On April 8, 2014, web security experts discovered the Heart Bleed Bug which can potentially compromise user information security on various secure websites.
Our home banking system (Web Teller) was quickly addressed with a vulnerability patch. As of 15:39 MDT on April 8, 2014, impacted servers were patched to eliminate the Heartbleed zero-day vulnerability.

Limit on Transfers from Savings or SuperShare Accounts
Federal regulations limit the number of “pre-authorized” transfers you may make from your savings account. That includes any transfer not done in person or by mail, such as transfers on Web Teller. You may make only six of these transfers per month for each savings account. Any transfers after the sixth one in a month WILL NOT be completed unless done by mail or in person.

Downloading Account Information
You can download information from your Internet banking accounts in several different formats.
* Quicken - QFX file format
* Microsoft Money - OFX file format
* Comma Delimited—Use this format when importing information into word processing documents or databases.
* Excel®—For download into a Microsoft Office® spreadsheet.
Note: Internet Explorer® automatically opens this file in an Excel file viewer; save it as an Excel worksheet to work on the data in a spreadsheet.
Caution: Most difficulties arise from not having a file type associated with this download. When the file type is not recognized, the file is typically saved in a *.html or *.txt format. You can correct this by defining your Quicken or MS Money application to handle *.qfx (for Quicken) or *.ofx (for MS Money) files.
Quicken: If you are using the data with Quicken software, follow the directions for “Quicken Web Connect” in your Quicken software. See http://www.intuit.com/support/.
