If you’re registered as an individual, you will be able to place check orders for your consumer and business accounts online. We anticipate that accounts registered as a business will be able to order checks online in the near future.

You can set up new alerts and manage current alerts under the Notifications tab in your Settings.
Daily alerts — such as the balance alert — will be active after 5:00 p.m. on the same day that you set them up. All other alerts will be active within an hour of setup.
