There are many to choose from, but the main benefit of online banking is the convenience it offers. For example, if you need to find out your checking account balance at 10 p.m. on a Sunday, all you need to do is go online. With online banking, you aren’t limited by bank hours—services are available 24/7.
“The number of things you can do online just keeps growing,” Emily Casebolt, Mercer Savings Bank Assistant Vice President says. “It enables you to do things when you want to do them. You’re not bound by our hours.”
Additionally, online banking makes it more convenient to monitor your account. Not only is this beneficial when it comes to balancing your checkbook, but it also helps you keep an eye out for fraudulent transactions.
