Get Started with Online Banking!
Login To Online Banking
Thanks for your interest in Online Banking! To begin, we have to first identify who you are. Follow the simple and fast steps below to set-up your access to GTE Online Banking.
Step 1: Enter your temporary login information:
On your first visit to Online Banking, your temporary username is your member number. Then you'll enter your temporary password: the first 2 letters of your last name in capital letters plus the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. An example temporary password for John Smith would be SM1234. You can also request a password. Once you enter your member number and temporary password, click the "Login" button.
Step 2: Create your permanent login information:
The system will now have you create your own permanent login information. On this screen, re-enter your member number and temporary password, and then the permanent username and password of your choice. Once you have entered the information, click the "Create New Online Banking Username and Password" button to continue.
Step 3: Set up your MyKey:
Once your new username and password is created, for additional online security, you will need to enroll in MyKey – a way we authenticate you and how you know you haven’t been directed to a phishing site. Here’s how it works:
- You will first select an image. An image will appear at the top of the screen. If you would like a different image, click on the "change image" link. This will take you to the image library, where you can browse and choose one from the selection provided
- Next you will enter a word or phrase that will be your MyKey phrase
- Then you will choose a total of three security questions and input the answer to each in the boxes provided
- Enter your email address in the email box and click the "Next" button
- This will then take you to a screen to verify all the information you have entered. If correct, click on the "Enroll" button
And voila! Once you have completed these steps, you’re ready to start Online Banking. In the event you encounter problems getting set-up, see our FAQ for help.

Some of the components of this security system include:
- A username and password (PIC) are required to access the system.
- MyKey authentication system to strengthen login safeguards by adding steps to verify your identity.
- Encryption scrambles your transmissions when crossing the Internet.
- The Online Banking servers are behind firewalls.
- After entering a password incorrectly three times, access to an account is blocked and your identity must be authenticated before access is restored.
