Baby boomers, who were born between 1946 and 1964, according to a Gallup poll, have distinct preferences for managing a savings or checking account.
Although millennials, who were born between 1980 and 1996, are hip to the latest in banking technology and innovations, many older Americans are slower to adopt them. However, the Gallup study found that most boomers use online banking. Seventy-five percent of these poll respondents said they used online services within the past six months, and 71 percent said they use online services at least once a week.
What boomers want from their banks
If you're among the older Americans who are at or nearing retirement age, you may find we offer many banking services that fit your needs. According to U.S. News & World Report, there are a few banking benefits that are highly sought by boomers:
- Convenience: As indicated by the Gallup poll, having easier access to accounts is favored older Americans. If you haven't yet considered Landmark Internet or Mobile Banking, you stand to benefit more than you'd assume with on-the-go tools to manage your finances.
