You may also use this feature for overdraft protection. Simply set up your savings account as a transfer account to your checking and if you accidentally overdraw your account, increments of $50 will be transferred to cover the overdraft amount.

ACCOUNT ACTIVITY PRINTOUTS
For a small fee, get a printout of all deposits and withdrawals from your account at any time without having to wait for your next scheduled statement. Simply stop by and ask for an account activity printout.
Use a cashier’s check on occasions when a check will not be accepted.
As a customer you may use a cashier's check instead of a personal check to guarantee that your funds for payment are available. A cashier's check is secured because the amount of the check must first be deposited by the individual into the issuing institution's own account. The person or entity to whom the check is made out is then guaranteed to receive the money when cashing the check.

Rent a safe deposit box to help protect valuables such as jewelry, family treasures, important documents against fire, theft and other disasters.
Safe deposit boxes are located at our home office and branch location. Size and availability may vary at each location.

Mobile banking security tips
Using your mobile device to manage your account is convenient and saves you time, but you do need to make sure it is secure. Below are a few tips to keep your banking safeguarded.
Treat your mobile device or tablet just like your debit card. If it is lost or stolen and you have not protected it properly, your information may be at risk. Always store your phone in a safe place.Only download and install First State Bank apps from Google Play Store and Apple Ap store.Always lock your device. If your device has a locking feature, such as a tracing pattern or inserting a PIN, be sure to use it. It might slow you down each time BUT the extra security may be enough to keep someone form accessing your account before you can report it missing or stolen.Don't share your user id or password with anyone.DO NOT use public or unprotected WIFI to perform any banking transaction even checking a balance. Public connections such as hotels, restaurants are not very secure. Always use your phone or tablet's network.Always log out of mobile banking or your banking app when you are not using it.Delete text message with account information once you have read it.
If you have any questions about security features available on your phone, please contact your mobile carrier service. If you have a question concerning First State Bank mobile banking or our banking apps call 1-800-947-8382.
