INOVA Online Banking is for anyone: individuals and businesses. We provide separate enrollment options for individuals and businesses.

Question #10

I have both business accounts and personal accounts; can I transfer between them?

Answer:

If your business has its own tax ID number, (TIN), then you cannot transfer between your business and personal accounts. Banking regulations prevent the Credit Union from allowing this type of transaction -- and your accountant would probably also frown on this type of transaction, even if we allowed it. You can, however, use online bill payment to solve this problem. As a person, you can pay your business; and your business can pay you as a person

Question #11

Can other people access my financial information?

Answer:

We give you a Sign-On ID and password so that only you have access to your accounts through INOVA Online Banking. All account information transferred to your computer is done so over a secure connection.

Keep in mind, however, that you yourself have a critical role in maintaining the privacy and security of your account. To help ensure the security of your financial information, follow these rules:

  • Do not give your Sign-On ID and password to anyone. If two or more people share a Sign-On ID and password, The INOVA Federal Credit Union has no way to tell which of those people actually performed a given transaction. You are responsible for any transaction performed using your Sign-On ID and password.
  • Do not leave your Sign-On ID and password out in the open where anyone passing by can see it.
  • Do not leave your computer unattended while you are logged in to INOVA Online Banking. If you leave your computer unattended while you are signed on, anyone passing by could use your computer to perform any of the transactions that you are authorized to perform.
  • Always sign off at the end of an INOVA Online Banking session. This will terminate your session, which will prevent someone from using your browser's Back button to return to a session that has not yet timed out.

In general, all of these are common-sense rules. Use good judgment to ensure that your financial information remains secure.  INOVA Federal Credit Union is not responsible for nonpublic personal information or financial information that becomes public because you did not maintain the security of your Sign-On ID and password. The INOVA Federal Credit Union is also not responsible for financial loss that occurs because you did not maintain the security of your Sign-On ID and password.

Question #13

Why is it so important for me to sign off from INOVA Online Banking?

Answer:

It is very important that you end each INOVA Online Banking session by signing off. To sign off, click on the Sign Off link on the left side of any INOVA Online Banking page. This will end your INOVA Online Banking session.

Why is this so important? Because of the way the Web works, signing off is the only way the online banking service knows that you have ended your session. If you leave INOVA Online Banking without signing off -- by going directly to another web site, for example -- the online banking service keeps your session alive for up to 20 minutes while it waits to see if there is something more you want to do. This is not good for two reasons: First, it is a security risk; if you leave your PC unattended during this time, someone could use your browser's Back button to return to your active session. Second, if you try to sign on again before the online banking service has timed out your session, you will receive an error message.

Question #14

Is INOVA Online Banking available all the time?

Answer:

INOVA Online Banking is available for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. We occasionally have scheduled maintenance periods which will be posted on the login screen prior to the maintenance.

Question #15

Can I use my browser's Back and Forward buttons to go from one INOVA Online Banking page to another?

Answer:

In general, you should never use your browser's Back or Forward buttons to go from one INOVA Online Banking page to another. If you are doing a transaction -- such as paying a bill, or transferring money -- use the buttons at the bottom of the page to either complete the transaction or cancel it. Use the buttons at the top of a page to perform a function related to that page, such as Add Payee or List Payees. If you are viewing information and want to go to another page, use the links on the left-hand side of each page.

Question #16

What account information can I see online?

Answer:

INOVA Online Banking shows you a list of your accounts, summary information about each account, a transaction register, lists of pending bill payments and transfers, and lists of your payees. Initially, INOVA Online Banking will display up to 90 days of history for your accounts. As you use INOVA Online Banking, your transaction history will accumulate. INOVA Online Banking stores over a year of transaction history by the time you have been using it for ten months.

INOVA Online Banking reports allow you to see summary and detail information about your accounts. You can assign transactions to categories that you define, and then report on transactions using those categories.
