Online Banking Alerts

Setting up online banking alerts may help in avoiding online banking fraud.

Setting up alerts and reminders in online banking will notify you of important account information and personal reminders based on your selected preferences. 

After logging into your online banking account, click to open the "Alerts" page under the Preferences section.  There are four sections you can set up; general account, date, history, and transaction alerts.  There are additional alerts specific to the security of your login information located under the Preferences section "Security" page, Alerts tab. 

Alerts can be delivered to you in the following ways:

  1. Secure Message Notification - an alert will always be delivered to your secure mailbox under the Services > Messages menu. In the case that you fail to receive an email, or miss a notification phone call, you can always confirm and review your alerts in your secure mailbox.  
  2. Email Notification - an email notification will be sent when your alert triggers.  
  3. Phone Notification - you can receive a phone call from our voice banking system when your alert triggers. If you choose to receive a phone call, you should enter the desired time you want to receive the call any day the alert triggers.  
  4. Text Message Notification (if applicable) - a text message will be sent to your mobile device. Note: You may be charged for text messages depending on your mobile plan.

Here is a listing of the alert functions available through the online banking system.
