Why does Premier America Credit Union want members to sign up for eStatements?
Going paperless helps prevent identity theft; is good for the environment; and reduces the expense associated with processing and delivering paper statements.
Are eStatements secure?
eStatements are more secure than paper statements which can get lost, stolen or damaged in the mail. eStatements are only available with a Member Number, PIN and computer authentication. Online Banking uses advanced, industry-recognized security safeguards to keep information safe. With the addition of multi-factor authentication we have the security in place to give you peace of mind.

Effective November 30, 2013, there is a $2 monthly fee for each paper statement sent.

You can avoid the fee simply by switching to free eStatements.
Will I continue to receive paper statements if I sign up for eStatements?
No, eStatements replaces the paper statement.
What if I need a printed copy of my statement?
You can print and/or save your eStatements for the last 18 months. To order a paper statement, send us an email from within Online Banking or call our Member Service Specialists at 800-772-4000 or 818-772-4000. There is a fee per request.

We are required by law to provide you with notification that your eStatement is available. If the email notification we send to you is returned as "Undeliverable," for whatever reason, we then attempt to notify you via U.S. mail.
