A one‐time secure access code is a randomly generated one‐time code we provide for you. You will enter the code to help prevent fraudulent transactions and unauthorized access to your accounts and financial information. Please remember, we will never call, email or text to request your one-time secure access code, PIN, Social Security number, password or User ID.
Using a one‐time secure access code is easy! A one‐time code is sent to you by a call or text message using phone numbers you have on record with us. Please remember you will need to be near your phone and the number you use must correspond to the current numbers we have on file for you. Once you receive the code, you'll be prompted to enter the one‐time security code to complete your login. You do not need to save the code.

Zelle is a fast, safe and easy way to send money directly between almost any bank accounts in the U.S., typically within minutes.1 With just an email address or U.S. mobile phone number, you can send money to people you trust, regardless of where they bank.2 Johnson Financial Group does not charge any fees to use Zelle and can be accessed with MyJFG online and mobile banking.
Zelle is a great way to send money to family, friends and others you trust.2
Since money is sent directly from your bank account to another person's bank account within minutes,1 it's important to only send money to people you trust, and always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.
Neither Zelle, nor Johnson Financial Group, offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle - for example, if you do not receive the item you paid for or the item is not as described as you expected. If you have never met the person or aren't sure you will get what you paid for, we recommend you do not use Zelle as a payment.
You can send, request, or receive money with Zelle. To get started, log into MyJFG online or mobile banking, select from the Menu, Transfers & Payments, and then select Send Money with Zelle. Enter your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, receive a one‐time verification code, enter it, accept terms and conditions, and you're ready to start sending and receiving with Zelle.
To send money using Zelle, simply select someone from your existing Zelle contacts (or add a trusted recipient's email address or U.S. mobile phone number), add the amount you'd like to send and an optional note, review, then hit “Send.” In most cases, the money is available to your recipient in minutes.1
To request money using Zelle, choose “Request,” select the individual(s) from whom you'd like to request money, enter the amount you'd like to request, include an optional note, review and hit “Request.”3
To receive money, just share your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number with a friend and ask them to send you money with Zelle.
If you have already enrolled with Zelle, you do not need to take any further action. The money will move directly into your bank account, typically within minutes.1
If you have not yet enrolled with Zelle, follow these steps:
- Click on the link provided in the payment notification you received via email or text message.
- Select Johnson Financial Group.
- Follow the instructions provided on the page to enroll and receive your payment. Pay attention to the email address or U.S. mobile phone number where you received the payment notification—you should enroll with Zelle using that email address or U.S. mobile phone number to ensure you receive your money.
You can find a full list of participating banks and credit unions live with Zelle here.
If your recipient's bank isn't on the list, don't worry! The list of participating financial institutions is always growing, and your recipient can still use Zelle by downloading the Zelle app for Android and iOS.
To enroll with the Zelle app, your recipient will enter their basic contact information, an email address and U.S. mobile number, and a Visa® or Mastercard® debit card with a U.S. based account (does not include U.S. territories). Zelle does not accept debit cards associated with international deposit accounts or any credit cards.
When you enroll with Zelle through MyJFG, your name, the name of your bank, and the email address or U.S. mobile phone number you enrolled is shared with Zelle (no sensitive account details are shared—those stay with Johnson Financial Group). When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number, Zelle looks up the email address or mobile phone number in its “directory” and notifies Johnson Financial Group of the incoming payment. Johnson Financial Group then directs the payment into your bank account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private.
In order to use Zelle, the sender and recipient's bank accounts must be based in the U.S.
If your recipient has not yet enrolled with Zelle, the payment will remain pending and the money will not move from your account. If the recipient does not enroll within 14 days, the payment will expire, and the transaction will need to be made again.
If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle, the money is sent directly to their bank account and cannot be canceled. This is why it's important to only send money to people you trust, and always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number when sending money.
If you sent money to the wrong person, we recommend contacting the recipient and requesting the money back. Neither Zelle, nor Johnson Financial Group, offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle.
Money sent with Zelle is typically available to an enrolled recipient within minutes.1
If you send money to someone who isn't enrolled with Zelle, they will receive a notification prompting them to enroll. After enrollment, the money will move directly to your recipient's account, typically within minutes.1
If your payment is pending, we recommend confirming that the person you sent money to has enrolled with Zelle and that you entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.
If you're waiting to receive money, you should check to see if you've received a payment notification via email or text message. If you haven't received a payment notification, we recommend following up with the sender to confirm they entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.
Still having trouble? Please call the Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center at 888.769.3796.
The short code for Zelle notifications is 20736.
Your email address or U.S. mobile phone number may already be enrolled with Zelle at another bank or credit union. If you receive a message that says you are already linked to a different financial institution, you'll need to choose to use a different email address or U.S. mobile phone number or transfer your email address or U.S. mobile phone number to MyJFG online or mobile banking. Zelle only allows an email address or U.S. mobile phone number to be enrolled at one financial institution at a time. Please call the Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center at 888.769.3796 for assistance.

After you receive the Deposit Approval Notification via email, we recommend you securely store the original item for 10 Business Days after transmission to us.

After destruction of the original Item, the image will be the sole evidence of the original Item.
