How you can help us protect your confidential information:
- Never disclose your account number, Social Security number or financial data to anyone by phone or email. Only provide information when you initiate the call and know the person or company you are dealing with.
- The Bank or any state or federal financial agency would never contact or email a consumer requesting important personal information such as your name, Social Security number, account number, password or other information. If you receive suspicious phone inquiries or emails of this nature please notify us immediately. The best defense against unauthorized access to your accounts is to protect your password. Never disclose your password to anyone. Do not carry it in your wallet, or write it on your computer or anywhere where it may be easily found.
- Do not leave your computer unattended when using the online service. Log off any application when you finish using them.
- Do not use common names, words, dates or numbers for passwords. i.e. do not use your name, birth date, Social Security number, words like computer, password, or words found in the dictionary.
- Review your monthly bank statement(s) and credit card statement(s) for accuracy as soon as you receive them.
- Never discard financial statements, ATM receipts, credit card receipts, debit cards, unsolicited credit cards received in the mail, before physically destroying them, i.e. shredding, cutting, burning, etc.
