ENROLLING & SIGNING IN
How do I log into the new Online Banking portal for the first time?
If you have an existing Online Banking account, enter your current User ID and password. The first time you log into the new system, you’ll be prompted to initiate a confirmation code request through either a text message or phone call to one of the phone numbers we have listed for your account. After you receive your 8-digit confirmation code, enter it into the Online Banking screen.
Next, you’ll be prompted to change your password – be sure to select a password that is at least 8 characters long, and includes the following: a lower case letter, an uppercase letter, a numeral and a special character.
You’ll then be prompted to set up security questions and answers intended to help verify your identity as you’re logging in. It’s a quick and easy process that helps keep your account information safe.
If you don’t currently have an Online Banking account, you’ll need to take just a few extra steps to set one up. Visit onlinebanking.mycompeer.com/SignIn, click “Register” and follow the instructions that are displayed to create your new Online Banking account.
What should I do if I’ve forgotten my password?
On the login page, click “Forgot Password?” On the next screen, enter your User ID. We will then verify your identity by sending you a confirmation code via text message or phone call to a phone number we have on file, (you can choose a preferred method). After you receive your confirmation code, enter it in the system and create your new password.

How do I make a payment or schedule a transfer?
1.Under the Accounts tab, select Pay Now, which is the fastest and easier way to make an immediate payment on multiple accounts. You must have an External Account set up to use Pay Now. If you want to schedule a payment to occur on a specific day or on a recurring basis, select Make/Edit Transfers under the Transfers tab.
2.To make a payment on your Compeer Financial accounts through Pay Now, click Accounts and select Pay Now in the dropdown menu. All accounts with payments due are automatically selected. If you choose not to pay one or more of the accounts, unselect those accounts. You can add extra principal to this payment to be applied as a Special Principal payment. For loans with a pre-payment penalty product, fees may be charged to the payment.
3.To use the Make/Edit Transfer option, click the From Account dropdown list and select the account that is the source of funds you wish to transfer.
4.Next, click the To Account dropdown list and select the account you want the transferred funds to be applied to. This can be any account (internal or external) as long as it is not the same account in the From drop down.
5.Enter the amount of money you wish to transfer. If an amount is shown in the Fixed Payment box, this is the current amount owed or in billing for the account selected in the To Account. You may change the payment amount shown or use the Principal Only or Interest Only options. Principal and Interest Only will only be available when no amounts are in billing. Principal Only amounts are applied as a Special Principal Payment.
6.Select from one of three Scheduling Options:
Immediate is only available for transfers that involve a Compeer Financial account in the From Account and the To Account. The cut off time for immediate transfers is 4 p.m. CT.
Current or Future-Dated One Time is available for internal and external accounts. Payments and transfers can be scheduled to occur on the next business day or later.
Recurring is available for internal or external accounts and is used to schedule repeating future transactions with regular intervals.
7. Add a description to the transfer for reference purposes only.
8. Scheduled transactions will appear on the Transfer Activity tab under Transfers. If you need to cancel a transaction that is still pending, you may do so up until the cut off time for that transaction type. Pay Now transactions cannot be cancelled and will show as pending on the Account Activity tab under Accounts.

- After the micro deposits hit your external account, log back into Compeer’s Online Banking, go to Transfers, External Accounts, and click the Verify link. You will then be prompted to enter the two amounts of the micro deposits that were sent to your external account. These amounts do NOT have to be in any particular order and you do NOT have to key the decimal point.
- Once the amounts are verified, you will have access to this external account on the Transfers screen to move money or make payments.
What is Pay Now and how do I use it?
