Changes Coming to Online Banking

On November 12, 2019, the online banking service offered through Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union will be undergoing some changes. The purpose of the upgrade is to increase functionality and ease of use for our members, but the modifications will also improve the aesthetics of our online banking portal and our mobile app.

Below you can see a screen shot of a generic dashboard in the old style (first image) compared to the same generic dashboard after the upgrades (second image). You’ll notice that the upgraded version offers Recent Online Activity, Next 15 Days, and Recent Transactions sections on the right of the account summary. These sections are intended to help members manage their accounts more easily, and provide at-a-glance information for members upon logging in. Other functions can be found in the menu bar indicated by three parallel lines in the upper left corner of the screen. You may also notice the tabs available for frequently used functions.

All of the features available in online banking prior to November 12 will still be available after the upgrade, so the features you currently see when viewing your dashboard (such as write checks or funds transfer) will simply be located within the drop-down menu bar.
As always, we have representatives able to answer your questions over the phone or in person. Please stop by or call (479)649-2060 if you experience difficulties with the upgrade.

Stop Scams Before They Happen

Don’t be a victim of scams! They happen every day, and they can happen to you. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to decrease your chances of being a victim of a scam.

NEVER give your account information to someone over the phone.

NEVER accept money from someone you don’t know.

Giving out your Online Banking information and/or allowing someone to use your account makes you liable for the transactions.

If you have a large sum deposited into your account and you aren’t sure why, call us. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be an ABFCU employee but the call sounds suspicious, do not provide any information. Instead, end the call and call us. We will know if someone was trying to reach you.

We at Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union are committed to helping you avoid being scammed. If you think you are a victim of a scam, give us a call. Let’s work together!
