Security Alerts


You may have heard about a data breach at Home Depot retail stores impacting credit and debit card information. We take these situations seriously, and protecting your account information is one of our highest priorities. Here are some things that may be helpful to know:

  • Cards that may be impacted are those used in Home Depot stores beginning in April of 2014.
  • Be assured that we are actively monitoring the activity on your account. We have processes and technologies in place to look for transactions that don’t match your usual pattern of purchases and withdrawals.
  • If we suspect fraud on your account, we will be reaching out to you and reissuing a new card.
  • To monitor your account please use our online banking system and contact us if you notice any unauthorized use of your account.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but rest assured that we are monitoring the situation to insure your security.
