  • Select "Manage Alerts".

Receiving an alert simply brings a certain banking activity to your attention. If however, you did not perform the banking activity, please contact YNCU immediately.

There is no charge to members for receiving alerts by email. However, when receiving text message alerts, your wireless carrier may charge. Check with your wireless carrier for details.

Am I guaranteed to receive Alerts sent to me? Expand/Collapse

Alerts cannot be guaranteed to be received because of the potential for an unstable wireless network or internet network in general. These networks are open to service interruptions and you may move out of the service range, which can cause a delay in receiving a test message.

However, you may check the alerts sent to you on the Alerts History page in online banking, which lists all alerts sent within the last 30 days.

Are Alerts available to both Personal and Business members? Expand/Collapse

Yes. All members (both Personal and Business) can utilize this great feature.

Are Alerts subject to a Data Retention Policy? Expand/Collapse

Yes. If you have not logged into online banking within 12 months, your alerts preferences will be deleted as part of our Data Retention Policy, and you will  no longer receive alerts.

However, you can sign back into online banking to sign up to receive alerts once again.
