e-Mail Services will keep you up to date with your account activity. You will automatically be notified when; an overdraft occurs, an item is returned, when your loan is past due or when your certificate is ready to mature. You can also set up your own “E-Lerts” for when a specific check clears, when a user specified amount is withdrawn or deposited from your account. You will also receive credit union notifications such as E-Statements, newsletter availability and credit union correspondence. We will auto enroll everyone with an active GCU online account on December 17, 2014. Should you choose not to be enrolled, simply call us after December 17, 2014 and ask to be opted out. Please note that if you choose to opt out of E-Mail Services and keep GCU Online you will incur a $5.00 per month fee for receiving paper statements as E-Mail Services is a requirement for electronic statement access.
