Managing Your Account

Helpful Tips on Managing Your Account

We're here to help you manage your money and we understand that sometimes that can be a difficult task, especially if you've never done it before. 

Account Management Tools

Great Southern offers a variety of tools and services to help you manage your account and stay on track.

Monitoring transactions often and balancing your accounts every month is one of the best money management habits you can practice.

Record your transactions as often as you can in either a checkbook register or by keeping track of them through Online Banking. This will help you to keep a better eye on what your balance is and how much money you're spending.

Knowing your available balance will help prevent you from spending more money than you have available. You can double check your available balance at anytime by using our free tools including Online Banking and our 24-hour Phone Bank.

Balancing your account every month, either by using Online Banking or a checkbook ledger, can help you keep track of where you are spending your money and help make you aware of how much you have to spend or save. 

Financial Education

Financial education fosters financial stability for individuals, families and communities. The more people who know about credit and banking services, the more likely they are to increase savings, buy homes and improve their financial health and well-being.
