GE Expanding Web Offerings
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Two months after launching an Internet site for personal finances, General Electric Co. has signed on with CompuBank to expand the site to include full-serving banking.
GE Financial Network, www.gefn.com, came online in February.
The site initially included information on annuities, auto and life insurance, loans and mutual funds. The Web site also provided for consumers to set up a savings account or apply for a credit card and obtain immediate approval online.
``By adding banking to our existing breadth of offerings, GEFN continues to give consumers the best financial products and services to meet all of their financial needs,″ said Bill Goings, senior vice president of e-Business.
With Tuesday’s announced alliance with CompuBank, GEFN consumers will be able to establish checking, savings and money market accounts, write checks and access funds through automated teller machines, GE said.
In addition, consumers can arrange direct-deposits and electronic fund transfers, re-order checks online and take advantage of services such as domestic wire service and bill paying features.
CompuBank also offers certificates of deposit and Visa check cards.
