Benefits of Online Statements
You already have 10,000 things to keep up with, so eliminating a bulky envelope up to a dozen times each year will lighten the load when you sort through piles of new mail. Going paperless also means you’ll never toss it in the junk pile by mistake.
Because online statements don’t require time to print and prepare for mailing, or spend time travelling in the back of a mail truck, you should be able to see your statements several days earlier than those sent via the postal service.
Forget constantly wondering if you need to check your mailbox or P.O. box. Once your statement is available online, we’ll send you a message to let you know you can view, print, or download it.
Manage your statements the way you want. You can either view them online whenever it’s convenient for you, save them to your computer for permanent electronic archive, or print them and file them in hard-copy form if you prefer organizing that way.
By viewing your statements online, you eliminate the chance that someone will steal your personal financial information out of the mail on its journey to you. A significant percentage of fraudulent activity still takes place from mail theft.
You can quickly find what you want to examine in your accounts. Just select the monthly statement you want to review (as far back as seven years) and presto—your account activity for that time period is right in front of you.
Conserving natural resources has never been more important than it is today. By choosing to go paperless, you are saving trees, reducing chemical usage, and lowering your carbon footprint associated with paper manufacturing, printing, and statement transportation.
