If your phone has a web-enabled browser, you can check your balances, transfer funds and pay your bills just as you would on your computer by going to dollarbank.com and selecting Mobile Online Banking. If you actually need cash, you can now use your phone to find the closest Dollar Bank branch or one of several hundred nearby surcharge-free ATMs. Plus, since your information is encrypted, you get the same solid security you have come to expect when banking online with Dollar Bank.

This is the latest customer innovation from the bank that first introduced Pay-By-Phone telephone banking in the early 1970s. Dollar Bank won awards when it introduced its Online Banking in 1997, and last summer, the bank went wireless when it introduced text message banking allowing Online Banking customers to check balances and make transfers from their cell phones. "Our customers love the convenience of text banking," said Lisa King, Dollar Bank's VP Marketing, "so Mobile Online Banking was the next logical step."

"With over 250 million cell phone subscribers in the US, more and more customers want to be able to use their phones for banking services. Dollar Bank remains committed to using technology to help our customers conveniently do their banking safely and securely," explained Ms. King.

Dollar Bank is a $5.5 billion federally chartered mutual savings bank offering a wide range of financial services to individuals and businesses in the Cleveland, OH and Pittsburgh, PA markets. Bank subsidiaries include Dollar Bank Leasing Corporation, and Flenniken Settlement Services in Pittsburgh and Security Savings Mortgage Corporation in Canton, OH.
