Starting Wednesday, August 3 at 3:00-4:00p Lynn Sweitzer will present in-person or virtually a series of four hands-on classes on how to do online banking successfully and safely. The class, part of the Community Connect: Digital Access at Home project, will meet weekly through August 24 on Wednesday in the Key Lime Room at Camp Verde Community Library or at the same time via Zoom.
Ready, Set, Bank is an online and in-person, blended learning program designed to help seniors learn about online and mobile banking. Technology is rapidly changing the financial industry and more consumer banking services are shifting online. Customers no longer need to visit their local branches or ATMs for every banking need. Advances in online and mobile banking have made managing our finances more convenient than ever.
The course content and approach were developed through a partnership between Capital One and OATS (Older Adults Technology Services). Attendees will learn about the benefits of online banking, safety & security, how to get started, how to keep track of their money, and how to manage their online accounts. Interested? Attend in person at the library or log in via the Zoom link posted on the library’s Facebook page or website.

It includes tutorial lessons guiding them through the process of getting started both online and over a mobile device. Learners are shown log-in screens and step-by-step guides for signing up. Specific guides are available for creating usernames and passwords and answering security questions.

Learners are provided with best practices for using alerts to keep track of financial activity, with other tips on how to stay informed and up to date on the money going into and out of their accounts.
