Once you have opened a Zag account, and it has been activated with your first deposit, we will send you an email that includes a link to Zag Online along with simple instructions on how to get started. If you’re ready to start today, here’s all you need to know.

  1. Go to and click on the ‘Login’ button
  2. Click on ‘First time here? Sign up for online banking so you can get started!’ at the top of the page
  3. Next, you’ll be asked to create a user ID and password and provide answers to a few security questions.

Then for on-the-go access, download the Zag Mobile app for iOS or Android devices.

That’s it. It only takes a couple of minutes.

For on-the-go access, you can download the Zag Mobile app for iOS or Android devices.

When you open an account, you will be asked to create a password. Here are the requirements for your Zag password:

  • Your password must be 8 to 32 characters in length with no spaces, have a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, at least one number, and at least one of the following special characters # . , - : ? | ( ) ' \ / @ $ !.  
  • Your password should not contain your user ID or the word ‘password’

For your security, you will need to change your Zag password once a year. Not to worry, we will prompt you to change it when it’s time. Note, you cannot use the same password more than once.

We also will ask you to create security questions that will identify you if you forget your password and get locked out.

Alerts notify you of different types of activities on your accounts.  Some are mandatory while others are optional and can be customized. You can choose to receive your alerts by email or by push notifications on your device.

You can decide what information you want to receive on an ongoing basis. For example, you may want to know when your balance falls below a set amount. Or maybe you would like to receive your transaction history at regular intervals.

For your accounts, you can set up Alerts to notify you if:

  • Your balance falls below or above a set amount
