PNC Bank Partnership

As a special service to Penn faculty and staff members, PNC Bank offers a free checking account with Direct Deposit through its Workplace Banking program. PNC Bank representatives will be on campus in the atrium of the Bookstore to discuss the WorkPlace Banking program this Thursday and Friday, April 25-26, noon-5 p.m.

Participants are also entitled to a savings or money market account at no additional charge. The PennCard may be linked to these accounts and used as a no-fee ATM card at any of PNC's 3,300 ATMs, including those located throughout campus. Free online banking through their Account Link web site, discounted financial planning services, loans, and investment services, are some of the other features offered to Penn employees through this special program.

As a special promotion, faculty and staff members who open a new WorkPlace Banking account with Direct Deposit now through May 31, 2002 will receive a $50 credit to their account. For more information, go to, call 1-888-PNC-WORK, or visit the PNC information desk in the PennCard office (Franklin Building, Suite, 150).
