Debit Cards

Debit/ATM Cards allow you to draw funds from your checking account without having to write out a check. You will receive a card, that looks like a credit card, that will allow you to scan the card at most retail establishments or receive cash at most ATM machines. You are never charged if you use a Black River Country Bank ATM, but you may be charged at other ATM’s.
