Mobile Text (... if you don't use a Smartphone)
You text us and we will text you back.
Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging provides account-specific information (such as available balance and transaction history) to a customer's mobile device and to the financial institution account. SMS works on all phones supporting text message commands. Applications (“Apps”) and data plans are not required. SMS uses simple text commands and works with most U.S. mobile service carriers. There are no product logins or passwords. Mobile Banking customers retrieve account information such as:
- Account balances
- Recent transaction history
You can also receive text alerts on selected banking transactions by texting short phrases to a five-digit financial institution number, which is included in your activation text message.
For Text Banking, Online Banking enrollment is first necessary. Once enrolled, text one of the following commands to short code 99588 to receive account information directly to your mobile.
BAL -- For accounts and balances
HIST + Account Nickname (e.g., HIST SAV1) -- For specific account
ATM + Street or ZIP (e.g., ATM 54615)
BRANCH + Street or ZIP (e.g. BRANCH 54642)
