First Messenger is a feature offered with your Personal Online Banking access. You can receive text messages or emails about your account activity. Would you like to know if your account falls below $100? Do you want to receive an alert every time you get a deposit, or when a check or debit card transaction clears your account? You can even get a notification that your loan payment has posted. We understand that our customers are busy and may forget to call or log in, so let us text or email you.
Available alert templates include real time low balance, current business day checking presentments, checking and savings deposit and withdrawal notices, loan payment due, past due loan payment, and CD interest payment and maturity notices. Choose your own dollar threshold for which you want to be notified.
To get started:
To receive a First Alert to your email, choose Send To Email and type in your email address.
