We post notices on our website whenever we encounter system outages or require routine maintenance. However, if no notices are posted and you still can't log in to e-Banking, your account may have been locked. A common reason for this is too many incorrect login attempts, but if you are unsure please contact us for more information.
The User ID is optional. This will allow you to access your account on e-Banking without using your member number to sign in. If you decided to create a User ID, you can sign in using either your member number or User ID. Think of the User ID as a nickname that you use to access your account. Some people prefer to use a name that they can remember, rather than using their member number.
Your Security Phrase is used to help you identify e-Banking as a legitimate website. After enrollment, each time you sign in to e-Banking you will see your security phrase along with a security image of your choice.
If you forgot your password, you can reset it online. You'll need to verify some information before selecting a new password. You can also contact us during normal business hours to get your password reset. Once reset, you will then be prompted to change your password to something else when you sign in.
In order to verify your membership during enrollment, you must type your information exactly as it appears on your account. After more than three unsuccessful verification/login attempts, your account will be locked for 24 hours for security purposes. To unlock your e-Banking account, contact us or wait 24 hours to try again.
Signing in to e-Banking is a multiple-step process. At the login start, enter your unique User ID. You will then be directed to the next page, which should display the security picture and phrase you chose during enrollment. If your security picture and phrase are correct, you may input your password. If it is your first time logging in, you will be prompted to enter a unique passcode on the following page. Choosing the "Remember Computer" option will allow you to bypass this part of the log-in process in the future.
When logging in, select the "Remember Computer" option after entering your unique passcode.
Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Netscape Navigator and Opera have been tested and verified to work with e-Banking and our services.
Your e-Banking log-in pass code will need to be renewed every 60 days. When renewing, simply re-select "Remember this Computer/Device" when signing in.

Mobile Banking is your own personal branch that is available anytime, anywhere! Take advantage of the same features you’re accustomed to, including at-a-glance actual and available balances for all your accounts; transaction history details, including searching within a specific date range; view check images; quick, one-time or scheduled transfers between your own accounts or other members’ accounts; and pay bills with a mobile version of e-Pay.
You can also use Mobile Banking to keep up-to-date with Nutmeg information, such as branch hours, locations, and contact information; current rates for share accounts, certificates, and loans; locations of Nutmeg ATMS and ATMs within the SUM® and/or CO-OO® networks. Mobile e-Banking is just as secure as the full version of e-Banking, so you can rest assured your information is kept safe. No information is stored on your mobile device. Best of all, if you’re already signed up for e-Banking, you’re already signed up for Mobile e-Banking too!
Never use the browser’s Back button on a phone with Mobile Banking, especially after visiting a page where you have entered information and pressed Submit or Continue. Use the links and tabs to navigate through the pages.
Mobile Banking is encrypted using the Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS) protocol, which provides the highest level of security available today. Additionally, all data that passes between the wireless gateway, MShift’s servers, and Nutmeg’s web servers is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates.
Using your mobile phone to enter data takes a little practice. Passwords are case sensitive, so make sure you are entering it exactly as it is set up. If your password begins with a lower-case letter, you may need to use your phone’s shift key to change the default from upper case. In addition, some phones require extra shift key presses to enter numbers instead of letters.
There may be one of several things occurring with your online banking account.
1. Online Banking may be down. This can be confirmed by logging in to e-Banking.
3. You may have one or more pages appearing in online banking that require your attention, such as email address confirmation pages, security update pages, or Terms and Conditions updates. Log in to e-Banking to view these pages before using our mobile banking services.
If you are locked out of mobile banking, you must contact us to unloack your account or request a new password. For security reasons, you may not change your new password through mobile banking.

Regulation D (Reg D) is a Federal Reserve Board regulation that impacts savings-type accounts. It states that the maximum amount of transfers made out of savings or money market accounts must be limited to six per month.
e-Banking tracks your amount of Reg D withdrawals by month (with a limit of six per month). You can view your Reg D transfer count in e-Banking under "Account Details."

Direct deposits are credited by 8:30 am each business day.
We receive credits or items for deposits four (4) times per day. Depending on your payroll company, you could see your deposit after any of the following times: 2:00 am, 8:30-9:00 am, 11:30 am, and 4:00 pm.
We will need at least one business day to cancel a scheduled payment (cannot be the same business day).
Holds are placed on items in order in ensure the credit union receives payment of the funds the items represent. When an item is presented for deposit, the credit union does not immediately receive the funds from the paying institution. Checks must be sent through several "clearing houses" until it reaches the paying institution. Once received, the paying institution then remits the funds to Nutmeg (which can take several days).
We are bound by Federal Regulation CC when placing holds on a deposited item. Click here to view our disclosures for more information.
Checks are returned by the credit union when there are not enough funds in your share draft account to cover the amount of the item being presented for payment. Overdraft protection allows the credit union to automatically transfer funds from your share account or money market account directly to your share draft account in order to cover the amount of an item being presented for payment. There is a $5.00 fee for this transfer. Due to Federal Regulation D, some restrictions do apply. We allow up to six drafts per month.
We do not charge fees for ordering checks. Check order charges are from Harland Check Printers.
Our routing & transit number is 211977362.
Your available balance is the difference between your current balance and any pending transactions that haven't posted to your account yet. This is used as a safeguard to help prevent account overdrafts.

e-Statements is a part of our e-Banking service that allows you to retrieve your statements from any computer with internet access. With e-Statements, you can receive your statements as webpages (HTML) or exactly as your printed statements would appear (PDF). You can also choose to save your statements to your computer rather than printing them. Once you enroll in e-Statements, you will no longer receive paper statements. This service is free to all Nutmeg members!
There are many benefits to using e-Statements. By signing up, you'll get your statements several days faster than printed statements (and usually within the first two business days of the month). e-Statements also save paper and reduce the credit union's printing costs.

In order to enroll in e-Statements, you must have a valid e-Banking login (username and password) and a valid e-mail address. Once enrolled, a valid e-mail address must remain associated with your account to allow electronic statement notifications to be sent to you.
Select the "Print/Save as PDF" option. By doing this, your statement will be downloaded as a PDF and will be available for your recordkeeping.
