Important Information

Recently, a vulnerability known as the "Heartbleed Bug" has been in the news.  This bug creates a possible weakness within certain websites, which could allow protected information to be compromised.  Our online banking provider does not use Open SSL, meaning that our online banking system is safe from this potential bug.  We will continue to monitor this situation and provide you with any updates as necessary.

Additionally, Microsoft recently announced that they will no longer support Windows XP as of April 8, 2014.  There will no longer be security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system.  Security updates that patch vulnerabilities are essential to help keep users safe and their data safer.  It is recommended that you migrate to a current supported operating system, such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, so you can receive regular security updates and protect your computer from malicious attacks.
