Will the New USPS Delivery Schedule Delay Your Banking?

Here are 2 quick things you can do to help ensure you’re on time.

In October, the United States Post Office (USPS) announced longer delivery times for some types of First-Class Mail. That means it could take a few extra days for your bills to get to the right place. It may also take you a bit longer to receive paper statements from us.

Timely updates on your transactions are crucial when it comes to effectively managing your accounts – and keeping fraud at bay. Here are two easy ways to use Digital Banking to avoid banking delays:

  1. Pay bills online.
    Avoid worrying about late fees by paying bills through your Digital Banking account. Our online bill pay feature is quick, easy and secure. If you ever come close to your due date, you can rest assured knowing an electronic payment is typically posted within two business days. You can also set up automatic payments to help you stay on top of monthly expenses, like your car, mortgage or loans.

  2. Sign up for eStatements
    With eStatements, you can get your statements as soon as they become available.

    Follow these easy steps to opt into eStatements:
                  1.  Log in to online banking
                  2.  Click “Alerts and Preferences”
                  3.  Select “Statement Delivery”
                  4.  Click “Delivery Type”
