Save money and time by going green

Going “green” often means reducing carbon emissions, consuming less energy, or cleaning our water and air. There are steps you can take with your finances to go “green” that might save you time, money, and possibly reduce your carbon footprint!
With the convenience of online banking, mobile apps, and digital payments, you can reduce your carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the planet.
Let’s think about how we can go green when banking electronically. Here are some ways you can do just that.

Go Paperless

One of the most obvious ways to reduce your impact on the environment when banking electronically is to go paperless. Instead of receiving paper statements, opt for eStatements that you can access through your online banking portal or via email. This not only saves trees but also reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
With Hanmi Bank, you can sign up for eStatements. You can still download a digital copy of your statement to a secure location to have for your immediate access.

Use Online & Mobile Banking

Online & Mobile banking is another way to reduce your impact on the environment. Instead of driving to a physical branch or ATM, you can access your accounts on your mobile device. This not only saves fuel but also reduces carbon emissions from vehicles.
Don’t forget that you can use mobile apps to deposit checks remotely. Click HERE for a tutorial video to learn how to submit a mobile deposit.

Use Digital Payments

Digital payments are not only convenient but also eco-friendly. Instead of writing a check or using cash, use electronic bill pay service, which can eliminate or reduce waste and saves trees. You can also set up to pay automatically to take the hassle out of paying bills. Learn how to set up and make a payment using the Bill Pay feature in Hanmi Online Banking and Mobile App HERE.
Need to send money to someone you know? Use Zelle®, a fast, safe and free way to send money to friends and family. Right from online and mobile banking, without downloading a separate app, you can send and receive money with Hanmi deposit account, using U.S. mobile number or email address. Learn more about Zelle® HERE.

Protect your Money

Set up account alerts. Alerts can be used for low balances to avoid overdrafts, and to keep track of your account activity, debit card usage, direct deposit notifications, password changes, or unusual activity. If you are looking for a specific alert, watch this video HERE to make your own.
