1. Rest assured that your money is safe

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that ACCESSbank is fiscally healthy and doing everything we can to adapt and serve you with the same local convenience and friendliness as always, just in new ways. We’re insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). If you’ve ever wondered what the “Member FDIC” logo at the bottom of our website means, just know that that your money is protected which can ease concerns in these uncertain times.

2. Take Extra steps to prevent fraud

Now is an ideal time to become familiar with our fraud protection services. In addition, you can set up Notifi Alerts to help protect your accounts. Please note, if you get a call from a financial representative of the bank, we won’t ask for confidential information such as your name, password, PIN or other account details. If you ever feel unsure about the authenticity of the caller, please hang up and call ACCESSbank. 

3. Evaluate your budget

Rethink your spending habits. Crafting a new budget that keeps spending to a minimum and only buying what you need can keep you from spending too much at once. If you’re not sure where to cut costs, use our Spend Less Calculator to get a few ideas. Try to remember that being prudent now could save you from being strapped for cash or landing in a sticky situation down the line.

4. Invest in your savings

If you have extra money right now—whether it’s from streamlining expenses or saving on the cost of gas and dining out—consider putting it in your emergency fund. We suggest putting three to six months of your expenses in a savings account, like an ACCESS Money Market. A money market account is a great place to keep emergency funds, as it typically earns more interest than your checking and is still easily accessible. At ACCESSbank, we have plenty of options to fit your needs.

5. Lean on your bank

When we say we’re here for you, we mean it. Our drive-thru locations are open 7:30am to 6:00pm to provide easy access for all of your banking needs. You can also schedule an appointment with your personal banker for individual support, or contact us with any additional questions. This is also an opportune time to make the most of mobile banking solutions that allow you to see your account details, deposit checks, transfer funds and make payments all from the comfort of your own home. If you’ve never used digital banking services before, our website has a step-by-step process to help you get started.
