Jefferson Bank – Coronavirus Update

Jefferson Bank - Coronavirus Update

There is no higher priority for our entire Jefferson Bank and Trust Company family than the health and safety of our clients, employees, vendors and communities.  We are closely monitoring the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and encourage everyone to follow guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local authorities.

All of Jefferson Bank and Trust Company’s offices are open during normal business hours and because of the pandemic we are handling most banking transactions electronically or in the drive-thru.  We’re here for you and have expanded the services offered in the drive-thru to include picking up and dropping off loan and deposit documents.  If you require a replacement debit card please call and we will provide it to you through the drive-thru with proper identification.  If you must access your safe deposit box please call for an appointment Monday through Friday.

Unscrupulous individuals are taking advantage of this pandemic to commit fraud.  Please remember that Jefferson Bank and Trust Company will never contact you to request that you provide a login ID, password, PIN number, Social Security number, birthdate or any other information.  We will never email you a link to verify any of this personal information.  We will not ask you to take cash out of your bank account and recommend that you use your Jefferson Bank and Trust debit card to make payments to avoid handling cash.  Please click security tips on our web site at jbt-stl.com for more information.

If you currently use Internet Banking, we ask that you sign up for Electronic Statements.  Electronic Statements are:  in a portable document format (pdf), secured by a passcode, save paper and cannot be stolen out of your mailbox or delivered to your neighbor in error by the postal carrier.  To sign up please login to your JBT Direct Internet Banking account and click the online statement tab, then click on enrollment, follow the on screen instructions, accept the terms and conditions, and click the enroll now button.  Please call your local office if you require help.

Customers are encouraged to utilize all of the remote banking capabilities provided by Jefferson Bank and Trust Company.

IRS Launches Online Economic Impact Payments Tool To Check Status, Provide Payment Info

On April 15, 2020 the IRS launched an online tool at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment that enables consumers who have previously filed a tax return to check the status of their economic impact payment. Consumers can see the date their payment is scheduled to be deposited in their bank accounts or mailed to them and provide their bank account information to receive direct deposit if it is not currently on file with the IRS.
