Text Banking

With text banking, you can check your balances, transfer money, see your account history and get notifications. It's fast, and you don't have to say a word or log in.

TEXT BANKING VS TEXT ALERTS

two different options, too good to be true

Text Banking allows you to text us a few basic commands, and we'll text you back corresponding information regarding your account. For example, you can transfer funds from one of your accounts to another without logging into Online Banking by just sending a text message.

Text Alerts are a one-way text from us to you regarding your accounts. You can set up date, account, history, transaction and security alerts within Online Banking. As an example, if you set an account alert to notify you when your balance drops below $100, we'll send you a text alert letting you know every time your account drops below $100. That might help you avoid any unexpected overdrafts!

You will need Online Banking or Mobile Banking to enroll for Text Banking or Text Alerts.  Disclosures will be provided upon service enrollment.
