Screen Overview

This screen is the gateway to move to the Verify Member screen and subsequently the Main Teller Posting Screen.

Currently Serving (Assisting the Person In Front of You)

You can use the Process Code Funds in/Serving Another Owner to use the Currently Serving Feature. This allows you to assist the person in front of you. The next screen will allow you to select this person from a list of people who associated with the account (excluding beneficiaries or Secondary Names designated as a Misc. Owner.) When you move to the Main Teller Posting screen, the screen will indicate to which accounts the person is associated. (Asterisks and the lack of withdrawal screens indicate that the person does not have access. Learn more about Currently Serving. (Much more information about this feature is available on this topic.)

Using this Screen

This screen is the first of several used for member deposits, withdrawals and other transactions. You must be activated as a teller before you can begin using this screen to process transactions.

  1. Start by entering your Employee ID and password.  If Name ID is activated, you will need to enter the Name ID of the member.  Learn more about Name ID configuration. 

  2. Next, enter the member's base account number and choose a Process Code to specify which screen should be displayed next. (See “Field Descriptions” below for a description of each code.)  Use Enter when ready to proceed.

Searching for an Account

Learn more about using the search fields (also used on the Global Search screen)

To look for an account, enter a name or other criteria using the Search Criteria fields, then use Enter to look for items that match. Once the search list appears, you may select the account and use Enter or Select, or type the account number (be sure to clear any remaining search criteria) and use Enter to proceed. (The required digits for the SSN is configured in your credit union privacy configuration.)

Go Back to a Previously-Used Account

If you want to access a membership you used recently, enter your employee ID and password, then click the lookup next to the Account # field. The Your Most Recent Accounts Accessed pop-up window will appear.


Optional Fraud Detection Warning

CU*BASE has an optional feature that can be activated if your credit union wishes to implement procedures to address risk-management and fraud detection concerns.  This can be activated on the Teller/Member Service Workflow Controls.

When activated, this flag will alert tellers when members perform transactions through either teller posting, ATM, CU*TALK or It's Me 247 online banking more than once during the day. This would provide an alert, for example, if a member attempts to deposit a bad check at one branch then withdraw the funds at a different branch the same day before it has a chance to clear.

After the member number has been entered, you may see the following message appear at the bottom of the screen:

1418-WARNING: Member has transactions today. Press enter to continue.

This indicates that a member has completed any transactions through teller posting, ATM/debit, audio response or online banking during that same day that have hit the member's account.  (This teller warning message does not review cash-only transaction, for example, in the audit key files.)  Follow your credit union's standard procedures for handling these situations. You may need to perform an inquiry into the member's account to review the previous transactions, or contact a supervisor or head teller for assistance.

Field Descriptions



Employee ID / Password

Enter your employee ID and password. The password will appear as asterisks (***).


(Appears after clicking the Use Shared Branching button.) To perform a transaction for a member of a different credit union with which you have a shared branching agreement, enter the credit union ID here. Otherwise, leave the field blank. By default, your credit union will be displayed.

Click the lookup button images\magnifyingglasslookup_shg.gif to view a list of valid credit union IDs.

Account base

Enter the base account number for the member.

Name ID

This field is used to enter the member's two-character Name ID. This field is used in conjunction with the account base for verification so that an incorrect account number is not accidentally entered.

  • This field will only appear if the Device Configuration for your workstation requires Name ID verification.

If the wrong ID is entered, a warning message will appear confirming the correct ID.

0275-Name Id entered is not valid, correct ID is XX.

You will still need to verify that this is the correct account according to the name ID shown.

When I try to access an account on the Account Selection screen, I am seeing the warning message "Name ID entered does not match member" instead of the hint. Where do you go to configure the hint to display?

Process code

This process code is the default for credit unions using the Currently Serving feature. Learn more about Currently Serving and setting this Process Code as your credit union default.

Search Criteria

Learn more about using the search fields (also used on the Global Search screen)
