Core Conversion

  • What is a Core System?

    Our Core System is the database we have that holds all of your member information and allows us to perform all transactions.

  • What will be different after the Core System Conversion is complete?

    As far the Core System is concerned, the only differences members will see will be subtle. Statements and receipts will look a little bit different but aside from that the day to day interaction members have with the Credit Union will not change.

    If you use our Electronic Services, please refer to the Electronic Services Conversion FAQ’s regarding changes to Online Banking, Mobile Banking, Bill Pay, Shared Branching, the Hotline, etc.

Online Banking


  • If the new Online Banking system is not accessible until October 2nd, why would I pre-register?

    We are offering our pre-registration as an option so that our members can be set up and ready to go on October 2nd. We anticipate that our members will have questions about logging on to the new Online Banking system during the first days after it is live and by offering a pre-registration period we are hoping to answer your questions and get you set up before the phone lines get busy.

Mobile Banking

  • Will the App Icon be the same?

    No. You will need to delete the current App and download the new BFCU Mobile Banking App from the App store on October 2nd.



  • What is my Password changing to?

    Everyone’s password is going to default to the last four digits of your social security number plus your zip code.



      • Last four of your social          1234
      • Your zip code                        02124
      • New Password                      123402124

Bill Pay


  • Will my Estatements be lost?

    Absolutely not! The Credit Union has access to your past Estatements and can assist you with getting copies if needed and the new system will save all of your new Estatements going forward, starting with September 2017.
