"Does not meet username or password requirements"
This error is present during the enrollment process or when updating credentials. Click on Show Rules below the username and password field to see the credential requirements.

"It looks like you've already enrolled"
This error is present during the log in process and typically means that our records show that you have previously created an account with us. If you forgot your username and password, on the log in page click Forgot? Follow the steps to recover your account. Contact us at 870.793.4441 if you need further assistance.

"Your account needs attention"
This error is present during the log in process and typically means that your account has been locked. This can happen for a variety of reasons, but is easily resolved. Please contact us via phone or chat for assistance unlocking your account. Phone: 870.793.4441

"Please verify your information and try again"
This error is present during the log in process and typically means that your credentials didn't match our records. Try entering your credentials one more time. If the error persists, please contact us via phone or chat for further assistance. Contact us at 870.793.4441.

This error is present during the log in process and typically means that your account information does not match our records. Please contact us via phone or chat to confirm we have the correct phone number and username on record. Contact us at 870.793.4441.

What is 2-Factor Authentication and why is it used by the digital banking system?
Two-Factor Authentication is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to digital banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access.


Can I use an email for two-factor authentication?
An email and a phone number are required for the two-step authentication. The one-time access code will be sent via text or phone call. The phone number must match our records for the additional security layer to work correctly.


When I log into digital banking, do I need to get a confirmation code every time I log in?
No. Check the “Don’t ask for codes again on this computer” box if you do not want to receive a confirmation code or phone call each time you log in. If you prefer to input a confirmation code with each use, you can leave the box unchecked or use the 2-Factor Authentication app to deliver the code.

Note: If you ever want to remove a device and reset your security settings, you can change them in settings once logged in to digital banking.


How can I log in to digital banking if I can't get a verification code through text message?
Two-Factor authentication uses a unique one-time access code to verify identity and log on to digital banking. If you are unable to receive text (SMS) messages, you can choose to receive your access code via a phone call.

  • On the verification code screen click "Try another way" located beneath the Verify button
  • Select "Phone Call" and click "Next"
  • You will receive an automated phone call that will provide your access code (Have a pen and paper ready)
  • Return to the verification code screen
  • Enter your access code and click "Verify"

If you are still having trouble, contact the bank to ensure we have the correct phone number on file.

If you would like to use Authy for multi-factor authentication in digital banking:
