Online Banking FAQs

There are some simple steps you should take to ensure the security of your information and protect your privacy when using Online Banking:

  • Protect your password. It is your key to accessing your accounts. Do not reveal it to anyone.
  • Memorize your password. Never store it on your computer/mobile device or write it on paper that you keep near your device or carry with you.
  • Do not choose passwords that incorporate your name, telephone number, address, or birthday or those of any close friends or relatives.
  • Never leave your computer unattended while logged into HomeStreet Online Banking.
  • Be wary of using untrusted networks like public Wi-Fi spots.
  • Set a passcode lock to access your computer.
  • As with any device that accesses applications and wireless networks, you should ensure your computer is patched with the latest security updates.
  • If you do not have sufficient funds in your checking account on the date the payment is sent to the payee, we will utilize Overdraft Protection funds to process the payment. There are fees associated with this and you can learn more about our fees by clicking here. If the funding account does not have Overdraft Protection, the payment will be canceled.
  • In your Personal Online Banking profile select the "Pay and Transfer" tab and click on "Make an External Transfer" under "External Transfers." Click on "add an external transfer account." You must be an owner on both the HomeStreet Bank account and account at the other financial institution to use this service. You will be prompted to input the other bank account information; including the type of account, account number and routing number. HomeStreet Bank will send two small test deposits which you will deposit to the funding account in 2-3 business days. Please note normal processing times apply. If your request is after standard processing of 5pm and on the weekend this process may take longer. You will need to enter/confirm the amounts in the EFT verification section. Once the process is complete, you will be able to initiate the external transfer from your Personal Online Banking profile.
  • In your Online Banking profile, click the "Pay and Transfer" tab located at the top of the page. Under "Funds Transfer," choose "Make a Transfer."

A new window will open with your last statement or a listing of the last 13 months of statements, the last year's statements, or this year's statements. You can print the PDF from this window or save the PDF to your computer.
