Financial institutions not only keep the country operating effectively but also make it possible for consumers to efficiently manage their daily financial tasks.
With so much financial business being handled online, today’s financial institutions provide access to resources that were unavailable just a few years ago, like mobile check deposits. It’s easy now to access financial institutions at their brick-and-mortar locations, online or on your phone.
Financial institutions come in many forms, including local, regional, and national banks and credit unions. They offer bank accounts including savings accounts, checking accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs). Other products and services include loans — personal and auto — credit cards, mortgages, and financial planning tools. Whether you want to cash your paycheck or buy a home, a financial institution can help.
