Do you have a personal account and receive check images?
Printing less is one way to reduce our carbon footprint. Beginning April 1, 2010, check images will no longer be included with your paper statement. If you’re not ready to make the switch and wish to continue receiving check images with your paper statement, contact Customer Care at 800.355.0641 or visit your local banking office. Please note there will be a $2 per month fee to receive check images with your paper statement.
Do you have a business account and receive check images?
Help us reduce our carbon footprint and take the challenge by switching to check safe-keeping. Check images would no longer be included with your statement; instead, we’ll conveniently store seven years of check images for you. Sign up by contacting Customer Care at 800.355.0641 or visit your local banking office.
Please note if you do not change your account by April 1, 2010, to check safe-keeping and continue to receive check images, a per-month charge of $5 will be assessed to your account.
