When you elect to receive communications, you agree to receive your statement and disclosure information in electronic format, delivered via Internet Banking offered by First Shore Federal.  Combined account statements will be displayed under the Primary account number just like your regular paper statement.  Your consent to receive electronic communications includes, but is not limited to:

  • All legal and regulatory disclosures/notices associated with your account

You will be notified by email each time a new statement and/or disclosure becomes available for viewing.  It is your responsibility to access these communications.

Your statements will be available for up to 18 months beginning after enrollment.  All disclosures will be available either on our website or within your statement.  These will be available to you as long as you have Internet Banking access.
