Online and Mobile Banking: Get Started
To ensure that the transition to the new Online and Mobile Banking system is as smooth as possible, please take a few moments to read our tips to get started and enroll.
Key Changes to Know About
Online and Mobile Banking Including Bill Pay
Visit ucbi.com to access the new United Online and Mobile Banking system. Instructions are provided beginning on page 12 of the United Community Welcome Guide. Download the United mobile app from the Apple or Google Play store to access mobile banking.
If you use Online Banking Alerts, you will need to recreate them once you’ve signed into the new online banking system. eBills within the Bill Pay service will also need to be re-established.
Your Bill Pay payees and scheduled payments were automatically transferred and processed during the transition of your account, so there is no need for you to re-enter the information. Any future-dated and recurring internal transfers in online banking were also automatically converted.
The Progress mobile banking app(s) should be deleted from all tablets and mobile devices. The People Pay service and Digital Receipts service are no longer available.
If you had a Progress debit card, you should have received a new United Community Mastercard® debit card(s).
You will need to activate your new debit card and select a PIN prior to using it. If you have not yet activated your debit card, please do so by calling 1-800-992-3808. Debit cards issued by Progress Bank should be safely discarded.
Once activated, provide your new debit card number to any merchants currently using your card as a payment method for recurring bills.
If you have not received a new debit card, please visit your local branch.
Statements and eStatements
You should have received an interim bank statement from Progress Bank with balance and transaction information through April 14, 2023. We have now resumed regular statement cycle dates.
Up to 24 months of eStatements and transaction history are also available within the new United Online and Mobile Banking system. However, there may be a temporary delay accessing eStatements following the transition to the new system.
Loan Account Number Change
If your loan or line of credit with Progress Bank was not compatible with United Community's operating system, you should have received a letter from the bank with your new account number information.
Loan payments automatically drafted from an account at United Community (formerly Progress Bank) were automatically updated and no action is required. You can now make your payment at any United Community location, or you can mail it to:
P.O. Box 249
Blairsville, GA 30514
Your attention is required if your loan payment is being automatically drafted or issued from a different financial institution or Bill Pay service. Please contact your financial institution or Bill Pay service provider and provide your new loan account number(s) along with the following information:
P.O. Box 249
Blairsville, GA 30514
ABA #: 061112843
