Account Alerts

Receive free timely notifications via email or text messages sent to your cell phone that alert you to information you need to manage your finances. 

Stay informed about your checking and/or savings account with our alerts feature – which is one of the services offered through Online Banking. Alerts can help you prevent late or overdraft fees, so be sure to keep your email up-to-date.

Typical account alerts include the following options:

  • Account balance falls below a specified amount
  • Account balance rises above a specified amount
  • Specified check number clears
  • Transaction over the given amount occurs
  • Direct deposit is made to an account
  • Daily notification of current account balance

It's easy to set up and it's free*:

1.   Click “New” in the “Messages” section found on the account list page and your checking and/or savings account balance pages.

2.    For each account (if you have multiple accounts) determine which alerts you wish to add and follow the prompts to choose how you would like your alert delivered (email or text message)

  • For email alerts – simply provide your email address
  • For text message alerts– refer to the chart below for your cell phone provider
