More Information & Directions
Receive your statement in your email inbox as soon as they are available. Free of charge to all SPIRE members, eStatements reduce the risk of identity theft and fraud by reducing documentation with your personal and financial information. EStatements are more secure than paper documents and environmentally friendly, as well. You can sign up for eStatements by logging into SPIRE Internet Banking and selecting the Services tab.
Setup email or text alerts for any SPIRE account, Visa® Credit or Debit card. Choose the alerts you want including when your account reaches a minimum balance or you’re close to your credit limit, a transaction is made, and if purchases are made without your card present. You can also turn off your credit card if you feel fraudulent charges are being made.
