Are you making the most of online banking?

Perhaps you've started using online banking to check the balances on your accounts or see a record of your transactions; but, you may not be aware of all the ways NetBanking can make your life even easier. Did you know in addition to paying bills online and viewing a year's worth of statements, you can create budgets and track your spending, as well as set helpful alerts and reorder checks? Our NetBanking features can help you simplify your life — so you can spend more time living it.

 If you've ever wished for a way to reduce your stack of mail, sign up for E-Statements to view bank statements online. E-Statements are stored electronically so you can look back at previous statements (up to 12 months) easily – no more searching through stacks of papers.

Online bill pay. 
Use online bill pay to pay your bills from the convenience of your home. This can remove the need to physically write checks and mail out your bills, saving paper, stamps and time. And best of all, it's free!*

Email/Text/Phone alerts. 
Alert yourself when your account details change, when particular transactions occur, or simply as a reminder of important dates or events. Alerts can be delivered by email, phone, text, and secure message notification, so no matter where you are, you’ll be in the know!

Online financial planning. 
Take advantage of MyMoney Center, our powerful online financial planning tool, and easily and quickly know exactly what your money is doing. With just a few clicks, you can safely manage and budget your finances online from the comfort of your home or office.

Reorder checks. 
Reordering checks from your home is completely hassle-free (and you can even do it from your couch.) Just use our handy hyperlink under the Services tab, and you’ll be directed to our preferred check vendor. By sharing just a few bits of information, you’ll soon have your new checks on their way to you!

Address change. 
Update your address and other contact information right from your home, instead of having to go into a branch. Simply choose “Address Change” under the Services tab and you can easily update your address for each of your accounts.
