VyStar Credit Union is still working to resolve issues with its mobile app and online banking after a system update over the weekend.
The company informed members for several weeks of a planned update that would prevent members from accessing online and mobile banking, but the outage has lasted two days longer than anticipated.

In a statement, the company thanked members for their continued patience and said its working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
VyStar also said that there have been reports of loan balances and some transactions not showing up online for some members, but said balance and transaction information is safe and accurate on its core systems and can be accessed via Magic Touch, ATMs, call center & branches.
