Anytime. Anywhere.

With Text Banking you can accomplish most simple banking tasks from the comfort of your own home (or on the go) using only your cell phone.

Simple and convenient

Just text us! There is no need to remember a login or password when you use text banking. You can text us from anywhere when you have a cell phone signal.1

Communicate with your account

Need to know your balance or transfer money between accounts? We’ve got you covered. Not sure what command to use? All you need to do is text “HELP” to 226563.

No data? No problem!

Our Text Banking service uses your phone plan’s texts to handle your banking needs, which means if you are out of data or don’t have a strong connection, you aren’t separated from your money.
