We are proud to announce we now offer a Business Debit Card. Please contact your local branch representative to learn more about features such as making purchases at Visa® retailers, ATM deposits and withdrawals, and employee access controls.
* * Go Green with e-Statement * *
Electronic Statements are available to IFSB customers as of June 28, 2012. You may enroll in e-Statement when you log in to Online Banking. You may replace your paper statements with e-Statement for your Checking, Money Market, and/or Savings accounts. You may also combine other accounts at IFSB into one statement (electronic or paper) by contacting your branch and asking for "combined statements."
If you are not already enrolled in Online Banking, you may do so at any time by going to the Online Banking Info page of our website (www.ifsb.com) and clicking the Personal Online Banking Logon link. When the login page appears, click the First Time Log In link that is in the blue section at the top of the page and follow the instructions.There is no fee for Online Banking and no fee for e-Statement.
With e-Statement you get your statements electronically, including the images of paid checks, and can easily download them to your computer. You will receive an email each month when the new statement is available. No more waiting on the US mail; no more bulky sheets of paper to file; go Green with e-Statement !
* * Safe Deposit Boxes at 1301 9th St * *
All of us have items that are important to us and would be difficult or impossible to replace. And, for lack of a better arrangement, we keep them at home where they are subject to being misplaced, stolen, lost in a fire, or otherwise damaged or destroyed.
Independence Federal Savings Bank is proud to offer you a more secure alternative – a Safe Deposit Box.
Our main office at 1301 9th St NW in Washington has sturdy metal containers in our vault, each with a separate key, which can be rented for storing valuables. They contain small metal boxes in which you can store your valuables. You can access your Safe Deposit Box during our business hours of 9 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday.
You do not need to have other IFSB accounts to get the peace of mind of an IFSB Safe Deposit Box. However, if you do have an IFSB checking, savings or loan account, you get a 20% discount!
If you have items that are quite valuable to you but are stored in a less secure environment than you would like, an IFSB Safe Deposit Box may be the solution. See or call one of our customer service representatives at 1301 9th St NW in Washington, 202-628-5500.
(Neither Independence Federal nor any regulatory agency insures the contents of safe deposit boxes. Consult your insurance agent about available options to insure items stored in your box.)
As of August 3, 2011, "Verified by Visa" (VbV) gives IFSB Visa debit card holders a new layer of security when making online purchases with participating merchants. A list of online merchants who currently participate in VbV is at our Verified by Visa site.
Please go to our Verified by Visa site for more detailed information about what it is, what it does, a current list of participating merchants, answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" and a demonstration of VbV.
The easiest way to enroll is at IFSB’s Verified by Visa site. For several days after August 2 (until IFSB debit card membership is circulated electronically throughout Visa’s system) this will be the only way to enroll, and you will not see the pop-up to enter your Verified by Visa password while shopping (and some merchants may get IFSB into their system before others).
With Verified by Visa, even if your card is stolen or copied, thieves will be unable to use your card for online purchases at participating merchants unless they know your VbV password. Therefore, definitely use a very high degree of caution in protecting it (as well as your PIN number) in order to enjoy the comfort of Verified by Visa security. Do not, for instance, write down this information and keep it with your card.
If you have questions that are not answered at Verified by Visa or you need assistance please call us, or ask any of our branch representatives. Thank you.
