Account nicknames

Customize your accounts with names that make sense to you.

Nicknames, sometimes called account descriptions, make it easier to identify your various accounts and products. The names you assign will show throughout online and mobile banking, instant balance and on your account statement.

Nicknames can be anything you want and you can add them to a variety of items:

  • Chequing and savings accounts
  • Loans
  • Bill payees
  • Member Cards
  • Term deposits

You can add nicknames to your accounts in online banking or you can call us or visit a branch. Access online banking using the Sign In link at the top of this page.

  1. Sign in to online banking.
  2. Select Self Serve and then "Nickname my accounts" under the Display Preferences section (or use the quick link on the account summary page).
  3. Enter a nickname in the box beside the item that you want to change. When you're done, click Save.

Your nicknames will appear anytime your account, loan, Member Card, term deposit or bill payee names are used in online and mobile banking. Nicknames will also appear on your account statement.
