Six Reasons to Switch to eStatements

Published July 7, 2021

Your eStatements work similarly to paper statements, except for the fact that they’re delivered electronically. At the end of each statement period, you’ll get an email from your credit union informing you that your eStatement is ready to view through the online app or another secure means. Once you access the eStatement, you’ll find it has all the information you’re used to getting with your paper statements. You can also access your eStatement by logging into your online banking site or app at any time throughout the month.
Here are six reasons to consider switching to eStatements.

1. Check your accounts at a glance
With eStatements, there’s no need to wait for your monthly statement to arrive in the mail. With just a few clicks, you can check your account balance at any time, anywhere, using the mobile device of your choice.

2. Clear out the clutter
Why bother with piles of paperwork when you can access your accounts digitally? It’s neater, cleaner, and helps cut down on stuff flooding your mailbox.

3. Keep your information safer
With eStatements, you’ll never have to worry about losing a paper that has confidential banking information, or mistakenly tossing it into the trash where it can be nabbed by shady peeps.

4. Monitor your accounts for fraud
When you have instant access to your accounts throughout the month, it’s a lot easier to check for signs of fraud. Plus, when you spot the fraud sooner, you can take steps to stop and fix the damage earlier, giving you a better chance of a full recovery.

5. Eco-friendly
Less paper statements means less paper waste and fewer trees getting felled for something that will ultimately be tossed. Go green for the environment with eStatements!

6. Safe and secure storage
Filing cabinets are so last century. With eStatements, you’ll never stress about misplacing your account statements again. Your online banking portal or app acts as a convenient and secure filing cabinet, storing your account statements for access as needed.
