Online Banking Upgrade

Why are you changing Online Banking?

In order to enhance your Online Banking experience, we’ve made improvements to the log in screen, redesigned the navigation and enhanced the user experience for transactions and transfers.

Is the Username the same as my Access ID?

Yes. The Access ID is now called Username. You will enter your existing Access ID into the Username field on the home page of SouthStateBank.com to access Online Banking.

Why was I prompted to enter my email address?

If you were prompted to enter an email address, this indicates we do not have an email address for you in our Online Banking records. In order to keep you updated about your account, an email address is now required for Online Banking access.

What does “Hide” and “Show” mean?

You now have the option to “Hide” or “Show” information as you are answering security questions and entering private information, such as Account Numbers or SSNs, during the login and enrollment processes.

What is a one-time passcode?

During the login process, you can choose to enter a one-time passcode as your Security Challenge rather than answering a Challenge Question. The passcode will be emailed to the address we have on file for you. Once you receive the email, enter the code on the Security Challenge page to access Online Banking.

How often will I receive the Security Challenge?

Every time you log in from a new or different location or device, you will have to answer a security challenge question or enter the one-time passcode. You also have the option to check “Do not challenge me on this device.”
