Credit card, checking and savings statements become available in mobile and online banking on approximately the same date each month, which depends on your statement closing date. You can also view your statement by viewing check images online. You can view, print and download statements from the past 36 months.

These statements can be viewed electronically or mailed directly to you. When you log in to your online banking account, you can choose to go paperless now, where you will only receive emails when a new statement is available to view.
