How do I enroll in online banking? Enrolling takes just three minutes and is fully secure. You will need your Social Security Number and member number, and you'll be asked a few security questions. Once enrolled, you'll have immediate access to your account information within online banking. You can also activate Bill Pay and eStatements once you have logged in. Once I enroll, how do I log on to online banking? To log in from your desktop computer, click on the online banking login button located in the top right of the website. This button will appear on every page of vacu.org. To log in from your mobile device, click on the menu button in the top right corner of vacu.org.

We’ll be sure to save whichever device you’ve logged in from, so you won’t have to authenticate from that device again. If you log in from a new or unrecognized device (phone, tablet, or computer) or a different physical location, you'll be prompted to enter a code again. What if I forgot my User ID? No problem! When you go to log in, just click "Forgot User ID?" and then fill in your email address, Social Security Number, and date of birth.
