Even More Independence.

The thing about a revolution is it's always evolving. From the time we began our banking revolution, our top priority at Independence Bank has always been to elevate the quality of life for our customers, communities and employees. That way of thinking has provided us with the opportunity to take our revolution to the next level, and we could not be more excited to share this piece of Independence Bank's history with you as we introduce Project Innovation, a bank-wide initiative coming this fall. As a customer, you'll have access to new technology that will make navigating your finances and transactions faster and more convenient than ever.

What is Project Innovation?

Innovation encompasses a way of thinking, finding not just a new way to do things, but a better and smarter way to do them. Some may call that revolutionary; we sure do.

Project Innovation will give you as a customer access to new technology that will make navigating your finances and transactions faster and more convenient than ever. With advanced products like mobile payment services such as Apple Pay and person to person payments (P2P), you’ll have access to the revolutionary banking services you want at your fingertips 24/7.

Upgrades to current products such as statement enhancements and single sign on between mobile and online banking will enhance your banking experience and freedom to make your financial life easier.

It is important for us to meet you as a customer where you want to be, whether that is online or face-to-face. So with these new features will come the freedom to customize your banking experience to what suits you best.

Chris Reid Chairman & CEO
