You trust your bank with your money, so you’ll want to check into the security features the bank offers. Some things to look for when assessing the security features a bank offers:
Will the bank contact you if they detect suspicious activity on your account?
If your account information is stolen, will the bank cover any unauthorized transactions?
Does the bank have the capability to place your photo on your debit card or credit card to reduce the chances of fraud if your card is lost or stolen?
Is the bank a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation? If they are, then deposits you make will be insured up to $250,000.
