Statement Q & A
What is an eStatement?
An estatement is an electronic version of your Washington Trust monthly statement.
How do I access my eStatements?
You can access eStatements by selecting the eStatements tab in the main navigation of WTB Online.
I check my account using my mobile app or using online banking. Why do I need to get a statement?
Using mobile banking is a great way to access the recent activity on your account but, only your monthly statement provides you with additional details that you need to verify all of the activity on your account.
It is very important that you examine your statement so that you can report any discrepancy or irregularity within 30 days of the statement date to reduce your liability. Reporting issues promptly helps protect your account and allows the bank to investigate transaction discrepancies in a timely manner.
Can I have some statements sent paper and others sent through eStatement?
Yes. You have the option to receive an eStatement for just one account or all of your accounts.
Delivery Expectations and Options
When will I receive my statement?
Mailed statements should be received within a day or two of normal delivery. eStatements are available earlier than paper statements. If you have provided WTB with your email address, we will send you an alert when your eStatement is ready.
