SECU launches two-way texting alerts
RALEIGH, N.C. (5/6/10)--State Employees’ CU (SECU) has launched two new services--two-way text messaging and alerts--to help members stay informed about their accounts. SECU announced the options this week in its member newsletter, Grassroots. More than 40,000 members have signed up for alerts and 3,000 have registered for two-way text messaging. Two-way text messaging allows members to receive current account balances and account activity information via text message. The service requires an active mobile device, which is validated during the registration process through SECU’s secure Member Access. Once registered, members can choose to receive information such as current balances or last posted transactions. Alerts allow members to receive specific account notifications via text message through an active mobile device or secure message through Member Access. Once registered, members can sign up for alerts for: new e-statements, deposits, low balances, nonsufficient funds, overdrafts or withdrawals. SECU, Raleigh, N.C., has $19 billion in assets.
