  • Why am I having trouble logging into Personal Online Banking?

    KANZA Bank Personal Online Banking incorporates multiple security measures to keep your account information private. To help maintain the most secure access, please observe the following:

    • Your user ID and password are case-sensitive and should be entered exactly as you established them. Entering incorrect information more than once will result in your account access being locked. If this occurs, contact KANZA Bank customer service (this should link to an e-mail or a contact screen) Monday through Friday during business hours.
    • Occasionally, our system will automatically require you to update your password and you’ll be prompted to do so upon log-in.
    • If you correctly enter your user ID and are unable to proceed to the password screen, your account may be locked.

    If you believe you entered your user ID and log-in correctly and are unable to gain access, or if your account has been locked, please contact KANZA Bank customer service (this should link to an e-mail or a contact screen) Monday through Friday during business hours.

  • Why do I have to keep entering a verification code to log in?

    This appears to be an issue with Internet Explorer (IE) 9.0+ automatically deleting your cookies every time you shut down your computer.

    • Within IE 9.0+, click the Tools icon on the upper right side (looks like a gear wheel).
    • Select Internet Options from the dropdown list.
    • In the Browsing history section, uncheck the "Delete browsing history on exit" checkbox.
    • Click the Privacy tab.
    1. Click the "Advanced" button.
    2. Select the "Override Automatic Cookie Handling" checkbox.
    3. Select "First-party Cookies" and "Third-party Cookies" radio buttons, if needed.
    4. Select the "Always Allow Session Cookies" checkbox.
    5. Click the OK button.
  • How can I update my security phone numbers?

    In the Security section you can quickly update your existing security phone numbers. If you only have one phone number entered, you have the ability to add another phone number. When you are finished, click the OK button to save your changes.

  • How do I manage my online statement options?

    The Online Statement Options feature allows you to choose between receiving monthly statements by mail or waiving them.

If your e-mail is not on file, and you elect to receive monthly e-mail reminders, you will be asked to supply it.

    To change your online statement options:

    1. Click the desired method of handling paper statements delivered by mail.
    2. (Optional) Click the radio button for the desired method of handling e-mail reminders of online statement availability.
    3. Click Change Online Statement Options to submit your preferences for monthly statement delivery and e-mail reminders. A confirmation message appears.
