Almost everywhere you look, you find people actively trying to ‘go green’. Kids are reminded to turn off the lights when they leave the room and you see more and more adults carrying canvas totes into the grocery store. Changing our habits to be ‘more green’ can be both rewarding and challenging.
Have you decided to go green financially? Ask yourself….
- Do you receive your monthly statements electronically or through the mail?
- Have you signed up for Direct Deposit to avoid pay stubs and checks?
- Are you using Online Banking and Bill Pay?
EStatements help save time, space and trees as well as protect your personal information from being lost or stolen through the mail. An email notifying you that your statement is ready is sent the day the statement becomes available, arriving quicker than any mailed statement possibly could. Electronic statements are still able to be saved, stored or printed from your computer if the need arises, but don’t feel obligated to print each month. Say goodbye to storage files and stacks of papers!
It's easy to go paperless!
Log into Online Banking
Click on 'Statements' in the blue bar

eStatements aren't the only way to 'Go Green'!
By signing up for direct deposit with your employer, you can ensure your check will get deposited into your account with no hassle or time spent on your part. Forget that extra trip to the bank after your long work week and start enjoying your weekend the minute you punch out.
By using Online Banking, you have the ability to keep a close eye on your account – without having to stop into the bank each time you need to see if a check has cleared. Enjoy the convenience of viewing your transaction activity, transferring funds or paying your bills from anywhere.
Paying bills through a secure online banking site means less time spent writing out checks and money saved on postage. With Bill Pay, bills are sent timely and securely, helping you avoid late fees and eliminating checks lost in the mail. If you are not currently enrolled in Online Banking, need help setting up Bill Pay or Direct Deposit, just talk to your friendly, neighborhood Heartland Banker. You’ll be well on your way to going green.
