USAccess Bank said it offers customers the advantages of the
Internet–speed, convenience and value–with the product breadth and
security of a
well-managed, well-capitalized, FDIC-insured financial institution.

“USAccess Bank takes banking to the next level, providing nationwide access
to high-value products
and services,” said bank president Maria L. Bouvette. “We also take banking
to where the people are–on the Internet.”

The bank is a division of The Central Bank USA Inc., a subsidiary of Porter

financial institutions.

USAccess Bank offers secured and unsecured online loans and lines of credit
that serve personal and business purposes. Additionally, it has personal and

financial services.

The bank’s money market account yields a 5.30 percent APY and its one-year CD

“Our banking products will be aggressively priced to
reflect the cost advantages of doing business over the Internet,” Bouvette
said.
