Enroll in E-Statements with SECU
Make the switch to go paperless and view your State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) account statements online with E-Statements.¹ It’s easy to sign up and can reduce the risk of identity theft from lost or stolen mail. E-statements also help save the environment by reducing the amount of paper, ink, and other resources used to print paper statements. Quicker access to your statements and the option to download them for safekeeping are other great benefits. To learn more, including how to enroll, visit www.ncsecu.org today!
¹To sign up for E-Statements, you must consent to the terms of SECU’s E-Sign Agreement prior to your enrollment in Member Access.
