What account alerts are available to me?

How do I find my full account number?

Sign into your online banking account and find your account number online by going to Account Overview and clicking "Full Account Number".

Where do I find my account transactions?

Sign into your online banking account and find your recent transactions in the “Account Activity” page. You can also use the “Search Transaction” filters to view your transactions by type, date and amount.

How can I activate my debit card?

Once you receive your debit card and PIN, you can either call 1-800-216-4223 or use an ATM to activate the debit card. Please do not attempt to activate your card until you receive your PIN in a separate mail.
