click on the “export” icon and choose the appropriate format for the product you are using – i.e. Quicken or QuickBooks. 
    4. Log in to your Quicken, QuickBooks or Mint program and import the file.

Please note, a similar Intuit service named “Direct Connect” is not supported by Online Access. Click here for additional FAQs and instructions.

Why are some of my check copies missing from my transaction history?

Please give us a call, and we can fix this for you. Certain CU1 members have multiple “MICR” lines for checks, and both our old and new Online Access only recognize one MICR line per member. Although there is no issue in processing these checks, you’re not currently able to view copies of them via Online Access until you alert CU1 of the occurrence.  

How do I sign-up for e-Statements in Online Access?

To sign-up for e-Statements, first click the “Statements” tab on your accounts page. On the following page, select the blue e-Statements tab that appears.

I don’t want e-Statements, but I do want to be able to view my statements online. Why are they not available?

Right now, only members with e-Statements can view their statements online. You can request a mailed or printed copy of your statement in any CU1 branch or via our Member Service Center.

Why can’t I view e-Statements on my joint-owned account?

With CU1 e-Statements, information is compiled based on the primary account owner’s social security number. As a joint owner, you may not be “joint” on every account (for instance, if the primary owner has a loan under only their name), and this could expose you to the primary owner’s private information. As such, e-Statements are not currently available for viewing by joint account owners. However, our paper statements compile information based on your unique member number – which means they are an excellent alternative! We are working to provide e-Statements to joint owners in the near future.

How do I setup alerts?

Set up for alerts is easier than ever! Look for the area named “Notifications” within Online Access and you’ll also notice a whole set of alert options to help with your budgeting and savings goals.

Is my transaction history available in Online Access?

Yes! Online Access contains two years of your transaction history. In the future, up to five years will be available.

If a transaction is reversed, can I view the reversal in Online Access?

For transactions made in CU1 branches, reversals will not be viewable in your Online Access transaction history. Your Online Access account balance will reflect the reversal, but the reversal itself will not appear. For a complete transaction history that includes reversals, please view your monthly statement. 

Can I view copies of checks?

In a flash! Simply click on a transaction and an image of your check will appear.
