When your address bar turns green, be sure to look to see that the owner of this Web site is the organization you intended to visit.


From the moment account information leaves your computer to the time it enters PiggyBanc’s system, all online access is encrypted. PiggyBanc employs some of the strongest forms of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today. During any transaction, our 128-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. Additionally private information collected to verify your identity is stored in an encrypted fashion in our database. PiggyBanc’s computers possess the proper formulas to turn this code back into meaningful information and complete your transaction. Look for a “closed lock” icon in your browser to confirm if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with “https://...” indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption. The “s” stands for “secured.”
