Starting March 23, 2015, members who currently have a personal account AND a business account will begin using separate logins in Online Banking to access their account profile. Organizational account users will also be affected by this change.
Only accounts set up with a specific Employer Identification Number (EIN) will be affected by this change. Sole proprietorships and LLCs that were set up under individual Social Security Numbers (SSN) will not be affected.
Why are we doing this?
After Blue updated it's core and Online Banking system in 2014, our members have been able to access their entire financial profile - making managing their finances much simpler and effective.
Business and organization accounts behave differently because of the levels of access within those accounts. Our membership has voiced that business and organization accounts are more effectively managed through separate Online Banking logins.
For instance, a military organization account is structured so that members of that organization can make deposits on behalf of their group. However, in Online Banking they don't necessarily need to see or have access to the entire organization's account.
If you are currently an owner or a signer on a business or organizational account, you will now see ONLY your personal accounts (and joint accounts if applicable) in your Online Banking. Your business account will be accessed through a separate login, which you can set up by clicking here.
If you need to set up a separate Online Banking login for your business or organization account, you can click here and enroll entirely online in 5-10 minutes. You will need the following information to set up your Online Banking:
- Employer Identification Number (or your TIN)
- Zip Code (the zip code that is assigned to your business/organization account with Warren)
- Start Date of Your Business (the date your business/organization was started) You can call us at 1-800-368-9328 if you don't remember.
- Email (the email in which you use for your business/organization account)
If you have a personal business account that was set up underneath your Social Security Number (such as a cosmetics distribution business), your account will continue to appear in your personal account view within Online Banking.
Only business or organization accounts that were set up with a specific business or non-profit Tax Identification Number (TIN) will be affected by this.
