Bank On Roanoke Valley

WHAT IS BANK ON?
Bank On Roanoke Valley (BORV) is a partnership of financial institutions, local governments, and United Way of Roanoke Valley to improve the financial stability of families living in the Cities of Roanoke and Salem, Town of Vinton and the Counties of Craig, Botetourt and Roanoke.

 

WHY IS A BANK ACCOUNT IMPORTANT?
It’s convenient, safe, and a lot less expensive than using a check-cashing service. Properly maintaining deposit accounts at a bank or credit union is a building block to improving your financial well-being. 
 
Don’t have a lot of money? Depending on the bank or credit union, you may be able to open a free account, or one for as little as $5! 
 
All Bank On partners offer checking accounts and won’t require you to keep a minimum monthly balance.
 
WHAT ELSE CAN MY BANK OR CREDIT UNION DO FOR ME?
~ Cash your paycheck for FREE when you have a bank account.
~ Arrange for a direct deposit of your paycheck or other checks so you can use your money right away.
~ Give you access to your money for free through your bank or credit union’s ATM network.
~ Save you money by paying your bills online without having to mail a check.
