WHEN DOES THE MONEY BECOME AVAILABLE TO THE RECIPIENT?

WILL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH THE RECIPIENT?
Only your name will be shared with the recipient. For more details, review the Terms & Conditions.
WHAT PIN DO I ENTER TO VERIFY A TRANSACTION?

The PIN pad will scramble after you enter each digit of your PIN number for your protection and as an added layer of security.

IS ACCU’S PERSON-TO-PERSON PAYMENTS SECURE?
Yes! There is no need to share your account number with anyone. Money is sent securely using just an email address or phone number. ACCU’s Person-to-Person Payments are processed and protected in the same manner as PIN-based point of sale debit card transactions.
P2P is built into Online & Mobile Banking, which includes many security features designed to protect your financial information. P2P also utilizes a scrambling PIN pad that requires PIN entry by mouse or touch screen; a PIN cannot be entered by typing numbers. This feature helps keep the transaction secure if your device is infected with viruses or malware that track keystrokes. In addition, the PIN is encrypted so it never travels across payment channels as a number PIN.
