Perhaps you’ve seen the signs without thinking of the solution…

The US Postal Service is struggling with financial issues that threaten its ability to deliver on weekends and drive up the cost of postage. You’ve heard of mail theft, stolen by fraudsters to collect your business or personal information that can lead to the use of your identity by others — maybe even sold to the highest bidder internationally through an unscrupulous website. These are the signs of a growing problem, but what is the solution to protecting your account information of all types?

Utilizing e-Statements through Business Banking Online is the safest route to your bank account information.  e-Statements (electronic statements) eliminate the threat of identity theft from your mailbox and paper files, and provides 18 months of statements at your fingertips. You’ll receive your electronic statements before paper statements are even mailed-within one day of their production. The statement can be printed or saved to your computer’s hard drive or network storage, making it easy to share a statement with an auditor or staff member.  You’ll receive email notification from us each month on the day your statement is available. No more waiting by a physical mail box for “snail mail”, or saving boxes of paper copies. Now you can gain access to your account information securely whenever it conventient for you…and it can save valuable resources.
