HVBS offers Direct Deposit of Dividend Distributions

Hocking Valley BancShares, Inc. is pleased to offer direct deposit of dividend distributions. Direct Deposit protects our shareholders from misplaced, lost, or stolen checks, and helps you receive your dividend payment faster.

When you participate in Direct Deposit, funds are electronically transmitted to your account on the same day checks are mailed to shareholders not using the service. There is no need to wait until your check arrives in the mail and no need to make a trip to your bank.

Shareholders whose distributions are directly deposited should be sure that the name on the Direct Deposit Form matches the name on the bank account. Shareholders should also continue to update their address with the Bank.  Failure to do so typically results in Hocking Valley Bancshares, Inc. mail being returned as undeliverable. When this occurs, dividend distributions are held and may be turned over to the State of Ohio as Unclaimed Property.

If you would like to sign up for Direct Deposit, please complete the Direct Deposit Form and return it to us at Hocking Valley BancShares, Inc. Attn: Internal Transfer Agent, 7 W. Stimson Avenue, Athens, Ohio 45701.
