Important Planned Banking Service Interruptions Scheduled for June 10 – 11

 

Merger Resource Centre


We’re getting stronger by coming together.


As we move to the next phase of the Entegra and Assiniboine Credit Union merger, we will be working to bring the Outlook and Implicity banking systems together to enable banking across a common platform. We will be integrating our existing systems over the weekend of Friday, June 10 to Saturday, June 11.
We’re working hard to minimize the impact of this conversion, but there is important information you need to know about merger weekend. There are planned service interruptions that will affect both Outlook and Implicity account holders, and some interruptions that will only affect Implicity Financial account holders. Please take time to review all the information below to ensure you’re aware of what affects you.

 

Upcoming banking service interruptions.


During the week of June 6 to 11, banking services will be temporarily interrupted as we work behind the scenes to bring our systems together.

 *Digital banking refers to accessing online banking, the mobile app, and all digital banking features.
**Point of Sale (POS) payments with your debit card and access to your accounts through ATMs will be extremely limited throughout the weekend. We highly recommend that you have alternative methods of payment, such as credit cards or cash withdrawn in advance, available to use throughout the weekend.

Our Member Communication Centre will be open with regular business hours to answer questions about the service interruptions, however, because our banking system will be down for a portion of the time, representatives will not be able to process transactions on behalf of account holders, or review account activity.

Implicity Financial account holders who also have accounts with Outlook Financial:
Use your Outlook Financial sign in credentials on Sunday, June 12, and you will be able to see your Implicity accounts.

Interac e-Transfers
Your Interac e-Transfer profile will not carry over to Outlook Financial’s digital banking system. Here are a few things to know:


Sending and Receiving Interac e-Transfers
Send all Interac e-Transfers prior to 9:00am Monday, June 6* and accept incoming e-Transfers before 9:00am on Wednesday, June 8. Services will resume when digital banking comes back up on Sunday, June 12.

After June 12
• Set up your Interac e-Transfer profile using the same email address you are using now.
• Set up Autodeposit.
• Add recipient contact information.


* All pending e-Transfers will be cancelled and funds returned to sender before the merge starts at 5:00pm, Friday, June 10.

Implicity Financial account holders who also have accounts with Outlook Financial:
o Your Outlook Interac profile will remain as it is now, with the contact information you currently have. You will continue to use this profile, not your Implicity Interac profile.
o You will need to add any e-Transfer contacts/ recipients you have set up in Implicity digital banking that you don’t have in Outlook digital banking.

Note: Based on requirements of the Income Tax Act, using Interac e-Transfers to transfer to and from TFSAs is not allowed. These transactions must flow through a member's chequing/savings accounts first.


Important Information for Outlook Financial Account Holders


Interac Autodeposits

Some Interac e-Transfers sent during the merge weekend to account holders with Autodeposit set up may be cancelled. If this happens, funds will be returned to the sender.

 

Product Changes
Effective Monday, June 13, Implicity High Rate Savings Accounts will be switched to Outlook High Rate Savings.
