Benefits of Traditional Banking

Trust your personal checking account with a brick-and-mortar bank like Citizens Bank

You enter your local branch, and you're immediately greeted by a banker who knows your name and your story. In an age of smart phones and automated technologies, you may prefer the simplicity of a traditional bank with a hometown feel. At Citizens Bank, we believe your banking relationship should be three things: Simple, Clear and Personal. Whether you're retired, an empty-nester or simply enjoy an in-person banking relationship, discover the benefits of traditional banking. Then, learn how our trusted representatives can provide personalized guidance on new ways to manage your personal checking account with online bill pay.

Simple and easy to use

While the benefits of our traditional banking are available to all customers, they are particularly valuable to those who have found themselves in an empty nest or who are nearing retirement. Now is the time to enjoy a slower pace of life and take advantage of your newfound freedom. The kids have moved out, you have more time for yourself and you're ready to experience life in a whole new way. As your lifestyle changes, you deserve a banking solution that is simple and easy to use. And while you may prefer the in-person banking experience, our online bill pay provides the freedom you need to take that dream trip you've been waiting for. Not comfortable setting it up on your own? Citizens Bank is here to help. Our representatives can walk you through the process step-by-step so that you never miss a payment.

Clear and upfront

If you're retired and living on a fixed income, your budget may not be as flexible as it was when you were working full-time. Avoid the hassle of hidden bank fees by trusting your money with a brick-and-mortar bank like Citizens Bank. We believe in being clear with our customers, and we'll tell you upfront what you get with our products before you apply. Find answers to frequently asked checking questions online, or visit a branch near you for more information - we'd love for you to drop by.


Our trusted representatives care about your financial goals just as much as you do. From opening a new savings account so you can set money aside for the holidays year-round to downsizing your existing home, we're here to listen, and we understand your unique financial situation. As a traditional bank, you'll find an exceptional and personalized customer experience where bankers provide solutions that fit your circumstances. We believe we're in this together, and we're invested in the success of our communities.
