Alerts and Notifications

Want to know when your checking account balance is low?  When a large transaction posts to your account?

You can sign up for free* Account Alerts in DFCU OnLine for better money management on the go.  We'll send you alerts throughout the day as activity occurs that meet the criteria you establish for your accounts. 

Balance Alerts help you monitor accounts balances.  You can set up an alert to tell you when your balance on a particular account is above or below a certain dollar amount.

Transaction Alerts help you monitor transactions on your accounts.  You can pick transactions of an exact dollar amount, transactions below, or above a certain dollar amount or transactions of any dollar amount.  For example, you can be alerted when debit card transactions posts to your account, when your direct deposit is available, or when a large check or withdrawal posts.
