If you have a South Side Bank checking account, you can have an Express Check Card too. With your South Side Bank Express Check Card you can make purchases without opening your checkbook. Although it looks like a credit card, it works just like a check by allowing you to pay for purchases directly from your checking account. Simply sign the receipt or enter your PIN number and the amount will be automatically deducted from your checking account. It can even be used where personal checks are not accepted- like service stations, restaurants, and when you travel. The Express Check card also doubles as a 24-hour ATM Card! South Side Bank is a member of the CirrusĀ® Network, providing you access to over 200,000 locations nationwide.


24-Hour Information Line - All you need is a telephone to take advantage of this FREE service. You can check balances, see if checks have cleared and transfer money between accounts. Call 676-6800 or 877-SSB-24HR!

Bank by Mail - Whether you are making a deposit to your checking or savings account or a loan payment, we are as close as your mailbox. We provide free pre-addressed stamped envelopes for your Bank-by-Mail convenience.

Check balances, transfer money from one account to another, or make your South Side Bank loan payment. It's not only convenient. It's free! We also offer free Internet Bill Pay.
