Q: How do I register for the new Online Banking platform?
A: You can register for the new Online Banking platform at tulsafederalcu.org by clicking “Login to accounts” on the homepage. Then choose “Not registered?” and you will be directed to a sign-up page. Your username will be your savings account number and your starting password will be the last four digits of the primary account holder’s social security number.
Q: Where do I login?
A: Go to tulsafederalcu.org and click “Login to accounts.” If you have never set up Online Banking with Tulsa FCU before, see the above answer on how to register your account. If you have used Tulsa FCU’s GoTime online banking before, your initial credentials the first time you log in to the new online banking platform will be:
- Username — Current GoTime Banking username.
- Password — Last 4 digits of the primary account holder’s social security number.
Once you have completed this step, you will verify your Identity using a 6-digit, one-time code which you may choose to receive via phone call, text message or email. Once you enter this code into the prompt, you will be able to set your new password. If you have any problems with this verification step, see the next question.
Q: Verification code is not working.
A: Make sure that the verification code you are using is a 6-digit numerical code.
If you are using a 6-digit code, your code may have expired. One-time verification codes expire after 10 minutes in order to ensure they are not misused. If your code is over 10 minutes old, you should request a new one by following these steps:
- Go to tulsafederalcu.org and click “Login to accounts.”
- Use your savings account number as your username and the last 4 digits of the primary account holder’s social security number as your password.
- You will be prompted to request a new verification code via phone call, text message, or email and a box will appear where you should type the verification code once you have received it.
- If you requested to receive the code via email, be sure not to close or navigate away from the browser window where you will be typing the verification code. Instead, open a new browser window to check your email.
- Enter your verification code into the box provided.
- If you are still having trouble getting the verification code to work, please call our Member CARE Call Center at 610.0200,
