The platforms are designed with your security in mind. Not only are our platforms monitored constantly, but we have automatic alerts for customers to ensure full transparency when online transactions are being conducted on their accounts.

    JN Bank customers who use the JN Bank LIVE online platform receive alerts, such as a SMS text message when transactions are sent to other banks or to JN accounts.

    A SMS text message is sent to the customer each time he/she conducts a transaction using a JN Bank credit card. Additionally, a SMS text message is sent for card-less deposits done at JN Bank Smart ATMs.

    JNFM customers receive:

    • Transaction statements via email notification after transactions to buy and/or sell securities.
    • Transaction statements or confirmation notifications via email when rolling over investments such as repurchase agreements.
    • Quarterly statements

    Customers are encouraged to be aware of the popular methods used by hackers to steal their personal information and the steps that can be taken to safeguard their accounts. We educate clients about these trends and practices so that they can protect themselves.
