How do I set a language preference on the ATM?

Your ATM experience can be customized to skip the screen asking you to select a language. To do this, simply swipe your card, select your language and enter your PIN. Then, select “Set Preferences” (lower, right side of the screen). Choose to always default to English or Spanish, then save your preference. Next time you enter your PIN, you will not be prompted to select a language.

Is cash deposited into the ATM available right away?

Good news! Your cash is available upon deposit. There is no waiting period.

I want to make a withdrawal but do not see the account. Where did all my accounts go?

The new ATMs default to providing a “Checking” option and a “Savings” option. Selecting either of these options will default to showing only the primary checking or the primary savings account. If you have more than one checking or savings account, those accounts will be accessible by selecting the “From Other” option. This will show the rest of the accounts.
