FIRST TIME LOGINS
Q: LOGGING IN: How Do I Login to Online Banking?
We’ve put together a set of step-by-step Online Banking login instructions for your first login. In addition, here are a few things to keep in mind when logging into Online Banking the first time:
- New Account Number = User ID
You should have received a letter from us with your new account number, which starts with a 9. This is also your User ID for Online Banking. You will not be able to login using your old MCT User ID. If you did not receive your account number, please email us with your name and phone number at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Password = Last four digits of the Primary Member’s Social Security Number
This is a temporary password that you will need to change when you first login to Online Banking. This is further explained in the Online Banking login instructions.
Q: INTERNET EXPLORER 10: Is IE 10 compatible with Online Banking?

Please use the following step-by-step Online Banking with Internet Explorer 10 Guide to correctly configure your browser. If you are comfortable with making quick changes to your browser, simply enable the Compatibility View in the browser for esfcu.org.
Q: WRONG CHALLENGE QUESTIONS: I am receiving a challenge question that I did not select.

Q: VIEWING HISTORY: Do I have access to my Online Banking history?
Your previous history is available through the My$DashboardSM section of Online Banking.

You can also view your history with eStatements located on the eDocuments tab in Online Banking. Here you'll find options for either your account or credit card statement. Simply select the month you want to view. If you haven't signed up for eStatements already, click the Your Preferences tab and choose the eStatements selection option. Switch your Preference from US Mail to Electronic under Services. eStatements will now appear under the eDocuments tab. To switch back to US Mail delivery of your statement, click the Preferences tab and choose the eStatements selection again. Then switch your preferences back to US Mail.
Q: TRANSACTION HISTORY: Where is my transaction history prior to January 1, 2013?
