Additional Information

What's changing?

  • Ease of use: Direct Connect allows you access to accounts with multiple Tax Identification Numbers (TIN) under one login

FAQs

What is PC Home Banking?
PC Home Banking began being offered to M&T Bank Customers in 1997 as a way of connecting Intuit’s Quicken/QuickBooks with M&T Bank accounts. PC Home Banking allows customers to sync their M&T Bank accounts with Intuit products, and utilizes a non-M&T bill pay platform, without the necessity of online banking. Due to this outdated form of connectivity, account synchronization and bill payments are processed on at least a one business day lag.

What is Direct Connect?
Direct Connect is an updated form of connection between M&T Online Banking and Intuit products from its predecessor, PC Home Banking. The upgrade from PC Home Banking to Direct Connect allows information to flow in and out of M&T Online Banking, which eliminates any delay in account synchronization in regard to balance and/or transactional information. The use of Direct Connect also allows for bill payments to flow through M&T Online and Mobile Bill Pay.

How do I confirm if I am using PC Home Banking or Direct Connect?
If you aren’t sure what connection source you are currently using, you may confirm by checking your banking feed within Quicken/QuickBooks. “M&T Bank – OLD” indicates you’re using PC Home Banking and action is needed. “M&T Bank – Direct Connect” indicates you’re already using Direct Connect as your connection and no further action is needed. If help is needed to identify, please call the Contact Center 1-877-320-9298.

How do I transition from PC Home Banking to Direct Connect?
Two methods of transition are currently being offered. You may use the Transition PDFs (see links above) to complete manually or you may call the Contact Center at 1-877-320-9298 for a phone-assisted transition process.

What are the fees associated with Direct Connect?
For existing PC Home Banking customers, all fees associated with Direct Connect are being waived.

When does the transition need to be completed?
The transition process must be completed by November 1, 2017 to prevent interruption in service. Transition after this date may expose you to missing transactions.
