A. Since Health Savings and Money Market accounts have check writing abilities they are considered checking accounts on our system.
Q. Why did I receive two alerts for the same transaction?
A. You may receive two alerts for the same transaction due to how the transaction posts to your account. One alert is for pre-authorization of the transaction, and the second alert is when the transaction actually posts to your account. Should you have questions regarding a double alert, review your account information through Online Banking or Mobile Banking to be sure the transaction posted to your account correctly.
Q. I paid several bills using Bill Pay, why does my alert text message only show one payment?
A. Text message alerts only give a snapshot of information due to size and spacing. For this purpose when payments are made at the same time, the text message will only reflect one payment – even though the entire amount of all payments was actually taken from your account. Email alerts contain much more detail and we suggest you also sing up to receive email alerts for this purpose.
