Though banking has become second nature for many consumers, this charter member of the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce reminds us that money is safer with some financial institutions than others. To explain, those with Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF) protection, such as The Provident Bank, provide greater security at no cost to the customer, above and beyond the $250,000 FDIC limit.
To help nonprofit organizations prepare for successful years ahead, The Provident Bank also suggests this read, “Risky Business: Why all nonprofits should periodically assess their risk.” Another valuable resource for those interested in banking as a career is the American Bankers Association website.
