Save Green by Banking Green

Now that you’ve got your finances organized, keep the momentum going by being financial green. Here are a few ways we can help you save time, money and a few trees when banking.

Electronic Statements

First thing’s first: sign up for online statements. Online statements are secure and convenient because you don’t have to wait to receive them in the mail and you can view them at any time.

Direct Deposit

Not only is it greener than pay stubs, you can designate where you want your money deposited. Deposit it directly into your checking account or split it so some goes into savings.

Pay People Online

Skip check writing, running to the ATM to get cash or looking for an envelope to pay someone. Digital wallets are becoming more and more popular. With our online banking system, you can pay people directly from your account.

Use that Debit Card

In addition to not having to worry about writing a check or carrying cash to make a purchase, when you sign for purchases with your debit card or make purchases online, you may have additional fraud protection from the your card’s issuer.
