Account Balance Service – Our SMS alert service​​​​​​​

Account Balance Service

Get Text Alerts

To help keep you up to date with your account balance we can send you a SMS to let you know when your balance goes above or below an amount you have set yourself.

This will help you know when a payment (such as your salary) is in your account, or when you are getting near a debit balance or an overdraft limit on your account.

There are five types of alerts available:

  1. Your balance is less than an amount set
  2. Your balance is greater than an amount set
  3. Your balance on a chosen day of the week or first day of every month
  4. When there is a debit of more than an amount set
  5. When there is a credit of more than an amount set

You can also receive these alerts by email.
