Benefits of Account Alerts
Custom alerts let you know when your account has gone below the threshold that you have set so that you can better manage your money.
Peace of Mind
Daily balance alerts, suspicious activity alerts, and more help you keep a pulse on your account at all times.
Receive reminders when your payments are due and more straight to your mobile device.
Types of Account Alerts
When you enroll in Account Alerts, there are some alerts you’ll get automatically—no set up necessary! These include Bill Payment, Online Security and Credit/Debit/ATM Suspicious Activity alerts.
You’ll be notified for things like payee updates, payment cancellations, undeliverable e-bills and other alerts related to bill or e-bill payments.
You’ll receive notification of user name or password changes, contact information updates, bank messages and other alerts related to general online security.
If we suspect your Credit/Debit/ATM card is compromised, it will be turned off while we send you a text message to confirm whether a purchase is yours. Reply "yes" and your card will be turned back on. Reply “no” and we will shut down your card and send you a new one.
