5 Reasons to Switch to eStatements

By turning on eStatements, you can receive your bank statement in a more cost-effective, secure and environmentally friendly way. We will explore what eStatements are and how switching could benefit you.

What are eStatements?

An eStatement, or electronic statement, represents a paperless alternative to a traditional paper statement. This is fueled by more efficiency, security and eco-consciousness for managing financial information. eStatements offers a convenient and accessible way for individuals to receive and review their banking information through digital platforms like email, online or our mobile application.

Why Switch to eStatements?

Access your Statement Faster

View your statement at any time and access it through email, online or mobile app. No need to keep track of past statements and maintain a filing system. With eStatements, you can view current and past statements online whenever you need them, providing immediate access to your financial information.

Cost Effective

Avoid monthly fees associated with paper statements. Getting paper statements means an additional cost taken out of your account every month. When you sign up for eStatements the $5 paper statement fee will be avoided!

More Secure

Electronic statements are often more secure than paper statements, which can be lost or stolen. This helps eliminate the risk of someone gaining access to your personal information through mail theft. With fraud increasing, your personal information is more important than ever, and eStatements provide an extra layer of security.
