What's New At Mid American
Ensure short codes are enabled for text banking
If you’re planning to use Mid American’s new text banking services, make sure that your cell phone has been enabled for short code texting.
Short codes are a special set of numbers used by various industries when providing a value-added, automated service such as text banking. Mid American’s unique short code is 282228. This is the number to which a member sends a text to receive account information.
Usually short codes are enabled, but if you are having difficulties signing up for text banking, short codes may be blocked on your phone. Contact your carrier to have it unblocked.
With Mid American’s new mobile banking, you can check balances, view account history, transfer funds and do national and local searches for the nearest ATM or branch. With the new text banking, you can text us for your account balance and recent transaction history and even transfer funds.

Mobile and text banking services are free from Mid American. Depending on your cell phone carrier’s data plan, you may incur a data services charge from your cell phone provider.
A couple of other tips on getting set up:
· When you are prompted to enter user ID and password, click on New User to begin the process.
· Make sure you enter your personal identification as it is listed on your account.
With the addition of the new services, Mid American keeps you connected through practically any communication device: online through Desktop Banking, with your cell or mobile device through mobile and text banking, and through an automated 24-hour telephone service, Mid American’s Telephone Teller or MATT, by calling 722-3921 and pressing 3 to be connected to the service.
