Why do I occasionally get an ALERT screen?
Beacon Online Internet Banking will automatically log you off if you have remained idle for a period of time. This is done in case you have forgotten to log off the system. If you are idle on a particular page for a while, the system may interpret this to mean that you have left the system and will subsequently log you off. When you request your next page, you will be presented with the ALERT screen and you will need to log back into your account.
When I sign in, I am immediately presented with an ALERT screen saying I have performed an illegal activity.

I'm "Locked Out". What do I do?

I've requested an Account to be added, but it doesn't show up in my Accounts summary.
When you request an account to be added, it will usually show in your Accounts summary the next time you sign on. Occasionally, it may not appear until the next business day. If the account doesn't show up in your Accounts summary page after one business day, send a message to the Customer Service Desk and the matter will be researched.
The information in my register doesn't appear to be up-to-date.
