Banking Services

The Cecilian Bank understands that time is a valuable asset. With the help of our online services we provide you a way of making the most of that time. You will be able to bank at your convenience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

No Saturday Hours

Since 1903 The Cecilian Bank has been closed on Saturdays. One of the bank’s Core Values is “Family”, so we strongly believe that being closed on Saturday gives our employees more time to be with their family. We have worked hard throughout the years to advance our technology with products and services that allow us to maintain quality customer service and still remain closed on Saturdays. We offer online banking, where customers can transfer funds between accounts, make loan payments, and view their account history. We have ATMs at each banking center. If you use your ATM or Debit Card at a foreign ATM, a fee may be assessed for using that ATM. We offer telephone banking, direct deposit, night drops, mobile banking with mobile deposit capture, all to meet the customer’s financial needs for hours that the bank may be closed. We now offer Image Deposit ATMs at our Hardinsburg, Irvington, and Leitchfield Square Banking Centers. At these ATMs you can deposit cash and checks without envelopes or waiting.

New Account Checklist

We try to make life a little easier for you, our customer. By following the checklist below, you will have all the information you need to open a new account.

  • Two (2) forms of identification, with at least one (1) having your picture
  • Date of Birth, Social Security Number, Phone Number and Current Address. If your ID does not have your current address, we need a utility bill or a pay stub with the new address listed as proof of your residence.
  • Businesses should supply their Employer Identification Number (EIN) and articles of incorporation, partnership agreement, etc.
  • Estate Accounts will need the death certificate, appointment of executor/executrix by the court, and an estate IRS identification number.
  • Power of Attorney...we will need a copy of the completed document demonstrating your appointment as a POA.
  • Individual Retirement Account(IRA)...if you are rolling over funds to a new IRA, you need to set up your new IRA first before requesting the rollover funds from the other party. Opening a new IRA? You may want to consult your tax preparer to help decide which type of IRA is best for you.
  • For a Legal Entity Customer, per Federal regulation, as of May 11, 2018, the bank will be required to collect the name, address, date of birth and Social Security number for each individual who owns, directly or indirectly, 25 percent or more of the equity interests of the legal entity customer and the same information for the individual with significant responsibility for managing the legal entity customer. This applies each time a new account is opened. The bank may also ask to see a copy of a driver’s license or other identifying document for each beneficial owner listed.

Beneficial Ownership Rule

Effective May 11, 2018, to help the government fight financial crime, Federal regulation requires certain financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information about the beneficial owners of legal entity customers. Legal entities can be abused to disguise involvement in terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, corruption, fraud, and other financial crimes. Requiring the disclosure of key individuals who own or control a legal entity (i.e., the beneficial owners) helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute these crimes.

This Beneficial Ownership form must be completed by the person opening a new account on behalf of a legal entity with any of the following U.S. financial institutions: (i) a bank or credit union; (ii) a broker or dealer in securities; (iii) a mutual fund; (iv) a futures commission merchant; or (v) an introducing broker in commodities.

For the purposes of this rule, a legal entity includes a corporation, limited liability company, or other entity that is created by filing of a public document with a Secretary of State or similar office, a general partnership, and any similar business entity formed in the United States or a foreign country. Legal entity does not include sole proprietorships, unincorporated associations, or natural persons opening accounts on their own behalf.

You will be required to provide the name, address, date of birth, and Social Security number (or passport number or other similar information) for the following individuals (i.e. the beneficial owners):

  • Each individual, if any, who owns, directly or indirectly, 25 percent or more of the equity interests of the legal entity customer (e.g., each natural person that owns 25 percent or more of the shares of a corporation); and
  • An individual with significant responsibility for managing the legal entity customer (e.g. a Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Managing Member, General Partner, President, Vice President, or Treasurer).

If you have any questions or need assistance with your Beneficial Ownership form, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 270-982-4822 or visit any of our 15 banking centers. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving your business banking needs.
