Online Banking 

Banker’s Hours Are Now Anytime
Benefits of Online and Mobile Banking
By: Leslie Fannin, Private Banking – Lexington

We’re all busy – juggling work, kids, grandkids, errands and more. This means you can’t always make it to the bank before we close. At Central Bank, we offer online and mobile banking so you can bank anytime, anywhere.

While there are Central Bank customers who love coming in to see their favorite teller or banker, sometimes convenience and time are factors. With online and mobile banking, you can avoid the trip to the bank on those occasions when there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Online banking is also great for those unexpected moments when your kids call you at 10 o’clock at night and need you to transfer money immediately for gas or pizza.

Jumping into online and mobile banking can feel a little overwhelming at first for those of us who aren’t “tech savvy”. I can tell you from personal experience, once you get the hang of things, you’ll be glad you did. Whether viewing transactions, transferring funds or paying bills from a computer or smartphone, mobile and online banking have vastly changed the way I conduct my own banking.

I have listed a few of the features Central Bank customers can utilize with our online and mobile banking products.
