Access to your personal accounts will transition to the Columbia Connect online banking system. This system is essentially the same system you are using today. These similarities make the transition to Columbia Connect a smooth one.
You will use the same user ID and password to access Columbia Connect that you use with the PCB online banking system today. When you attempt to login for the first time, the system will attempt to verify your identity by sending a Secure Access Code (SAC) to the phone number we have on file in the Secure Access Targets section of the PCB online banking system. Once you retrieve and enter the code, you will be asked to create a new password. You may use the same password you always have.
Verify Your Phone Number by March 1, 2018
To ensure you are able to access the Columbia Connect online banking system beginning March 12, 2018, it is critical we have your current phone number. Please login to the PCB online banking system and verify your Secure Access Targets. When accessing the system for the first time, you will be sent a secure access code to the phone number listed in the Secure Access Targets section of the PCB online banking system.
