Help — eStatements

1. What is the eStatement service?

Our eStatement service is a fast and easy way to view your Langley Federal Credit Union (LFCU) statements on a secure Internet site — for FREE! They replace the printed statements you receive in the mail each month. Your online statement looks similar to the printed version, and you can access archived statements for the past 24 months.

2. How much does it cost to use eStatements?

eStatements are a free electronic service provided for the convenience of Langley Federal Credit Union members.

3. How do I sign up to receive eStatements?

Login to L@ngley Link. From the menu, select "Accounts / eStatement". Review the Terms Of Use. If you agree to them, you'll be taken to a simple enrollment form where you can configure the email address you want to use for receiving notices when new eStatements are ready. When you complete the form, you'll be enrolled, but you must validate your information.

Validation is simple. LFCU will send a validation email to the address you configured. It will contain a special hyperlink which most members can simply click to complete activation. In some rare cases, you may have to manually type the code into a form on the LFCU site. Clear instructions are provided in the validation email.

4. May I receive both a printed and an electronic statement?

No. You may only choose either a printed or an electronic statement, not both.

You will need a personal computer with access to the Internet (World Wide Web). The eStatement service currently supports browsers that conform minimally to the WCC HTML 4 standard. You will need a valid email account and email software that supports HTML formatted messages. You are responsible for the installation, maintenance and operation of any software and your computer.

16. Can I print my eStatement?

You are able to print eStatements for your records, if desired. For best printing results, please set margins to 0.25" under the page printing properties for your web browser.

17. How is the integrity of my data maintained using Internet access with SSL protocol?

LFCU eStatements use the industry standard technology and techniques to help ensure that your statement information is as secure as possible. These techniques include multi-factor authentication, data encryption, and the use of secure servers, which are designed to keep out potential intruders. The eStatements site uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt sensitive data prior to transmission over the Internet so it is protected from anyone attempting to read it in transit. Online log monitoring and analysis are conducted to detect break-in attempts and other problems. There is strong encryption between the client and Web server, as well as between the Web server and back-end systems.

18. I signed up for eStatements a few days ago and I haven't received my eStatement activation message. What could be the problem?

It is possible that either your email provider or the settings within your email software has handled the eStatement message as junk email.

For users of Microsoft Outlook® messaging and collaboration client:

Check Junk Mail settings in Outlook:

  • Open Microsoft Outlook.
  • On the toolbar, click Organize.
  • Click Junk Email.
  • Check the options you have selected for Junk Email organization.

To Make an Exception to your Junk Mail list:

  • On the Tools menu, click Rules Wizard.
  • In the Apply rules in the following order box, click Exception List.
  • In the Rule description box, click Exception List.
  • Click Add.
  • Enter the email address you want to make an exception for. In this case, the email is notifications@lfcustatements.org.

Messages sent from the email address you enter will appear in your Inbox as usual, even if the email address is part of a domain listed in your Junk Senders list. Any rules you applied to the domain will not be applied to this sender. If you feel that your email provider may be blocking the email with spam filters, please contact your provider to remove the block.

AOL Users:

To set up your AOL email account to properly receive email from Langley Federal Credit Union, you will need to access your AOL Mailbox and adjust the Spam Controls. You could also consider adding the LFCU email address to your Address Book or Buddy List.

19. If I give up or lose my L@ngley Link service, what happens to my eStatements?

If your L@ngley Link enrollment is terminated for any reason, your eStatements will also be terminated, and you will again be mailed regular paper statements.
