The First Commonwealth new Financial Centers design is centered on creating opportunities for the members and the community to enhance their lives through financial literacy and 24-hour banking hour ease and convenience. Our new centers feature a modern interior, convenient drive-up ITM with extended hours and dedicated space for you to receive our free financial wellness education. Our new, innovative model includes numerous new features and new technologies to enhance your member experience and make it more convenient for you to do business with us.
We're excited to offer extended hours with our new ITMs (Interactive Transactions Machines) with live Video Associates to assist you. ITMs will be installed in Financial Center lobbies and drive-up lanes and will connect you with a Member Experience Associate by video to help you with more complex transactions when you need it. You can transfer funds, make loan payments and more.
Thanks to video conferencing, members can now experience "walk in" appointments at our Financial Centers with small business, mortgage, retirement and investment advisors. It's no longer necessary for you to travel to our headquarters to meet with these specialists.
You’ll enjoy the convenience of online appointment scheduling – accessible from any computer or mobile device or in a financial center – so that you can schedule a face-to-face appointment with an expert at a date, time and location of your choosing. All of our Associates are Certified Financial Wellness Coaches, so you know you'll be in good hands.
Manage your finances, meet one-on-one with an expert, browse our resouorces, and spend some time planning your future in our Financial Wellness Center. While you're there, be sure to treat yourself to a warm cup of coffee on us.
