You can stop your paper statements and start receiving them online. In an effort to increase your security and to reduce paper waste and postage expense, First National Bank Minnesota is giving you the opportunity to enjoy the convenience of eStatements. This feature allows you access to your monthly statements electronically.
Once you sign up for this free service, you will be able to view or download your statement anytime through our Online Banking site. That’s right, one log in provides you access to your account information and statement documents.
Sign up is easy:
- If you are already an Online Banking Customer, after log in you will be prompted to select Accept, Decline, or Ask Me Later for eStatements. If at anytime after selecting Decline or Ask Me Later you want to sign up, just go to User Options and click Edit for eStatement Enrollment.
- If you are not already an Online Banking Customer, go to our home page and click First Time User near the left side of the screen under Online Banking; follow the prompts to finish setting up online banking. After this initial log in, you will be prompted to select Accept, Decline, or Ask Me Later for eStatements. If at anytime after selecting Decline or Ask Me Later you want to sign up, just go to User Options and click Edit for eStatement Enrollment.
At the end of each statement cycle, you will receive an email letting you know your eStatement is ready. Just log in to your online banking account, click on the account number link, go to the Documents link at the top of the window, and click Submit. As each statement cycle passes, your list will grow to a maximum of six months worth of statements. We encourage you to regularly download your statement for long term reference.
This long-term storage (longer than 6 months) of your statements can be done by saving the PDF file to your computer or portable storage device (i.e. CD or USB drive.) To do this, open the statement and select File, Save a Copy and select where you want the file saved.
Helpful Tip: Backing up your saved files on a regular basis is highly recommended. A possible backup method would be to save them on a CD or USB drive and keep it in your Safe Deposit Box at the bank. The annual Safe Deposit rent notice would be a convenient reminder to replace or update your statement backup CD or USB drive.
