How Digital Banking Helps You Bank from Anywhere

June is here, which means it is peak moving season. Many military families are preparing for PCS moves, or maybe they’re just starting to settle into their new stations. No matter where you’re moving—whether it’s to another base in the U.S. or abroad—moving can be both exciting and stressful. And the question of whether to change banks often comes up during the moving process. The good news is that, with digital banking, it’s easier than ever to keep your same bank no matter where you are in the world.

Keep reading to learn more about how digital banking provides seamless access to your bank account, which means you can access it anywhere.

Access Your Bank Account Anytime, Anywhere

Digital banking allows you to access your account from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. Whether you’re on base or halfway around the globe, you can perform all your usual banking activities online.

This includes checking your balance, transferring funds, paying bills, and even depositing checks. With mobile apps and online portals, your bank is always at your fingertips.

Gain Convenience and Flexibility

PCS moves are already full of logistical challenges. The last thing you want to worry about is finding a new bank, setting up new accounts, and transferring funds. Online and mobile banking eliminates these hassles by providing a flexible banking experience.

So there’s no need to visit physical branches to perform transactions -- which is great news for those who are moving around the country or the world.

Save Money on Banking Costs

Changing banks can sometimes cost you money, either through account setup fees or the time it takes to switch. Having multiple accounts might also mean you're paying extra fees and charges.

Staying with your current bank and using digital banking services can help you avoid these costs. You might even get fee waivers and rewards for using online services, which can save you even more. For example, at Armed Forces Bank, our clients are exempt from a $5 monthly fee when customers select eStatements rather than paper statements.

Use Financial Management Tools

Online and mobile banking platforms often have financial management tools to help you manage your money. These include budgeting tools, spending trackers, and automatic savings programs like Saving Cents.

When you're moving, having these tools can be very useful. They can help you manage moving expenses, plan your new budget, and stay financially healthy during this time.

Gain Security and Fraud Protection

When it comes to digital banking, ensuring account security and fraud protection is crucial. Fortunately, this is also a high priority for banks. Most have implemented advanced security measures such as two-factor authentication, encryption, and fraud monitoring to keep your accounts and information safe.

You can feel confident that your funds and personal information are secure, no matter where you are. Plus, many digital banking platforms offer instant alerts for any suspicious activity, allowing you to respond quickly.

Access a Wide Range of Services

Digital banking is not just about basic transactions. In fact, you can typically access a wide range of services through online platforms, such as mobile deposit, loan applications, financial advice, and more. This means that you can manage all your financial needs without the need to switch banks.

Whether you’re looking to buy a new home, start an investment portfolio, or get insured, digital banking services have you covered, no matter where you are.

Enjoy Consistent Customer Support

When you move to a new location, you may worry about losing access to personalized customer service, especially when there’s no brick-and-mortar bank nearby. However, digital banking ensures that help is always at hand, whether you’re in Tucson or Tokyo. Most banks offer 24/7 customer support through various channels, including chat, phone, and email.

You can get assistance with any issues you encounter, no matter your time zone or location. This consistent support can be helpful as you settle into your new environment.
