12/21/2017: President’s Message – Winter 2017

Welcome to Seneca Savings, where we serve you by providing better banking solutions.

The winter season has arrived, and so has the season of giving. At Seneca Savings, we’re in the giving spirit, too, which is why we’ve made several improvements and are now offering a host of new products to better serve your banking needs. Our goal is to always offer products that make your life easier. That’s why we’ve updated our account lineup for whatever you need, wherever you are in life. These options will become available in January, so be sure to watch for information on our new offerings.

Additionally, you may have noticed improvements we’ve made to our North Syracuse branch. We’re pleased to provide our customers with a new, modern drive-through lane, as well as a new ATM and night depository lane. We’ve updated our look inside, too, with a newly remodeled interior and a complimentary coffee bar as a way of thanking you for stopping in and banking with us. We’ve also improved the exterior of our Baldwinsville branch, and plans are in the works for a 2018-2019 interior remodel of this office.

We’ve also made life a little easier for our customers who are also landlords, by adding ZRent to our product lineup. With ZRent, your tenants can easily pay their rent online, and it is conveniently deposited directly into your account. What’s more, ZRent is absolutely free for landlords who have a Seneca Savings operating account. All you need to do is sign up and invite your tenants. From there, individual tenants can have their rent automatically debited from their accounts and deposited into yours. It’s that easy!

Not to mention, we’ve updated our website to create an easier online banking experience. Our new and improved website is easier to navigate, provides greater ability to organize your banking by accounts, and offers an updated design. Even more importantly, our online banking and bill pay is safe, secure and easy to use from your laptop, tablet or Smartphone, giving you 24-hour access to your accounts.

Be on the lookout in 2018 for our new and improved statements, making it easier to manage your accounts. We will also be rolling out a full suite of business online banking tools in mid-2018 to include ACH origination, remote deposit capture, etc.

‘Tis the season to enjoy better banking and get the customer service you deserve from Seneca Savings. Please feel free to browse our website to learn about all of our product offerings and how we can help you with virtually all of your banking needs – from savings and checking accounts, to loans that fit most any need, to investment services. We are truly your community bank, and we’re here to help.

Best wishes for a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year, as well as special times with family and friends that this season brings. Thank you for choosing Seneca Savings and Financial Quest for your financial needs this winter.


Respectfully yours,

Joseph G. Vitale

President – CEO & Director
