NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Carver Federal Savings Bank ("Carver" or the "Bank"), a federally chartered stock savings bank and a certified Minority Depository Institution ("MDI"), announced today that the Bank recently expanded its online presence to include consumer checking and savings accounts across several key markets in the Northeast. The presence has expanded to nine states, from Rhode Island to Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
Consumers located in Washington, D.C., and the following states can now open a personal online account with Carver: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia (PA), Rhode Island, and Virginia.
"Consumers and businesses today are increasingly interested in putting their bank deposit dollars to work at institutions that reinvest in their communities," said Michael T. Pugh, President and CEO of Carver. "Since launching our online consumer accounts in these Northeast markets, the response has been positive with approximately $5 million in new bank deposit received and approximately 1,000 new accounts. On behalf of the Bank, I want to welcome these customers to the Carver family, and we look forward to building a long-term relationship with them and the communities in which they live and work."
Carver is consistently awarded an "Outstanding" rating for community reinvestment by the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency based on the geographic distribution of the Bank's loan portfolio given the communities it serves. The Bank further distinguishes itself by reinvesting approximately $0.80 of each deposit dollar back into the diverse low- to moderate-income communities it serves through competitively priced loans.
