New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on Feb. 22, 2019) follows:

Reports are pouring in about an outage of sorts at Navy Federal Credit Union. Customers aren’t able to access online banking, and hence complaining about paychecks or direct deposits becoming inaccessible. Some even can’t reach the bank’s customer care.

Here are some reports:

Even the phone lines are reportedly down for some, while for others, it’s too difficult to get connected:

Even ATMs aren’t working for one:

The financial institution says they are aware of the issue and working to fix it:

For what it’s worth, this is the second time in this month that such an outage has hit the Navy Federal systems.

Coming back to the ongoing outage, we’re keeping a close tab on the situation and will be providing real time updates here. So keep checking back.
