Top 5 Reasons to Switch to E-Statements

In a year that’s seen all of us spend more time at home than we anticipated, it only makes sense to try to make things a little less cluttered. That’s just one reason why it makes sense for you to switch to electronic statements from your financial institution. Available at FCB Texas with free online banking, e-statements are convenient, secure, and flexible. Here’s why:

1. Safety first

Accessing statements through your online portal—whether on a computer or mobile device—keeps  them out of the mail, eliminating the risk of paper statements being lost or stolen. That’s no small concern since a stolen statement can be a powerful tool for identity theft.

2. Feel the need… the need for speed

Viewing statements electronically means you don’t have to wait for them to arrive in the mail. You can see your statements up to five days faster when you access them online. Plus, you get an email alert when your e-statement is ready to view, so it’s that much easier to keep track of your account.

3. “Don’t mess with Texas”… or your home!

Switching to electronic statements means one less piece of mail in your box each month. It also means less clutter in the house, fewer envelopes in your trash, and less paper used by your financial institution. That’s good for the planet, good for your community, and good for your home.

4. Your statements, your way

No matter how you like to keep your records, electronic statements can work for you. Electronic records can be accessed on FCB Texas’ website and app for 18 months. If you need access to them beyond that, you can save them to your computer or external physical storage, like a flash drive. And, if you’ve been filing away your paper statements for years, you can still print them out at home and file them (and you won’t even have to unfold them!).

5. When you need to know, now

Having access to electronic statements through your FirstCapital Bank Mobile Money app means that you can double check your payment and deposit history whenever you need to, wherever you are. No digging through file folders in search of the statement you need, just information at your fingertips.

The bottom line: e-statements are e-ffective

At FCB Texas, we’re always looking for ways to make your banking experience better. E-statements offer several improvements at the same time. Learn more about the difference that online banking and e-statements can make for you.
