Business eBanking at Union Community Bank

Union Community Bank, based in Marietta, Pa., is ahead of the curve for community banks offering business/commercial clients ebanking services. Businesses may choose from four options: eBanking Plan, Business eBanking Plan, Commercial eBanking Plan and Commercial eBanking Plan Plus. This approach provides flexibility for everyone from the self-employed individual to the larger, multi-user business.

Depending on the specific plan, business ebanking includes the following features:

* Viewing account balances and transaction details, including check images and bank statements
* Scheduling future and repeating transfers between accounts
* Implementing direct deposit of payroll (using templates or an upload)
* Making state and federal tax payments
* Initiating collections with ACH debits
* Creating a stop payment request for a single check or a range of checks
* Making loan payments and request loan advances

Union Community Bank is also ensuring that ebanking accounts are secure through a multiple authentication system.
