Access to Citizens Bank accounts blocked by technical glitch

Jasmine Goldband | Trib Total Media
Citizens Bank Downtown Pittsburgh offices Thursday, April 2, 2015.

Citizens Bank customers were unable to access their accounts and transactions weren’t posting as scheduled much of Friday morning because of what the bank described as a processing delay.

Citizens said in social media posts late Friday morning that the processing delay was resolved and all transactions had been posted.

“We’re currently working through access issues impacting mobile and online banking. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this delay,” the bank said on Twitter and Facebook.

The bank alerted customers of the problem before 7 a.m.

“Our technical teams are fully engaged on this issue,” Citizens Bank wrote in a three-sentence statement.

A technical issue two weeks ago prevented the bank from processing some transactions and accessing some online systems.

Citizens is based in Providence, R.I., and has more than 1,100 branches in 11 states, including 330 branches Pennsylvania.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
