Text Message Banking
What is Text Message Banking?
Text Message Banking is a service provided by your financial institution that allows you to retrieve your account balances and recent transactions anywhere, anytime, just by sending a text message from your mobile phone.
How does it work?
Just text a short command to the designated number, and you will quickly receive the information you want. Here are some of the requests you can make with Text Message Banking:
- BAL — Current and available balances for a primary account you designate
- LAST — The last five transactions in your primary account.
- BAL ALL — Current and available balances for all your checking and savings accounts
Is it secure?

How much does it cost?
The service is free, though message and data rates may apply.
How do I sign up for Text Message Banking?
If your credit union or bank offers Text Message Banking, you can sign up for the service at your financial institution's online banking site. Just login and look for the mobile banking tab.

Terms and Conditions
- Program: Your financial institution offers its end users mobile access to their account information (e.g., for checking balances and recent transactions) over SMS, as well as the option to set up alerts for their accounts. Enrollment requires identification of the user's banking relationship as well as providing a mobile phone number. The mobile phone number's verification is done by the user receiving an MT message with a verification code which they will have to enter on the website. Additionally, customers may select the type of alerts and other preferences which will determine, together with their account data, the frequency of alerts delivered to the customer. This program will be ongoing. Message and data rates may apply. Customers will be allowed to opt out of this program at any time.
- To Stop The Program: To stop the messages coming to your phone, you can opt out of the program via SMS. Just send a text that says "STOP". You'll receive a one-time opt-out confirmation text message. And after that, you will not receive any future messages. You may also opt out of the program online via the Mobile Banking & Alerts tab of your financial institution.
- Deactivating mobile phone number: If you deactivate cellular service for the mobile phone number that you enrolled in the Text Message Banking Service, you are responsible for deactivating that same phone number as described in how To Stop the Program above.
