Loan Bills Online Starting April 1st

Mar 27, 2019

New from BankGloucester’s e-Banking

BankGloucester is pleased to announce that beginning April 1, 2019, we will be adding electronic access to your Loan Bills.   The online Loan Bill offering through our E-Documents system will complement the deposit account E-Statements service  we have offered for years. 

To subscribe your Loan Accounts for online access, as of the roll-out date of April 1st, simply log into your online banking account and select E-Documents from the Additional Services menu.  If you already take advantage of our paperless e-Statements, and you have loans with BankGloucester you will see any Loan Bills in a separate section. Select the month you want to see from the list.  

If you are new to e-Documents, you will have to accept our E-Documents Agreement before you can have access. Each month after you accept, you will receive an email when your E-Documents are ready to view. Be sure your email is current and accurate in My Settings.

In order to remember to pay your loan, you can set up a reminder for yourself in your e-Banking. Open My Settings, scroll down to Alerts and Notifications. Select Add an Alert.  Select Personal Message. Choose the account, when you want the alert, whether you want email, text or both, and add your message to yourself.


Please be aware that as part of the new service roll-out, all Loan Account owners who subscribe for online access, will continue to receive their paper/printed Loan Bills until June 1st (2019).  From June 2nd on, any owners who have subscribed their accounts will only be able to access their Loan Bills online through the e-Documents system.  

Finally, it should be noted that similar to the  E-Statements service, a minimum of 16 Billing cycles of Loan Bills will be available within the e-Documents system. 

 If you do not have e-Banking, visit our website at www.bankgloucester.com to sign up.

 Thanks for saving a tree!


Phishing - Don't take the bait!

Mar 8, 2019

Phishing is when you get emails, texts or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know. But they're actually from scammers. They want you to click on the link or give personal information (like password) so that they can steal your money or identity, and maybe get access to your computer.

The Bait

Scammers use familiar company names or pretend to be someone you know. They ask you to click on a link or give passwords or  bank account numbers. If you click on the link, they can install programs that lock you out of your computer and can steal your personal information.

They pressure you to act now - or something bad will happen.

If you have just ONE New Year Resolution...

Jan 25, 2019

Save More for Retirement!!

This year you can save more in your workplace 401(k) retirement savings account. The maximum contribution has increased from $18,500 in 2018 to $19,000, so consider increasing the amount you are contributing, making sure you’re saving at least enough to get your employer match.

Remember that even the most generous matching policy won’t be enough to fully fund your retirement, so it's always a good idea to save as much as possible.  

If you don’t have a match or a 401(k) plan, consider setting up a recurring auto-deposit into a Roth IRA. In 2019 you can contribute up to $6,000, assuming you meet the income requirements (less than $120,000 a year if you’re single, or $189,000 a year if you’re married). 

If you’re able, you can contribute to both a 401(k) and a Roth IRA for a grand total of $25,000 saved for retirement.
