I think it's absolutely insane, and archaic, that just because my husband is first on our account, and therefore considered the primary, he is the only one that can access our paperless statements. I am the one that handles the money, and pays the bills, so when the time came to print out statements in order to apply for a home loan, I didn't have access. He doesn't log onto the online banking. On a joint account, or any account in which all people can withdraw AND deposit money, all owners should have access to the statements. I shouldn't have to call in order to get them mailed. Also, I shouldn't have to call to get my name put on the statements when we opened the account at the same time, as a joint account.
