Easier ACCESS to Savings

The Federal Reserve announced that it would provide relief from the six-per-month limit on transfers or withdrawals from savings accounts under Regulation D, effective immediately. This action, is intended to grant more flexibility to consumers to access their savings deposits at a time when many are facing financial hardships due to this pandemic. Please contact your banker  if you have any questions regarding your account. Our retail team can customize a solution to meet your needs. If you don't have a banker, click here to contact us and someone from our team will be in touch soon. 
 

Coin shortage

It's time to deposit your spare change. When businesses temporarily closed due to COVID-19, consumers avoided using cash and the number of coins in circulation dropped significantly. The U.S. Mint is now asking consumers to donate their spare change to help with this nationwide shortage. You can deposit your coins at any ACCESSbank location.
