JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As online and mobile banking continues to be offline, VyStar Credit Union is opening some of its branches on Sunday to help customers.

VyStar members have struggled to get information on their accounts for more than a week after a planned outage was unexpectedly extended.

A VyStar executive told News4JAX on Friday that there is no timeframe for when the issue will be fixed, but they’re working around the clock to resolve the issues.

Typically the VyStar branches are closed on Sunday, but the credit union is opening 19 of its branches, it said in an email to customers on Saturday.

The credit union says everyone’s money and transactions are secure, but customers are complaining of inconvenience and sometimes inconsistent information.

Many have shared their concerns with News4JAX, and one suggested customers start lodging complaints with the Office of Financial Regulation and the National Credit Union Administration.

“We will continue to monitor and may extend the fee waiver period, if needed,” CEO Brian Wolfburg and VyStar’s Senior Leadership Team said in the email. “Please know your accounts, balances and transactions have remained safe and secure throughout the conversion, and they should now accurately reflect what is on our core systems. In addition, direct deposits and other transactions were successfully processed in members’ accounts. We are working diligently to get online access up as soon as possible. We recognize this is not the experience you have come to expect from us. We are committed to making things right and ensuring future experiences are what we and our members have come to expect from VyStar.”
