Family accounts can be accessed via One Source Home Banking; however, a separate enrollment must take place for each account. The primary and family accounts may be viewed separately, once you have access, but not under one view. Logging on to One Source Home Banking does not automatically link you to all accounts to which you have access. You will need to log on separately for each account.
Primary members on an account, 14 years of age or older, may enroll by calling or stopping at one of our three branch locations. You will need to sign an Electronic Funds Agreement. For the account of a minor child under the age of 14, access must be authorized by the parent or legal guardian who is also the joint owner on the account. Complete the member section of the application and sign the child's name followed by your own in the space designated for the member. Then, to add yourself as an authorized user, complete the authorized user section of the application naming yourself as an authorized user, so that you can access the account.
Third-party transfers, even within family accounts, are not offered through the One Source Home Banking system.
Can I authorize someone else to use my One Source Home Banking service? How?

Is the Internet safe and secure for online account access? Can other Internet users see my account information?
When you are using One Source Home Banking, you are using a secure site. One Source is committed to online technology and has taken steps to ensure that accessing your accounts via the Internet is safe and secure, by implementing state-of-the-art security standards.
Additionally, we allow you to select a password of your choosing that will be easy for you to remember and keep "secret." This password is used to authenticate you each time you log on to the One Source Home Banking system, prior to allowing you to begin viewing your information. The confidentiality of your accounts is maintained as the data is passed from our host computer to your personal computer in an encrypted format, where your browser then decodes the information for you to view. This prevents the data from being intercepted and/or viewed by an unauthorized third party. One Source has also installed secure firewalls to ensure that no unauthorized access is permitted. These firewalls have also been tested by an independent professional services consulting firm to ensure that they cannot be breached. Additionally, each user session is set up for a specific period of time; when it is exceeded the session times out. If your session times out, and you are not finished using One Source Home Banking, you will need to log on again. This reduces "the window of opportunity" for an unauthorized user to access your account information if you walk away from your computer without logging off of One Source Home Banking. Every effort was made along the way, as the system was designed and developed, to ensure that this system is as secure as possible.
The credit union is confident that offering you account access through One Source Home Banking is safe and that your account information remains confidential, as long as you follow safe computing standards.
One Source strongly recommends that you use a secure browser with 128-bit, U.S. security level, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption for accessing One Source Home Banking.
How can I keep my account information confidential when using One Source Home Banking?
One Source Credit Union is confident that we have taken all of the necessary security precautions to ensure that our Internet account access service is secure and that your account information remains confidential. However, it is also your responsibility to play an active role in protecting the security of your accounts. Following are ways that you can protect yourself and your accounts:
Never share your password with anyone-- even family members. If you are the only one who knows your password, you have protected your accounts against unauthorized access. AND REMEMBER, NO REPRESENTATIVE OF ONE SOURCE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION WILL EVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR One Source Home Banking PASSWORD.
We recommend that you change your password on a regular basis; but you should always change your password immediately if you think that your password may have been compromised, and contact the credit union immediately.
Do not walk away from your computer in the middle of an active One Source Home Banking session. If you are logged on, and walk away, anyone can sit down to your computer and have immediate access to your account(s). Always remember to log off when you are finished with your session.
