Other Services for Banking Accounts
Don't have time to make it to the bank? Use Sauk Valley Bank's 24-hour Night Depository at any of our three convenient banking facilities.
It is a safe, secure way of making deposits when the bank is closed (for individuals or businesses). We suggest our commercial bankers use a night drop bag with lock and key. You can drop off bags at night and pick them up the next morning or working day.
With Sauk Valley Bank's Night Depository Service you have:
- Four convenient, well-lit locations
- Deposits verified by two employees
- Records kept of all night deposits received
- No worry about cash held at home or office
Safe Deposit Boxes
Safeguard your family heirlooms, irreplaceable items with great sentimental value, stock certificates, your will and your insurance policies in a safe deposit box. We offer a variety of sizes and prices.
Direct Deposit Service
With our FREE direct deposit service, your U.S. government check, Social Security, retirement or paycheck can be electronically deposited into your bank account, eliminating trips to the bank, as well as concern about lost or stolen checks.
Wire Transfer Service
If you or someone you know needs cash in a hurry, we can arrange a same-day transfer to almost any location, foreign or domestic. To arrange a wire transfer please see one of our personal bankers at one of our 4 convenient locations.
Foreign Currency & Drafts
We can obtain currency for most foreign countries. Simply notify us seven to ten days before money is required. Foreign drafts are also available.
Cashier's Checks & Personal Money Orders
If you're making a sizable cash purchase or transaction, a Cashier's Checks or personal money order is a good option. Recognized and accepted as readily as cash by almost every store, resort or institution, they represent the bank's obligation rather than your personal obligation.
