Savings & Money Market Accounts

Effective April 29, 2020, HomeTrust Bank has suspended the limitation on savings and money market transactions in line with the Federal Reserve Board’s recent ruling in response to COVID-19. Previously, federal regulation capped certain savings and money market transfers and withdrawals at six per statement cycle. Savings and money market transactions will remain unlimited until the Federal Reserve Board issues additional guidance clarifying whether or not this change will become permanent. Please return to this page for updates or further changes.

Commercial and Business Loans

For businesses experiencing disruption of normal operation during this time, we will work with you to find the solution to fit your business needs.

Those solutions may include:

  • Interest only and loan payment deferrals
  • Working capital loans
  • Small Business and SBA assistance and guidance
  • More broad, long-term solutions tailored to your specific circumstance

Contact your Relationship Manager for trusted, solid advice on how HomeTrust can help you manage your business through this difficult time. Our goal is to work with you through any disruptions to your business and emerge stronger when they have been overcome.

Distance Banking

To align with the need to maintain social distancing, remote banking can help keep you and your staff safe. We’re ready to help you get started with the right tools.

  • Remote Deposit Capture: Scan checks from home or office, reducing exposure to others. This also saves time if you normally send staff to the branch.
  • ACH/Wire: Eliminate paper and reduce the chance of surface transmission of the virus by using electronic funds transfers rather than checks. We can also help you receive ACH credits instead of “bill pay” checks. ACH and other electronic payments can be initiated remotely, with no check printer needed.
  • Online Banking: Commercial Center can be custom configured to meet your company’s specific needs.
  • Fraud Prevention: Double down on your controls and diligence to prevent fraud. Consider using Positive Pay, if you don’t already. Unfortunately, we anticipate that fraud attempts will increase as a result of this pandemic.

Contact your Relationship Manager to discuss how to get started.
