Online and Mobile Banking allow you to set Date Alerts, Account Alerts, History Alerts, and Transaction Alerts.

When you create an alert, it takes effect immediately and stays in effect until you disable or delete it. You can set an alert to occur immediately. Alert types may vary according to your settings and may include:

  • Date Alerts
  • Account Alerts
  • History Alerts
  • Transactions Alerts
  • Security Alerts

Delivery methods may include:

  • Secure Message Only
  • Email
  • Phone
  • SMS/Text Message

If you miss an alert, you may need to change settings or double-check the Messages inbox. If you don't see an email alert, check your junk email folder. If your alert was delivered there, configure your mail settings to allow messages from our email address.

To create an alert

  2. In the New Alert drop-down list, click or tap the alert type that you want to create. The New Alert page appears.

  3. Click or tap an alert type that triggers the alert.

  4. Enter a message, then click or tap Set.

  5. Select one of the following from the Select a delivery method drop-down list:

    • Click or tap Secure Message Only to send the alert as a Secure Message. The alert is sent immediately when it is generated. You must be logged in to read the alert.

    • Click or tap Email to send the alert as an email. Enter the email address where you want to send the alert. The alert is sent immediately when it is generated.
