Want to stop those paper statements and instead be emailed when a new document is available for viewing? Do you want this service to be free? eDocuments is your solution! Below are the instructions on how to enroll.

    • To enroll in eDocuments, you will need to log in to Online Banking and click on the eDocuments tab as shown below.
    • The eDocuments enrollment requires that you provide your email address, a security phrase, an enrollment passcode, and your agreement to the eDocuments terms and conditions. 
    • Clicking on the ‘Enroll Now’ button submits your eDocuments enrollment request. An enrollment confirmation message will appear as shown below. 
    • You should also receive an email confirmation to the email address you provided. The email address will have your security phrase in the body of the email. You will also see your enrolled account(s) listed. 

    Helpful Tips:

    1. In the event of joint online access to an account, the first online user to enroll the account into eDocuments has full control over enrollment and sole access to that account’s eDocuments. The joint user(s) will not be able to toggle enrollment or see the account’s eDocuments until the initial enroller turns the account’s enrollment off, thereby freeing up the control of enrollment and access to the account’s eDocuments. This feature ensures that users with joint access don’t mistakenly cancel out each other’s request.
    2. The master eDocuments user can sign up additional recipients to have access to the account’s eDocuments. This feature is extremely helpful for joint users of an account who also wish to see the statements or for customers who want their financial advisor or others to have access to their statements without ownership to the account. To create an additional recipient, the master user will need to provide a username, password, and email address for the additional user(s). The master user can also assign which eDocuments the additional recipient has access to.
    3. Your eDocuments history begins building when you enroll. All eDocuments will remain on the system for 18 months.
    4. All eDocuments are in PDF format. It is suggested to have the most recent version of Adobe Reader installed.

    Security Tokens

    Published on April 25, 2013

    Online fraud has become very agressive as technology has advanced, and the days of simple Username-Password online protection are long gone. As a result, the regulatory standards on account access have risen. Paragon has always been very intentional in keeping your bank information safe in your hands. Going far above the regulatory standards, we have shown our dedication to combatting online fraud by offering extra security measures to help you securely access your bank information. Why? It's because we feel that all of our customers deserve the best security possible. We are, once again, taking the stance of being proactive rather than reactive by offering a new level of advanced security.

    This new level of advanced security is the implementation of Security Tokens. These tokens generate a unique security code that you enter in addition to your other credentials for safe and secure account access. Each generated code has a lifetime of only thirty seconds, severely crippling the chances of online fraud. Furthermore, each token has its own serial number that is registered and synced to your credentials through Online Banking. This registration keeps other tokens from being used and can only be reset by contacting us.

    Offered at a nominal fee, the Security Tokens are available in two forms.

    Virtual Security Token

    The Virtual Security Token is installed on a mobile device such as smart phone, tablet, or personal media player as long as it has an active internet connection. The Virtual Security Token is an excellent choice because it's installed on a device that you will more than likely have on you at all times. Also, your chosen mobile device may have its own password protection that could act as yet another layer of security to your bank information.


    Physical Security Token

    The Physical Security Token is great if you don't have an internet-enabled mobile device. It's also wonderful for those who wish to have extreme control of access to their account as the physical token is able to be kept under lock and key.

Unfortunately, this scenario plays out for far too many people every day, but we have a solution made just for this.

    Enter Bank-to-Bank Transfer. You can now have money transferred electronically from your account at another bank to your Paragon account or vice versa.
