Alterna Bank FAQ

You've got questions.

We've got answers!

For most clients, your Login ID is your member number. You can access your member number via your statements, on the bottom of cheques, or by calling the Contact Centre.

​To get a new Online Banking Password please call the Contact Centre toll free at 1.866.560.0120. 

To ensure your banking safety and security, access to your online banking account will be deactivated if you have not logged into your account within the last six months. 

Please reach out to our contact centre at 1.866.560.0120 to reactivate your online banking access.

If you find there’s a payee that’s inaccessible for payment through our services, please contact the payee directly for alternate payment arrangements since some companies have their own online payment service. If you find a payee isn’t on our payee list, please let us know. We will forward your request to our online banking provider, Central 1. Be sure to include the company name, address and, if available, a contact person and email.

No. When you delete a bill payee, any recurring or future-dated payments you have set up for that payee must also be deleted. Otherwise, the receiving company will be notified that your payment failed.

To avoid unnecessary failed payment notifications, please delete any future payments you may have scheduled for bill payees you delete.

Your security is our top priority, which is why our mobile banking app uses the same level of secure protection as our online banking platform. You log in with the same credentials, and once you log out, your secure session will end.



Read these tips to protect yourself while banking on-the-go.

Immediately change your online banking password. If you can’t access online banking, visit one of our branches or call our Contact Centre as soon as possible. Before travelling, check with your mobile device carrier regarding data plans, rates and roaming fees.

As long as you have access to the internet, mobile banking is available wherever you are, whenever you need it. Before travelling, check with your mobile device carrier regarding data plans, rates, and roaming fees.
