First-Time Login FAQs
All you need is your Username and the Temporary Password we mail you by late July, as described in Step 1 of our instructions. Go to sterlingconnect.com, sign in, follow our Two-Step Authentication process, then create a new Password. From there you will be able to start exploring what SterlingConnect can do for you! (If you do not receive or can’t locate your Temporary Password call us at 877-249-1230 or visit sterlingconnect.com and click on “Forgot Password?” to reset your password.)
As soon as you receive your new Temporary Password via mail, you will be able to log in to SterlingConnect and get a clear, holistic view of all your accounts with us. That’s why it’s such a good idea to log in and start using SterlingConnect at your earliest opportunity! We’ll even provide a link to your current Business Online Banking program through SterlingConnect. Through August 10, you’ll still need to use your existing Username and Password to log in to your current system, where you can make bill payments and other transactions. After we convert your service to our new system on August 13, you’ll be able to access all your online banking services with one convenient login to SterlingConnect.
We require a Username of 6-32 characters. The following special characters are not permitted: @, +, =, &, <, #. If your Username doesn’t qualify, or if you have other problems logging in, just call us at 877-249-1230.
Bill Pay FAQs
Yes, all your payee data will appear automatically, as will your recurring and future-dated payments. However, we highly recommend that you double check and confirm the accuracy of these future payments on your current system on or before August 10 to help assure an accurate transfer of your future payments.
Yes. For security reasons, only the last four digits of the account number are displayed in the summary, but the full account number is used for processing.
Yes. You will now be able to specify a “Pay Date” for each bill you pay online. Payments will be mailed with sufficient time to reach the recipient by your “Pay Date.” Check payments will be deducted from your account when deposited into the recipient’s account, and electronic payments will be deducted on the designated “Pay Date,” not on the date you initiate the payment.
In the new system, the “Pay Date” is the date it will arrive at the payee. (For your convenience, we display the earliest date your payment could arrive at the payee when you initiate each payment. You can adjust that date further out if you wish.)
Bill Pay history through August 10 will be viewable in your checking transaction history. All new bill payment history will be available within the bill pay section.
Nicknames were not transferred over to the new system. You will need to enter any account nicknames to your payee information.
Yes, this service is still available but will need to be re-established on or after August 13. Any company that offers eBills will have a clickable icon that says, “GET BILL” to the left of the Payee Name.
