Electronic Statements vs. Paper Statements: What are the benefits of going paperless?

At Regional Missouri Bank, we believe that banking should be easy. That’s why we offer simple and convenient ways for you to manage your money, including online and mobile banking with electronic statements, also known as eStatements. An eStatement is an electronic version of your paper statement that you can access through our online and mobile banking platforms. Why not simplify your life by going digital? It’s a fast, safe, and easy way to get organized and stay on top of your finances. Below are five reasons you should opt in to receiving eStatements.

  1. Security
    • Paper statements are easier to intercept or lose during the mailing process. By switching to eStatements, you can protect your information from being stolen or delivered to the wrong address. eStatements offer an extra layer of protection as they are secured by your online login credentials and can only be accessed by you.
  2. Convenience
    • With eStatements, you can access your financial information anytime, anywhere as long as you can log into your online or mobile banking. You can also retrieve your past statements for up to a year to download or store elsewhere.
  3. Immediately Available
    • Rather than waiting for your statements to be printed and mailed to your address, you can view your eStatements as soon as they become available. You will receive an email notification when your eStatements are ready to access.
  4. Declutter Your Space
    • By enrolling in eStatements, you will eliminate the extra clutter and filing hassles. You will no longer have to sort through papers or junk mail again to find your statements. With a click of a button, you could look up your statements quickly.
  5. Environmentally Friendly
    • By going digital and switching to eStatements, you are saving tons of paper! This means you’re contributing to a cleaner environment, saving trees, and helping reduce your part of the paper waste.
