We strongly encourage you to monitor your bank account carefully and regularly for unauthorized transactions.There have been specific instances that have brought attention to the importance of sound practices to protect your account. Several examples include the “Heartbleed Bug” that affects secure websites, and where debit and credit card information has been obtained; including purchases at Target and Michaels Stores. (Please note that Union Bank’s computer system was not compromised in any way).
Regarding the “Heartbleed Bug” Union Bank immediately assessed our systems and additional security measures were put into place and we continue to monitor the situation. No customer account or transactions were affected.
What We Encourage You To Do
First and foremost, watch your account. Use Online Banking, Mobile Banking, or bank statements to review each of your transactions. If you believe there is an unauthorized transaction on your Union Bank & Trust account, contact your local branch or call 1.800.297.2837 or 402.323.1777 immediately.
It is a good practice to update your Online Banking password every few months. If you have not done so recently, now would be a good time to do so. To change your password, log in to Online Banking and click on the “Options” tab.
