It certainly is! Text banking can only be activated by account owners by logging in to your secure online banking account and verifying your mobile phone. Rest assured that messages will never contain confidential information about you or your accounts, including your full account numbers.
It’s easy! Just follow a few simple steps:
Log in to online banking and select text banking from the “Profile/Settings” menu. Register the mobile number we have on file for you or enter a new mobile phone number. Agree to the terms and conditions, then click “Register.”
We will send you a text message with a unique activation code that you’ll need to enter to complete the process. (This ensures that it’s your phone number and it’s in your possession.) Once verified, select the accounts you would like to use with text banking. Be sure to designate your main account as the primary.
Now with your phone set up, simply send a text command to 77592 whenever you want, and we’ll send the response right back to your phone. (It’s just like texting your friends!) Here’s a quick list of some of the common requests you can text:
