ATM/Debit Cards

This card doubles as an ATM card and an electronic checkbook. Use it to access your accounts at an ATM and make purchases at any of the 14 million locations worldwide that accept Mastercard®. And just like a check, the money is deducted from your checking account, rather than charging it like a credit card. 

Credit Cards

Do you pay off your entire credit card bill each month or do you carry a balance? Do you need a card for business travel or personal convenience? However you use credit, West Shore Bank offers a variety of options with the features you want. Personal Credit Card Details

Gift & Travel Cards

Give the only gift that never gets returned, a gift card, or purchase a travel card for ease and safety when you are traveling. They are available at any branch and are accepted wherever you see the Mastercard® logo.

Where do you keep important legal documents, insurance policies or family keepsakes? A West Shore Bank safe deposit box can store your valuables or important papers and are available in a variety of sizes. Each rents for a small annual fee and are accessible at several offices. 

Savings Bonds

The Bureau of the Public Debt announced that as of January 1, 2012, paper savings bonds will no longer be sold at financial institutions. This action, which supports the U.S. Department of the Treasury's goal to increase the number of electronic transactions with citizens and businesses, will save American taxpayers approximately $70 million over the first five years.

You can however, purchase bonds directly from the U.S. Treasury. Go to the Treasury's website to learn about purchasing savings bonds:
