GET STRONGER PAC PROTECTION
We are continuing to enhance our online banking security to ensure the highest level of security for our members. In addition to our existing safeguards, including encryption and security questions, we will be introducing an enhanced Personal Access Code (PAC) for our online banking users.
When you set your new PAC, you can now increase the strength of your password to include the following:
- Minimum of 10 characters
- Maximum of 30 characters
- Minimum of 1 Alpha character (Upper Case)
- Spaces are not permitted
- Minimum of 1 Numeric character
- Minimum of 1 Special characters
- Exclamation mark: !
- Number sign: #
- Dollar sign: $
- Apostrophe (single quote): '
- Left parentheses (round bracket): (
- Right parentheses (round bracket): )
- Comma: ,
- Hyphen: -
- Period: .
- Forward slash: /
- Colon: :
- Question mark: ?
- At sign: @
- Vertical bar (pipe): |
Your NEW stronger PAC will impact all devices currently used to access online banking (desktop/laptop computer, mobile platform and Northern Credit Union app). Your new stronger PAC will not apply to telephone banking, which will retain your existing PIN.
As best practice, it is important to not reuse the last 5 PACs you've used.

You will then be prompted to enter your NEW PAC and verify it by entering it again.
