You can set up alert notifications in Online Banking. On the menu, select ‘Services‘ and click ‘Alerts’. To set up a new alert, click ‘New Alert’. There are several different alert types you can set up:

  • Account alerts – get notified when your balance goes above or below a specified amount
  • History alerts – get notified when credits or debits post to your account
  • Online transaction alerts – get notified when online activity occurs like a funds transfer
For cards, the most common alert type is to get notified when a transaction posts. This can be done by setting up a History alert. Select the transaction type (debit/credit) and transaction amount you want to be notified about. For example, if you only want to know about purchases over $100, you can specify this amount or if you want to know about every transaction, you can choose to get alerts for purchases more than $0.01.

You can securely reorder checks in Online Banking. In your account, go to the 'Services' tab and select 'Check Reorder'. Checks may also be ordered from our Member Care Center, at any of our branch locations or by calling 800.Deluxe1.

Please contact our Member Care Center 888.493.4328 or stop by a branch location. Select cards can be instantly issued at a Georgia United branch location while others may need to be issued by mail.
