Using all the tools your bank offers is the key to being able to spend more time with your family and friends and less time running errands. Here are some of the services most banks now have to help you simplify your life while they take care of your accounts.
- Use Home Banking and Bill Pay for quick and easy access to your accounts. Check your balance, transfer funds from one account to another and pay bills online. It’s quick, easy and available 24 hours a day. Some banks also allow to use to deposit checks on line by scanning in an image of the check.
- Sign up for eStatements and access your statements anytime you like. Simply log on to home banking and elect to receive your statements electronically, and you can view them any time you like. An added bonus? Since the statements are online, there is less clutter in your mailbox.
- Direct Deposit is a great timesaver. Forget those weekly trips to the bank or credit union to deposit your paycheck. Use direct deposit and your paycheck will arrive electronically, with no delays. And best of all, those funds are usually immediately available, so you’re not waiting for the check to clear.
- Bank on the go with a mobile app. Most banks have apps for both iPhone and Android that let you check your balance, transfer funds and pay bills right from your mobile phone with a few taps of your finger.
