How do I sign up for First Community Online Banking?

To sign up for FCB Online Banking, visit our website at www.firstbeemer.com and click on the First Time User link in the Online Banking  Section.  After reviewing the Internet Banking Terms and Conditions, click the "I Agree" button. This will take you to the First Time Login screen.  Fill in the required information and click "Submit."  Then complete the Multifactor Authentication security information.  You will then be asked if you would like to receive your statements electronically.  After you finish with that screen, your first time login process is complete.

Who will be able to see or access my accounts?

Only the signers of an account, using their own unique Access ID and password can view or access the accounts.  In addition, to insure our customers have the highest level of security available, we require the use of a "strong encryption" (128-bit) browser (See Security).

What if I forget my password or it doesn't work?

If your password does not allow you access to your accounts, please contact the Electronic Banking Department at (402) 528-3223 or (800) 431-1567 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or email us at: support@firstbeemer.com.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a piece of securely-coded information sent by First Community Bank to your computer when you enroll in online banking.  Cookies include a randomly generated, unique number used as a sign in or registration identifier.  Every time you log in from that same computer, your Web browser sends us back this cookie, which is a security feature that lets us know that you're using your own computer.

I share a computer with someone who also uses Online Banking.  Can both of us sign in from this computer?

You can both use the same computer to sign in to your individual Online Banking account safely; you won't see each other's information.  There is no limit to how many people can sign in to Online Banking from the same computer.  Just remember not to share your Access ID, Password, or answers to your challenge questions.

What type of browser is necessary to access online banking?

To ensure the highest security, a browser using 128-bit encryption is required.  To verify if your browser is compatible, click on the "Browser Check" button located in the online banking menu under "Security."  If your browser is not compatible, you may download a new browser by clicking on one of the browsers offered under the same "Security" section.

How do I use Online Bill Payment?

If you utilize www.firstbeemer.com for online access to your personal accounts, you have the option to use First Community Bank's free bill payment service. You can use bill payment to pay any bills that you choose to pay.

Once logged in to your account information, click on the Payments tab.  This will take you to the Payment Center, where you are able to:

  • Set up one time payments
  • Set up recurring payments, for example monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly
  • Set up payments to be paid on a specific day or even in advance
  • Save money on postage and check expenses
  • Store biller history
  • Select the next day payment option (fees will apply)

The payment date that you select is the date the bill will receive the payment.

What is bill payment and is there a fee?

FCB Online Banking offers a bill payment feature in which you can pay all of your bills.  This service is completely free for personal checking accounts with First Community Bank.

What is Multifactor Authentication?

Multifactor Authentication is an enhanced security feature that is now a standard part of your FCB Online Banking log in routine. First Community Bank is always working to protect you against identity theft and fraud.  Multifactor Authentication will add to this protection by preventing unauthorized access to your accounts while reassuring that you're at the valid First Community Bank website.  Multifactor Authentication consists of three parts:  an image, pass phrase and three challenge questions that are secrets between you and the bank.  All three parts help protect you, whether you're signing in to Online Banking from your home computer or from somewhere else (such as work or a public computer).

Why do I need Multifactor Authentication?

Multifactor Authentication helps to ensure your information is secure by protecting you from fraud and identity theft in two ways. First, it helps you recognize that you're at the valid Online Banking site a First Community Bank, rather than a fraudulent look-alike site.  Secondly, you can trust that we also recognize you as the true owner of your account.  We'll ask you one of your challenge questions if we don't recognize your computer, which is an additional line of defense against unauthorized access to your accounts.

What if someone steals my password?  How will Multifactor Authentication prevent them from accessing my account?

When an unauthorized person tries to sign in from another computer, we will recognize that they're using a different computer, and so we'll ask one of your challenge questions. They won't know the answer and will be unable to log in to your account.

Why do I need to set up challenge questions?

Challenge questions help prevent unauthorized people from getting access to your Online Banking information.  That way, even if they've stolen your Access ID and Password, they won't know the answer to the secret  question.  And if someone signs in from a computer that we don't recognize (for example, if you sign in from a public library), we will ask you a challenge question to verify that it's really you.

What keeps somebody from stealing my image and pass phrase?

After you click on the Submit button, we only show your image and pass phrase automatically if you sign in from a computer we recognize as your computer.  If you're at a different computer, we ask one of your  challenge questions before showing the image.

When I enter my Access ID, it asks me a question instead of showing my security image.  Why?

This is to help verify that it's really you signing in.  We ask a challenge question when you sign in from a computer we don't recognize.  Your correct answer confirms that it's really you.

How do I know I'm at the genuine Online Banking site?

Multifactor Authentication will help you figure that out.  Type the correct address (www.firstbeemer.com) into your Web browser.  When you arrive at the site and enter your Access ID, click on the Submit button, and  our secret image and pass phrase will appear.  That's confirmation that you're at the bank's legitimate Web site.  If you do not see your secret image and pass phrase, and are not asked a secret challenge question, do  not enter your Password.  Since this may represent a fraudulent website, please report this immediately to us at support@firstbeemer.com.

How does First Community Bank know that I'm signing in from my own computer?

When you sign up for our Multifactor Authentication service, we put a secure cookie on your computer. This cookie contains a randomly generated, unique number used as an identifier.  When you sign in after that, your Web browser sends us this cookie, which lets us know that you're using your own computer.  The cookie is visible only to the Online Banking site at First Community Bank and does not contain any personal information.

Can I access Online Banking from multiple computers?

Yes, you can access Online Banking from any number of computers and have the same Multifactor Authentication protections.  If you sign in from a computer that you haven't used for Online Banking before, you will  need to answer one of your challenge questions to verify your identity. Once you answer the question correctly, we will ask you if you would like us to recognize that computer in the future.  If you answer yes, you will  not need to answer a challenge question in the future.

What if I get a new computer?

You will need to answer one of your challenge questions to verify your identity.  Once you answer the question correctly, we will ask you if you would like us to recognize that computer in the future.  If you answer yes, you will not need to answer a challenge question in the future.

Can I change my security image, pass phrase and challenge questions?

Yes, you can change your security image, pass phrase and challenge questions at any time.  We will never ask you to change your information and we will never change it for you.  To make the change, sign in to Online Banking and go to the Options tab at the top of the page.  Then click Change Security Data.

Is there a fee for using the Multifactor Authentication service?

The service is free. It's part of our ongoing commitment to safeguard your privacy and security.
