How to Get Started
After opening your HomeFREE Checking account in the branch, you will receive a letter mailed to the physical address associated with your account within 10 business days. This letter includes a unique "Member ID" and mailed separately for enhanced security. This is different from your SESLOC Member Number, Account Number or new debit card PIN. If you do not receive this letter, please call (805) 543-1816.
- Visit sesloc.nxgstrategies.com and click "register now" in the login box with your Member ID. Create your profile.
- To receive your entitlement for proactive monitoring services, complete the identity authentication process during registration to fully activate all of your services. You may complete at any time following the creation of your profile.
- If you received more than one unique Member ID because you have multiple memberships or HomeFREE Checking accounts, you may register another trusted family member. They will receive the entitlements if they log in to activate the service. Please see complete instructions on the NXG Strategies FAQs page.
- You'll receive communications by email or SMS text message regarding the program benefits and monitoring alerts. You can set communication preferences during registration, or update anytime. Note: this is separate from SESLOC's eList and eStatement opt-in.
