TO GET FINANCIALLY FIT.
We know all the excuses. Heck, we’ve used them.
Plain and simple, getting financially fit can be hard. Sometimes, the hardest part, is just getting started.
So here’s a few simple steps to help get you going.
You can do this.
SET UP YOUR ACCOUNTS
Start the process by opening a checking AND a savings account. This is a major part of the plan. Having both accounts at the same bank is the most convenient way to manage your spending and saving.
After you get your accounts set up, be sure to take advantage of convenient tools and solutions like online/mobile banking and Card Valet.
SET UP ONLINE BANKING
Free, convenient, and secure 24/7 online access to nearly every aspect of your accounts including:
- Real-time account balances
- Transaction and account history
- View check images
- Stop payment on a check
- View all of your Southern Bank accounts
- Send us secure electronic messages
Ask us about connecting secondary accounts – such as HSA’s, IRA’s and more – to your online banking account.
- Transfer funds between Southern Bank accounts and external accounts
- View most outside account balances, such as 401k, major credit cards, and other financial institutions
- Download account information to QuickBooks, Quicken, or Microsoft Money
GET OUR APP
Download the Southern Bank Mobile Banking app for secure, convenient access to your accounts, anywhere you go. Check available balances, view transaction history, and more! Nothing is more convenient than a dedicated banking app, allowing you to securely log in to your accounts and bank on the go.
