eStatements are simply your account statements in electronic format. This allows you to see your statements online rather than receiving them through postal mail. They contain the same information as your paper statements. eStatements are fast. There is no waiting for your statement in the mail and eStatements are available within 24 hours from your statement date. You will receive an email alerting you when your bank statement is available to view online. eStatements are produced in PDF format and can easily be printed and saved to your hard drive for easy, anytime retrieval. Files in PDF format can be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available free of charge at www.adobe.com.
