eStatements

In an effort to save WFCU money that is better spent on member services and to become a greener business, eStatements are the preferred method of delivery. We cannot automatically convert you to eStatements. Therefore, we highly encourage you to make the switch and enroll in eStatements (if you haven’t done so already).

If you aren’t enrolled in Virtual Branch (VB), that will be your first step. Just click the "getting started" link from the left-hand menu bar on VB for important information, then click the "Enroll" button and follow the prompts. Virtual Branch URL: https://www.financial-net.com/gwecu.
To add eStatements:

  • Logon to Virtual Branch
  • Click Self-Service
  • Under Additional Services, click eStatements, follow the prompts to add your account. When you enroll, your checking and/or loan accounts within your primary account are automatically included. However, if you have sub-accounts, you will need to enroll them individually.

If you prefer to keep receiving paper statements, we will gladly continue to provide that service for a $2.00 monthly fee per statement. Printing and postage costs continue to rise and it’s only fair that we ask those who choose the more expensive paper option to help share in that cost. Remember, you can avoid the fee by enrolling in eStatements.

Members exempt from the paper statement fee:

  • Members who are twelve (12) and under
  • Members who are seventy (70) or older

Receive your monthly statements safely, quickly, and electronically. Electronic statements provide secure, anytime, anywhere access to your Welcome Federal Credit Union statements. Here are a few features:

  • eStatements are free!
  • Automatic email notification when your statements are available usually by the 3rd of the month.
  • Six months of statements available for instant retrieval.
  • All data is fully secured, encrypted, and protected by the latest SSL technology
  • eStatements can be downloaded and/or printed.
  • When you elect to view your statements online instead of receiving a paper statement by mail, it helps protect you from confidential information being lost or stolen from your mailbox.
  • Safest, quickest, and most convenient way to receive your statements.
  • eStatements help save trees!
