eBanking Security

Q: What is a one‐time security code?

A: A one‐time security code is a randomly generated one‐time code we provide for you. You will enter the code to help prevent fraudulent transactions and unauthorized access to your accounts and financial information.

Q: Why is a one‐time security code needed?

A: A one‐time security code provides you with an extra layer of protection to ensure your funds and financial information are safe. By requiring the entry of a one‐time code and the use of a phone number you have on record with us, fraud is prevented even if an unauthorized user learns your User ID and Password. By using a one‐time security code, you are also notified if an unauthorized user tries to access your account information or complete transactions without your knowledge.

Q: How do I use a one‐time security code?

A: Using a one‐time security code is easy! We'll give you the one‐time code by calling you or sending you a text message using a phone number you have on record with us. Please remember you will need to be near your phone and the number you use must correspond to the current numbers we have on file for you. Once you receive the code, you'll be prompted to enter the one‐time security code to complete your eBanking login.

Q: Do I need to save the code?

A: No. Once the one‐time security code is entered, you cannot use it again.

Q: Will I be able to receive eStatements for my IRA Savings account?

A: Due to regulations, IRA Savings accounts will receive a paper statement via the mail. In addition, as an individual account owner you can combine your IRA Savings account statement with your Checking, Savings or Money Market account statement. When you choose to combine your statements, you will then be able to select online statement delivery for all of your accounts including the IRA Savings account. If you are unable to combine your IRA Savings account statements with another Johnson Bank deposit product, you will not be able to choose online statement delivery for your IRA Savings account.

Q: If I change my statement delivery from paper to eStatements, how long before the change takes effect?

A: Typically, these changes take effect when your next eStatement is produced.
