Online Banking FAQs

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 login 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.

What if I forget my password?

You can reset your password by using the 'Forgot Password' feature on the password screen.

  • Step 1: Click on the online banking button on vacu.org and enter your User ID.
  • Step 2: On the password screen, click on the 'Forgot Password' link just above the password field.
  • Step 3: Enter the requested information and click the 'Submit' button
  • Step 4: If we are able to validate your request, you will be prompted to enter and confirm a new password. Once your password has been changed, you will receive immediate access to your online accounts.

I’ve been locked out of online banking. Why did that happen and how do I get back in?

If you have entered your online banking password incorrectly five times in a row, the system will automatically lock you out. This is a security feature that helps protect your account from unauthorized entry. You will need to call Member Services at 804-323-6800 to unlock your account.

What types of transfers can I make?

Immediate — the transfer is attempted immediately

Future-Dated (One Time) — transfer is made on the date you specify

Recurring — transfer occurs at your specified frequency as many times as you indicate

How do I know if a transfer is successful?

If the transfer was successful, you will see a screen message that your transfer was successful and the transfer will appear in the Transfer Activity listing. Your account balances will also reflect the changes. You will receive a confirmation number with each transfer.

I’m a new member or I just recently added an account, why can’t I transfer to my account(s)?

New accounts will be in “view-only” mode until validated by VACU. This process usually takes 1-2 business days.

Will I be able to download information to Microsoft Money or Quicken?

Yes, you will. You will see the download links on the Account Activity page. You also have the option of downloading your information into an Excel spreadsheet.

Can I make payments to my VACU loans?

Yes, you may transfer funds from your VACU checking and savings accounts to your VACU loan accounts. In addition, you will be able to make additional principal-only payments for many types of loans.

Who should I contact if I need help?

Please contact Member Services at 804-323-6800 or 800-285-6609.
