    What are Alerts and why should I sign up?

    Cypress Credit Union Direct Alerts make it easy to keep track of any changes that occur with online services – for example, if you sign up to receive an alert if your PAC is changed, you will receive a text or email if the online services system detects that change. If you receive an alert but did not perform a change in online services, this may be a sign of fraudulent activity. Contact your credit union immediately and we can address your concerns and take appropriate action
