Some banks may have closed a selection of its branches or amended its services due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) stated: “In difficult circumstances, some banks may need to temporarily limit operations to protect the health of their employees and customers. This may include closing a lobby, converting to drive-thru only services, or encouraging customers to use ATMs or digital channels to access their services.

“Many banks offer ways to open accounts remotely—online or through a mobile app—without going to a bank branch. As long as you have a computer or a smartphone with access to the internet, it is easy to get started.

Several banks have incorporated different forms of mobile technology as part of their services amid the ongoing outbreak, such as Remote Deposit Capture (RDC), “which allows customers to take a picture of a check with their mobile device and deposit that check electronically without ever visiting a branch or using an ATM,” the FDIC noted.

“Regardless of the bank’s operating conditions, your money is insured by the FDIC. Deposits with an FDIC-insured bank or savings institution will continue to be protected up to at least $250,000,” the FDIC said.

The FDIC also warned bank users that “some people may take advantage of COVID-19 by using fraudulent websites, phone calls, emails, and text messages. While claiming to offer ‘help,’ they may be trying to trick people into providing social security numbers, bank account numbers, and other valuable personal information.

“Do not divulge your bank or credit card numbers or any other personal information over the phone unless you initiated the conversation with the other party and you know that it is a reputable organization,” the FDIC added.
