Alerts and Notifications

Get notifications on transactions, low balances, withdrawals, overdrafts, pending NSFs and more with LGFCU Alerts.

There’s a way to know what your money is doing even when you’re not looking — sign up for alerts. If a balance gets too low, or a withdrawal is made, or even if you’re about to overdraw funds, LGFCU can send a notification, giving you time to take action and even avoid fees.

Alerts are sent via secure email through Member Connect or by text message to your mobile phone.

Security Alerts

The Credit Union continuously monitors Member Connect for questionable transactions. By registering for our near real-time Security Alerts, the Credit Union can notify you immediately on your mobile phone of any high-risk transaction. Our security alerts are designed to better protect you against current and potential online threats. 

Account Alerts

Enrolling in account alerts allows you to choose one or more alert types for each of your eligible deposit accounts:

  • Receive an alert on your mobile phone to make a deposit or transfer to prevent an item(s) from being returned due to insufficient funds (NSF).
  • Select a low balance and deposit threshold to help monitor your spending.
  • Monitor your debits and withdrawals when your pre-set threshold amount is reached.
  • Know when your new e-statement is available.
  • Get notified fast when a non-sufficient funds (NSF) or overdraft deposit posts to your account.
  • Get notified by mobile phone when your debit card gets declined in near real-time.

 Another Chance Alerts

Another Chance Alerts help fix those small mistakes that might easily creep into busy lives. Get notified of a deposit that’s made just a little too late, or when a check is written because you think there are funds. We’ve created these alerts specifically to help our members turn a potential negative back into a positive — just in the nick of time.

When you sign up, we automatically notify you if your checking account dips into the red. These notifications give you the opportunity to deposit funds to cover the overdrawn amount. If the deposit is made in time to receive credit the same day (generally by 5:30 p.m. ET), your potential issue quickly becomes a non-issue.

Your Another Chance Alert helps you avoid a non-sufficient funds (NSF) charge to your LGFCU account, and can also help avoid charges from other institutions.

Disclosures

Depending on your wireless service provider, you may sometimes experience delays in receiving alerts. Text messaging fees may also apply, depending on your wireless plan. LGFCU does not charge for our text alert service.

Alerts sent may not be delivered if your phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of the Credit Union and/or your wireless carrier may interfere with message delivery, including your mobile device equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage and weather. While we will make efforts to initiate all alerts in a timely manner, we cannot control all external factors necessary for you to receive the alerts and as such you should not rely only on the alerts to maintain awareness of the status of your accounts. The Credit Union cannot assume liability for any negative consequences related to you not receiving alerts, including another chance alerts. By enrolling in alerts you acknowledge that alerts may not be timely received and that the Credit Union and your wireless carrier do not guarantee that alerts will be delivered.

Security Note: The Credit Union will never request specific account information (such as account numbers or passwords) via text or email. We will also never send scam notifications requesting you to confirm information. If you should receive such a request, please contact us immediately.
