3 Simple Ways to Protect Your Checking Account

When it comes to safeguarding your hard-earned cash, you play a key role – and our tools can help. We've created an online banking platform and convenient smartphone app to make it easy for you to manage your money in a safe and secure environment. Here are three simple steps you can take to protect your checking account by using Online and Mobile Banking.

Step 1: Go Paperless

Unfortunately, individuals can gain access to your account or even steal your identity when they get their hands on your banking statements and account information. Lost mail can make this possibility even more likely. By foregoing paper statements, you can eliminate the potential risk. Your eStatements are safe and secure within Online and Mobile Banking and available for review at your convenience for at least seven years. No need to save paper copies. No need to shred.

Step 2: Monitor Your Banking Accounts Weekly

Don't wait until the end of the month to monitor your transactions. With Online and Mobile Banking, it's easier than ever to stay on top of your accounts and manage your money. Log in at your convenience daily or weekly to ensure that all transactions are accurate. If you see anything unusual or that you don't recognize, report it to the credit union promptly.

Step 3: Set Up Text or Email Alerts

For even more convenience, we're watching out for you 24/7 even when you aren't logged into our digital banking platforms. Orange County's Credit Union provides Members like you the option to sign up for text and/or email alerts and be notified whenever there's a change to your account including withdrawals, deposits, and transfers.

We understand that convenience and security are essential when it comes to your money. That's why we offer secure and safe online banking services that allow you to manage your finances on your own time. Deposit checks, pay bills, transfer funds, monitor transactions, and much more from the convenience of your own computer or smartphone. You'll still get the same premium Member service with your very own in-hand personal branch. Enroll online today or download the app from Google Play or the App Store to get started.
