We are here to help you protect yourself

To help our customers manage and protect their money, The Cottonport Bank will send customers text alerts, which will allow them to receive a text message notification of any suspicious behavior. Once the text message is received, the recipient will be prompted to provide a response letting us know if they authorize the transaction. If we do not receive a response, or if the customer lets us know that they do not, we will freeze the customer's account until the problem is resolved.

In order for us to make sure this process is successful, we must stay updated on customer contact information. Call or stop by one of our convenient locations to update your address, or phone number. Branch locator
