10 May Practice Social Distancing by Banking Online
Banks across the U.S. have had to make adjustments in order to combat the spread of COVID-19. Keeping our staff and customers safe is our number one priority. Are you looking for ways to minimize human contact while still keeping your financial needs intact? Here are a couple of ways you can practice social distancing by banking online.
Having extra cash on hand for emergencies is always a great back up plan. Out of an abundance of caution, and for the safety and well-being of our customers and associates, all Bank of the Lowcountry branches are offering ATM service in addition to drive-up and walk-up service only.
Shop with Debit Cards
In order to stay safe, avoid handling cash by using your debit card for purchases. If your mobile device has the ability to set up a mobile wallet, this can help cut back contact even more. Load your debit card to your preferred choice such as Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay®, or Google Pay®.
Setting up direct deposit with your employer or income provider is a great way to decrease human contact. Make things easier and more convenient by having your paycheck, social security payment, or any other income directly deposited into your banking account.
Mobile and Online Banking
Mobile and online banking allow you to conduct most account transactions without visiting a branch. Visit banklowcountry.com for a full listing of our digital services and information on how to utilize them.
Scheduling automatic payments each month will not only help make sure your bills are paid on time, but it will also help cut back on any paper trail and any additional chance of spreading the pandemic.
