View your complete Provident Credit Union statement online in Account Manager, similar to the way it appears when we mail it to you. Get your statement quicker and view your transactions for the entire statement period in one consolidated layout. View statements from past months too (going back as much as 24 months following your e-Document activation). Plus, you'll be helping the environment by reducing the amount of paper used -- and helping yourself by reducing the amount of paper-based mail you have to deal with at home.
Most members love e-Statements as an alternative to paper statements, not only because they represent less clutter, faster access, and the convenience of reading them from any computer, but also because they are a proscription against identity theft. The majority of identity theft happens offline, such as by people stealing your mail or rummaging through your trash. Read more about how using Provident Credit Union online services helps reduce identity theft.
With e-Statements you receive an e-mail notification when your statement is ready for viewing.
Account Notices are electronic versions (PDFs) of the same letters and notices that Provident previously had to send through the postal system, including:
- Term Share Certificate Maturity Notice
- IRA Certificate Maturity Notice
- Notice of IRA Account Annual Fee
You'll get them faster than if we had to send paper through the mail, and because they are stored securely within Account Manager, they can be conveniently accessed any time, up to 180 days after they are sent out.
We'll notify you by e-mail whenever there is an Account Notice available to view. When you get the e-mail, simply sign on to Account Manager, click on the "e-Documents" tab, and click on the "View Documents" button under the Account Notices heading.
If, when you sign on, you have one or more unread Account Notices, it will say so in the upper left corner of the page—even when you are on other pages of Account Manager—and you can just click on the link there to be taken right to them. For urgent messages, such as notices of overdrawn accounts, that link will be shown against a bright yellow background.
Provident Credit Union knows that security is important to you when it comes to online transactions, and we take every safeguard to protect your accounts. Account Manager supports the latest 128 bit encryption to ensure a secure environment for your account access. Unauthorized access is prevented by limiting the number of incorrect sign on attempts, by automatically ending a session after 25 minutes of inactivity, and more. The safety of your money and information is of primary concern to Provident.
With "Multi-Factor Authentication" we do not rely on just a User ID and password, but also have complex heuristics that determine if there is anything out of the ordinary about your sign on. If there is, we ask you follow-up questions that only you should know the answers to. Plus, before you enter your password, we show you the picture that you picked previously. In this way, you are assured to be on the real Provident site before you reveal your password. More information about this Enhanced Security Sign On can be found here.
Account Manager lets you set a complex User ID and password using numbers, upper & lower case letters, and even punctuation. This greatly decreases the chances that anyone else will ever guess your password.
With our Zero Liability Fraud Protection Guarantee, you can rest assured that in the event your account is compromised, you will not be held accountable for any fraudulent electronic transactions made on your account.
