Banking Safety


Your finances are one of the most important parts of your life. Keep them safe.
  • Balance and check your account statements early and often. With online branch channels, you can check your accounts everyday if needed. 
  • Keep your receipts, and always write down all transactions made and checks written. Make sure to use exact amounts! "Rounding" may only cause more problems when an error does occur. 
  • Notify the bank of any errors you notice as soon as possible.
  • When disposing of old papers with financial details or personal information make sure they are shredded first.
  • Only deal with companies and businesses you trust.
  • Always be completely aware of all agreements you enter into regarding automated deposits, withdrawals, and funds collection with any group or business, online and off.
  • Always write checks in blue or black ink, never other colors or pencil. Do not use “gel pens” as well.
  • Always notify the bank as soon as possible when changing names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and mailing addresses.
  • Always be extra cautious if you are traveling outside the country, and notify the bank where and when you will be traveling.
  • Always be wary of giving out personal and financial information out over the phone or online.
  • Never post date a check.
  • Never pre-sign a check or withdrawal slip.
  • For important papers and cherished items, consider acquiring a safe deposit box.
  • Be prepared for the future: Make provisions for your all your finances in case of ill-health or death.
