System & product enhancements

By mail you recently should have received important account information about enhancements we’re making to online banking and bill pay, debit cards, and more.

Please check out the System Changes information you received, as you will need to take action on several items ahead of conversion dates in mid-March. In addition to the booklet that was mailed to you, you can find that information online.

Of course, if you have any questions, please contact your favorite banker or visit Private Bank of Buckhead or Private Bank of Decatur in person. And I always welcome your feedback and input as well. Thank you for banking with us. We sincerely appreciate your continuing business and support,

Private Bank Example Debit Card

Your new EMV Chip-enabled debit card should be arriving in the mail soon. You’ll receive the new card, followed in a few days by a separate mailing including your new PIN. Start using the new card Monday, March 20; your existing card limit(s) will come over to your new card(s). You are probably familiar with the added security of EMV chip cards, featuring a small microchip containing the same information stored in the magnetic stripe on the card back. This chip adds another layer of security by producing a unique single-use code to validate each transaction, further protecting your card from unauthorized use. Questions? Just ask a PBB or PBofD team member.
