How can I pay bills electronically?
With Online & Mobile Banking, you can set up payees and pay bills directly from your CCCU account. Once logged in, click on “Bill Payment.”
Depending upon the person or company you’re paying, you may also be able to set up bill pay via ACH (Automated Clearing House) transfers or credit/debit card payments online. Companies like PG&E, AT&T, City Garbage, various mobile phone service providers, and many more will accept this kind of payment. You may visit their website and sign up to pay your bills online.
To set up electronic payments from your account, you will need your routing number and account number. You can use the same guidelines as above, regarding direct deposits, to obtain the appropriate numbers.
You may receive a letter (or E-Letter, if you’re subscribed to our e-statements services) notifying you that an automatic transfer will soon begin from your account. This is simply a required notification confirming that your transfer relationship has been set up properly.
What is Popmoney?
When you need to transfer money to a friend or colleague on-the-go, use Coast Central Popmoney! This Bill Pay feature allows you to send funds from your account directly to someone’s email address or mobile phone (via text message). They’ll be able to open the request and enter their account information, which initiates a transfer that will arrive within just a few business days.
What are E-Services (E-Statements, Letters, & Alerts)?
E-Services are a quicker, more secure way to receive statements, letters, and even automatic account alerts from Coast Central. Instead of waiting for a paper statement to arrive in the mail, you’ll receive an email and/or text message notification that your latest statement is available. You’ll also be notified if you have new letters or other correspondence available to view. You can view or print your documents whenever you need to. Best of all, it’s free! E-Services also give you access to a variety of different account alerts (E-Alerts), which are customizable email and/or text notifications about activity on your accounts. You can choose to receive alerts when your checking balance goes below a certain threshold, when a loan payment is coming due, or for a number of other useful circumstances. You can even set up personal alerts to be delivered whenever you like, such as birthday notifications or appointment reminders.
You can sign up via online banking to switch your statement delivery method instantly! Just click on “E-Services Setup” and follow the steps to get started. You’ll use this same screen to manage your settings, set up new alerts, and view recent activity.

What is the purpose of a Secure Access Code?
Secure Access Codes utilize contact information on your account to verify your identity.If you’re comfortable,you may choose to skip this step by registering your browser. Keeping it enabled, however, adds an extra layer of account security.
How do I setup different contact methods for my Secure Access Code?
Once logged in, you can view or update these options under Security Preferences in the Settings menu. By default, the system will pull in the contact information you have on file, but you can customize delivery methods to your liking.
Why isn’t my Secure Access Code working?
If you received your code via text message, be sure that you’re entering the 6-digit code within the message and not the number the message is from. If you’re experiencing other problems,double-check the code and try again, or try sending yourself another code. Note: For security reasons,Secure Access Codes are only valid for a limited period of time. If it has been longer than 15 minutes since the original receipt, request a new code.
What is Secure Email and how do I use it?
Occasionally, we will need to send you an email (or you will need to send one to us) that contains secure information, such as your social security number or your account details.
Why do we have a secure email system?
Your privacy and the security of your accounts is very important to us. If we need to send you information that may be sensitive (such as transaction information, or account numbers), it’s important that nobody but you can see it. Unfortunately, email may not always be secure–it has to pass through several other systems (such as your email provider’s computers) to get to you. We use technologies such as encryption to help protect messages, ensuring that nobody but you can read the email. However, any computers that had to pass that email on to get to you may still have copies of that message. The most effective way for us to protect you is to use this secure email service, which allows us to ensure that your information goes directly from us to you.
To read an email we’ve sent to you:
When we send you a secure email, you will get a message that says “You have received an encrypted message from Coast Central Credit Union.” that looks like this:
To access the message, open the attachment, and click the button labeled “Read Your Secure Message”.
If you haven’t received a secure message from us before, you will need to enter your name and create a password. If you have already enrolled, you will just need to enter your password:
Your email message will appear. From here, you will be able to use our system like any other email client, allowing you to print your message, download attachments or reply to your message.
Of course, if you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us or come into a location.
To send a secure email to us:
To securely communicate with us, there are two convenient options:
- You can log in to Online Banking and:
- At the top right, select “Messages”
- Then choose “Member Services”, “Member Loan Services”, or “Member Business Services”, as appropriate.
- If you wish to attach a document, click the paper clip and select the desired file to send.
- If you don’t have Online Banking or need to send us a very large file, contact our Member Support Center at (707) 445-8801 and ask for us to send a Secure Email to you. Then you can simply open the email, reply, and attach any documents you’d like.
Both of these options provide a secure method of communicating with us on any topic, and you can safely include attachments.
