As Americans are urged to self-isolate for the safety of their families and communities, our usual errands – from grocery shopping to walking the dog – have become a little more complicated.
Fortunately, banking doesn’t have to be.
Online and mobile banking services allow you to track your finances, pay bills, deposit checks and transfer money remotely – all without leaving home. In fact, it’s so convenient that you may decide to switch for good.
- Get started at
home. You don’t have to wait in line at
the bank – or even leave home – to open an online account.
Within minutes, you can get set up from your computer, tablet or
smartphone. Not sure where to start? Try a service like Axiom
Checking, which offers mobile and online banking with no minimum
- Pay anyone, at any
time. Sometimes money needs to change hands
quickly. Whether you’re helping out a family member, paying back a
friend, or giving to a good cause, online banking lets you transfer
money without fees and make repeat payments. Headed to the grocery
store? Set up contactless
payments from your smartphone to maintain social distancing and
“stop the spread.”
- Protect yourself
from fraud. If you haven’t signed up for
electronic account statements, now is the time. Not only are
eStatements faster and more environmentally friendly than
traditional paper statements, but they also offer better security
for your financial information.
- Cut down your
to-do list. We all have worries right now,
but late payments shouldn’t be among them. Set up automatic
recurring payments for all your bills, from utilities to tuition.
Plus, most mobile banking apps will notify you if your balance is
low, so you don’t have to worry about overdraft fees.
- Track your budget.
When financial problems arise, some people
rather turn a blind eye to them. But that’s not a good
long-term solution – and now is the time to build better habits.
With mobile banking, you can check your balance, review transactions
and transfer money to your savings with a tap of your finger.
- Access support when you need it. Banking online doesn’t mean you have to give up expert guidance. Services like those offered by Axiom offer on-call troubleshooting if you run into trouble. Plus, you’ll enjoy the personalized financial support of a community bank.
Online banking isn’t just a temporary solution: It’s a way to stay in the driver’s seat of your finances, now and in the future.
