The Energy Credit Union Grant deadline is approaching!

The Energy Credit Union Limited would like to remind everyone that our grant deadlines are approaching. Please see our website or call our offices for application forms or more information. Our members’ personal development is important to us. We believe that knowledge and awareness of issues that impact our members is extremely important in order that our members can lead more productive and happy lives. To encourage our members to pursue higher education and foster an environment for personal growth, we offer the following Grants:

The Energy Essential Life Skills Grant
The Energy Credit Union Limited is dedicated to contributing to our members’ well being and personal development and as such we want to help provide students with opportunities to pursue post-secondary education. In an effort to prepare young people for the future and encourage them to become contributing and successful members, the credit union awards one $1,000.00 grant to help fund the expenses for one student in their pursuit of higher education.

The Energy Optimizer Grant
The Energy Credit Union Limited is committed to providing our community with opportunities for individuals to achieve their personal, educational and vocational goals and to become more responsible, productive and energized members of society.

Increased Security for Internet Banking

Attention Members, the Credit Union is happy to anounce that we have launched Increased Authentication, an additional layer of security for your Internet Banking experience.

How it Works

When you log into online banking, you will have to answer a challenge question. You will then view your personal image and enter your PAC.  Do not enter your PAC if the wrong image is shown as this could indicate a security issue. Contact your financial institution if this happens.

Registering your Computer for faster logins 

You can speed up the login process by opting to register your computer. When you log in from a registered computer, you don’t have to answer a challenge question before viewing your personal image and entering your PAC. Registering your home or personal computer is highly recommended for faster logins. You should not register shared or public computers. Cookies are used to identify registered computers. If you clear your cookies, you will have to re-register your computer.

If members should put in the wrong security question more than 3 times, their account will be locked, and the Credit Union will need to be contacted.  Members currently have the option to enrol for this new layer of protection; however, it will become mandatory within the next 2 months, and all members will login using Increased Authentication.  Members are encouraged to enrol now, choose their security image and phrase, and choose from a list of security questions in the enrollment process.  Your current Alias and Password will continue to work in tandem with this service.

If members have any questons about this new service that can help keep your money safe, please contact our office at 416-542-2522.
