Planning a Trip?
We want to make sure that you have access to your accounts at Albina Community Bank whether you are at home, anywhere in the United States, or visiting another country. Unfortunately, the incidence of fraudulent activity in various parts of the country or internationally may prevent us from providing access at all times or in all locations. If you are traveling and plan to use an Albina credit or debit card, please contact an Albina banker in advance of your trip so we can make note of your travel plans. While we cannot guarantee that all transactions will be approved during your travels, (there are times when this is out of our control), we will do what we can to help make your travels as smooth as possible. When you contact us, we will ask where you are traveling, when you are traveling, and how we can get ahold of you during your travels; a cell phone, email address, etc., is very helpful. With just a little advanced planning, we can help make your travels as worry free as possible!

Make sure we have your current phone number on file, and let us know when you are traveling – together we can make sure your Albina Community Bank account is protected!

You may have recently heard about the “Heartbleed Bug” security vulnerability in the OpenSSL protocol used by many public websites. This vulnerability potentially allows an attacker to access information from a system’s memory. Our Information Technology staff has been analyzing our systems, and has completed an initial assessment of Albina Community Bank’s exposure to this security issue. We want to assure you that our website, www.albinabank.com
, is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug. We will continue to update you on this situation if there are any changes in this analysis. We do recommend that our customers, especially our online banking customers, take certain steps to protect themselves. Please click here
