Use our Account Alerts to stay on top of your finances.

Some of the most effective tools available to you to manage your finances efficiently are account alerts. These timely notifications can significantly enhance your financial well-being and provide peace of mind.

1. Stay Informed:

Account alerts keep you informed about all the critical activities related to your finances. Whether it's an incoming deposit, a large withdrawal, or a low balance warning, you'll be notified via email or text message. This instant information ensures that you are always aware of what's happening with your money.

2. Prevent Fraud and Unauthorized Transactions:

One of the most significant advantages of account alerts is their role in safeguarding your finances against fraud and unauthorized activities. By setting up alerts for large transactions or unusual account behavior, you can quickly detect any suspicious activity and report it to us. This proactive approach can save you from potential financial losses and protect your hard-earned money.

3. Never Miss a Payment:

Late payments can lead to unnecessary fees and negatively impact your credit score. Account alerts can act as helpful reminders for upcoming bill payments, ensuring you never miss a due date. Set up alerts for recurring bills or custom payment schedules, and stay on top of your financial responsibilities effortlessly.

4. Monitor Account Balances:

With account alerts, you can keep a close eye on your account balances, helping you avoid overdrafts and low balance situations. Whether you want to receive alerts for specific balance thresholds or daily balance summaries, this feature provides a valuable snapshot of your financial health.

5. Track Savings Goals:

Working towards specific financial goals becomes more manageable with account alerts. You can set up alerts to monitor your progress toward saving targets, such as vacation funds, emergency savings, or down payments. Celebrate milestones as you reach your goals faster and stay motivated throughout your financial journey.

6. Easier Budgeting:

Maintaining a budget is essential for financial success. Account alerts can complement your budgeting efforts by notifying you of expenses that exceed specific budget categories. This helps you identify areas where you may be overspending and make necessary adjustments to stay on track.

Incorporating bank account alerts into your financial routine can be a game-changer. From keeping you informed, to protecting you from fraudulent activities and assisting in budgeting, these alerts empower you to make informed decisions about your money.

A new look to your ALEC statements

We are excited to announce that we launched an updated version of our account statements in July to include color design, and we wanted to share the benefits of this new format with you.

Our new color account statements are designed to be more visually appealing and user-friendly. The addition of color will help to highlight important information and make it easier for you to quickly find what you're looking for. Whether you're checking your balance or reviewing your transaction history, our new format will make it easier and more enjoyable to manage your finances.

In addition to the improved aesthetics, our new color account statements also offer a number of practical benefits. For example, the use of color can help you identify trends in your spending habits, which can be useful in creating a budget or setting financial goals. It can also help you detect any unusual activity on your account, such as unauthorized transactions or errors.

Our new color account statements will provide you with a more engaging and efficient account experience. If you have any questions or concerns about your account, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for trusting us to be your financial partner. We look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.
