Helpful Financial Tips
Shortcuts for managing your finances more efficiently using FREE services from First Security Bank.
You can have recurring bills, like your power or telephone bills, automatically deducted from your account each month for free via ACH. At your request, the company will send your regular statement, then debit your checking or savings account after the statement date. You do nothing and save a stamp, envelope, check blank and trip to the mailbox.
If you have a monthly loan payment, we can take it out of a checking or savings account at First Security or out of an account you may have at another bank. You just saved another stamp, your payment was on time, and you didn’t have to do a thing. There is no charge for the transaction.
If your employer offers direct deposit of payroll, sign up! You don’t have to worry about running your payroll check through the washer again, and you save a trip to the bank. There is no charge for direct deposit.
Apply for a VISA® Debit Card and use it almost anywhere you would normally write a check. The merchant’s name is listed next to the charge to your account on your monthly statement. You can quickly see where your money is going, and you’ve saved a check blank. There is no charge for the transaction.
Keep your Visa Debit Card with your checkbook. You can write the amount of the withdrawal or charge in your register when you use your card.
Save time by depositing your payroll check at one of our full service ATMs and withdraw some cash while you’re there. You can also make a loan payment at any of First Security Bank’s full service ATMs. There is no surcharge to perform these tasks at any of our ATMs.
Avoiding ATM Surcharges
Use your VISA® Debit Card as a debit card anywhere you see the Interlink logo. You can receive cash back just like when you write a check. The merchant’s name is printed on your monthly statement listing the transaction, and you save a check blank. There is no charge for the transaction.
