Wow I just wrote an answer to almost the exact same question/ Like I was telling the other guy, if you want to check out bank balance online, the best thing to do is to contact your bank.
- First, find out of online banking is even available. On some accounts it isn't.
- If it is, asking for a guide brochure or whatever info they have about accessing your account online. Banks love giving stuff like this away, so don't be shy to ask for more info or something to read about online banking.
- If your bank doesn't provide these services, close your account and switch banks! It's 2013 you can view pretty much anything online, why would your bank be so backward to not have implemented online banking accounts?
