Important Information to Enhance Your Digital Banking Experience

REMEMBER ME: The new Vast Bank Online and Mobile app login flow allows end users to opt into “remember me” functionality. Certain cookies or browser extensions can cause the “remember me” check to fail upon next login. This occurs when the device ID stored doesn’t match the device ID in the “remember me” cookie as a result of the cookies or extensions they have on their browser.

TRANSFERS: We are not able to convert your recurring or future dated external transfers. Therefore, you will need to reestablish those transfers in the new program. If the transfer is to a loan account, you will need to establish it in Bill Pay. End dates may not be established for recurring transfers. External transfer fees will now be charged on the day of the transfer as opposed to the end of the month.

Recurring and future dated internal transfers will not be debited or credited to an account until nightly update and will only be processed on business days. In our previous system, the debits and credits would happen by 9:30 am daily, including weekends.

ACCOUNT HISTORY: 120 days of account history will transfer with the conversion, and your transaction history will build with continued activity. EStatements prior to 120 days will still be available for your reference in the Documents section if you were previously enrolled in EStatements.

TRANSACTIONS: On the home screen, the transaction list includes transactions from all your accounts. You may view transactions from specific accounts by clicking on the account name.

EXTERNAL ACCOUNTS: Some external accounts may not be converted. Upon conversion, please verify your accounts. Note: you must have an owner relationship for an account to be connected to your profile.

SUPPRESSED ACCOUNTS: You may have accounts connected to your profile that were suppressed from your view in the previous system. These accounts will be viewable at the time of the upgrade. To suppress any of your accounts, click on the account you wish to suppress, select Settings, and turn off the button next to “Show in app.”

ALERTS: Any alerts established in the previous system will not transfer to the new system. You may reestablish balance and transaction alerts in the new system beginning on August 6th. When using our mobile app, you’ll need to enable notifications to receive alerts. SMS Alerts will come from 918-393-8505.

END OF DAY: 7 PM

TEXT STATEMENTS: To view a non-beautified version of an electronic statement online, please ensure the “View Electronic Document” permission is checked.
