Lost or Stolen Checks

You will need to sign a stop payment form in order for our staff to place a stop payment on the check(s) in order to protect your account.


We’ll Never Ask for Your Information

We have your information, why would we ask?

If you ever receive a message or voicemail about an issue with your account or your card, we highly recommend you pay very close attention to the message. Our monitoring company will leave a message with a code for you to give them when you call them back. You will then hear a recording with your name and the bank name when you call them back.

The bank does NOT utilize any type of automated system that will prompt you to enter your full account or card number to "reactivate" your card or account. If there is ever a problem with your account or debit card, you will be notified by mail or a personal phone call.

Both bank employees and the monitoring service employees have the ability to look you up by your name, so they will only ask for partial information to confirm your identity, such as the last four digits of your card number or social security number or your mailing address. They will never ask for the security code on the back of your card or for the expiration date. If this information is requested, hang up and contact the bank during normal business hours.
