“Time is money”, or so the old saying goes. At Encompass Credit Union, we couldn’t agree more because we have the utmost respect for your time. We understand that you might be busy managing your business, taking care of your family, or just enjoying your life. Although we like talking to you in person, sometimes your schedule won’t let you pay us a visit. Don’t worry! We’re proud to announce that you can now open accounts online from the comfort of your home or office.
Are you ready to open a chequing, savings or term deposit account? You’ll need to fill out a form with a bit of personal information like address, phone number, email and social insurance number. Members should also include their membership number, which is displayed in our Internet Banking after you log in. Not a member yet? In this case, we’ll need an electronic copy of your bank statement from a Canadian financial institution.
We offer a few account options for each of the categories listed above (chequing, savings, and term deposit). People have different needs, so we encourage you to compare the benefits and choose the type of account that suits you best. For example, our Personal Elite account is great for those who have a high number of transactions every month, whereas our Student Advantage account is perfect if you’re a student with limited resources.
It doesn’t take more than five minutes to open your new account online. If you have to stop filling out the application to do something else, our system allows you to save your progress and resume at any time that is more convenient for you. Most importantly, all your information is safe because our online banking is protected by SSL and 256-bit encryption.
Our team is constantly looking for innovative ways to provide you with the exceptional financial services you deserve. If you have any questions about how to open an account online, feel free to contact us.
