Email and Text Alerts

When it comes to your money, account alerts are a simple way to manage your accounts on the go and help you avoid surprises. When there’s activity on an account, you’ll know about it via email or text*, without having to sign in to Online Banking or Associated Mobile Banking.

Stay a few steps ahead by setting up customizable account alerts. To get started, sign in to Online Banking, click the Alerts tab and then Set Up a New Alert. From this screen, you can customize your alert preferences. Here are some examples of the alerts that are available.

Transaction Alerts
Deposit Made Sent when a deposit exceeds your specified amount.
Overdraft Protection Transfer Made Sent after an Overdraft Protection Transfer has been made. Tip: use one of the Low Balance Threshold alerts to help prevent your available balance from falling below zero.
Transaction Exceeded Threshold Sent when a transaction exceeds your specified threshold.
Transaction Posted Sent when a transaction of a specific value posts to your account.
Scheduled Transaction History Update Sends your transaction history at a specified frequency. Text and email alerts will contain the last three transactions.

Withdrawal Made Sent when a withdrawal exceeds your specified amount.
Balance Alerts
Above Balance Threshold Sent when your available balance goes above your specified amount.

Low Balance Threshold with Transfer Option Same as the Low Balance Threshold Alert above, but also allows you to reply via text message to transfer funds.
