you’re one of the millions who have discovered the ease
and convenience of managing your financial affairs online,
you can skip this section. If not, please read on, because
you’re missing out on a wonderful opportunity.
And if you are a confirmed “cyber-not” and want

point and click – you’re given a menu of options
– a choice of things you may want to do. Like “deposit”,
“withdrawal”, “transfer”, etc. You

about how easy it is to manage your finances online.
And you can do much more than just online banking and managing
your bank accounts. You can buy, sell and manage your investments,
file your taxes, look after your insurance needs, plan your
retirement, plan your estate and so much more.

are so many areas in life where you have to do things according
to someone else’s schedule. This is an opportunity to
eliminate some of those and look after them on your schedule.
And whenever you are online – whatever the time –
many financial institutions have representatives available
to you for personal assistance if you need it.
The bottom line: Once you begin managing your finances online
you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. It will
become as common and essential to your everyday activities
as your telephone.
