Notice:
On September 15, 2017, a new rule from the Electronic Payments Association (NACHA) goes into effect, and electronic debits will be eligible for same day processing. What will this mean for you? Companies may begin processing your electronic payments faster, and converted checks may post to your account the same day that you write them.

We advise that checks only be written or payments scheduled when sufficient funds are in your account to avoid NSF fees and returned payments. Float times will be dramatically reduced or eliminated completely.

In order to check balances and other account information anytime, please ask a Customer Service Representative how you can sign up for free online banking, the mobile app or CATS (Customer Activated Telebank System).

Scam of the Week

Hidden Dangers of HTML Attachments
KnowBe4

Internet criminals never stop trying to get past your spam filters and trick you into clicking on phishing links or opening malicious email attachments. This is a warning against a new type of attack that uses an HTML attachment which tries to scam you into entering your user name and password. HTML attachments are often used by banks for secure messages, so you might think that these are always safe. They are NOT. If you get an email with an HTML attachment, be just as careful as always and do not open it unless you have asked for it, or have verified with the sender that the attachment is legitimate. Always remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!” Think Before You Click!
