The Benefits of eStatement

Take your online banking to the next level with e-Statements. These electronic documents replace and improve your paper statements with added convenience and security benefits—which means less worry for you.

“E-Statements provide fast, safe, and secure delivery and storage,” says Lori Tiede, e-Services specialist at Plains Commerce Bank. “I can always find my statement when I need it, and I have less clutter around the house.”

Interested? Check out eight more reasons why you should use e-Statements.

1. Immediate Availability

View your statements as soon as they become available, rather than waiting for them to be printed and mailed. You’ll receive an email notifying you when your statement is ready and waiting.

2. Convenient Access

On the go? No problem. Access your statements whenever and wherever you want, whether you’re at work, at a coffee shop, or on your couch. Gain access with your laptop, desktop, tablet, or mobile device.  

3. Increased Security

Protect your information from being stolen or delivered to the wrong address. Secured by your online login credentials, your statements can only be accessed by you.

4. Constant Availability

Going off the grid? Download e-Statements on your computer, tablet, or mobile device and save them for offline viewing and, if needed, printing.

5. Simple Sign-Up

Receiving e-Statements couldn’t be easier—simply check the opt-in box when you sign up for online banking. If you already have an online account and haven’t chosen e-Statements, you’ll find the opt-in checkbox under the “Options” tab in your account.

6. Eco-friendly

Replacing your multi-page paper statement with an electronic version saves trees and reduces greenhouse gases associated with paper manufacturing, printing, and mail transportation.

7. Less Headache

Never misplace your statements again. Your online account acts as a virtual filing cabinet, so you’ll always know your documents’ exact location.

8. Reduced Clutter

Give yourself less paperwork to sort through. Electronic delivery means you’ll have less clutter in your mailbox—and shredder.

Your time and resources are valuable. That’s why we work tirelessly toward making your banking experience as simple and convenient as possible. Switch to e-Statements and put the power of accessing your account statements—anytime, anywhere—right in your palm.
