Online Banking Alerts

Use Alert notifications to assist you in avoiding unexpected fees or interest charges when your personal deposit account balance1 or available credit1 drops below $100, or an amount you specify, and to identify unusual activity to more rapidly prevent and detect fraud activities from occurring with your account.

Ways we protect you:

Sending You Automated Account Activity Alerts

Alerts allow you to receive email and/or text message notifications when certain account activities occur. While balance and account information can be viewed in the Alerts message, no personal information, account numbers or any data that could be used to identify accounts or customers is sent, which provides a high level of protection.

  • Security Alerts provide an additional layer of protection by notifying you of unusual transactions allowing you to detect possible fraud quickly and take appropriate action.

  • Balance Alerts can help you better manage your finances and budget by knowing when your accounts balance or available credit falls below a certain $ amount.

Note: There is no fee to sign up for Alerts and no fee to receive them.  However, your mobile phone service provider may charge you for receiving text messages and for data usage.
