How can Alerts help me?

Activity Alerts

Text messages that help you keep track of certain changes on your accounts.

A message will be sent as confirmation whenever you:


  • Create or amend a payee – either a Republic of Ireland individual or company
  • Create or amend a standing order
  • Update your address or telephone details
  • Are issued with a new debit/credit card or Personal Identification Number (PIN).

If you’ve provided us with a valid ROI mobile number, you will automatically receive these alerts. If you haven’t, just update your mobile number through your Anytime Internet Banking, over the phone, or in your local branch.

These alerts provide increased security and peace of mind because you’ll know if something unexpected happens. If you receive an alert about an update you haven't made, contact us immediately by calling 1850 211 830. 

Balance alerts

Get a text when you reach certain limits.

You can set up to receive alerts if your account goes above or below a certain amount, so you'll know when you've received a large payment or if you're low on funds.

On demand alerts

Send a text to our short code and we will send you back your account balance or most recent transactions.

Don't wait to check your balance on your most recent transactions - find out anytime by texting BAL or MINI to 53627.


If you have one or more accounts registered, just add the last three digits of your account number or last digits of your debit card number for information on that account, e.g. BAL 123, or MINI 1234.
