Our customer service difference.

All online banks are not created equal.

Bank5 Connect was born from a community bank with a longstanding tradition of providing personal service to its neighbors. The way we see it, the “neighborhood” we serve online may be broader than that of our parent company, BankFive, but our commitment to service is still the cornerstone of everything we do.

At Bank5Connect, you’re always just a call or click away from speaking with an experienced customer service representative, located right here in the U.S., who can answer questions and offer advice. As an online bank with a focus on service, we’re here when our customers need us most.


Quicker responses from real people.

We’ve built a reputation as a different kind of bank. You won’t experience hour-long hold times here, and you won’t reach overseas agents when you call us. Instead, you’ll get one of our friendly, knowledgeable customer service experts who are dedicated to answering your questions and meeting your needs.

Meet Our Team:



Jeff's 15+ years of banking experience have led him to his current role of Digital Banking Center Manager. When he's not leading the Bank5 Connect Call Center team, you can usually find him golfing, fishing, shopping or just hanging out with family and friends (or his goats, chickens, dogs and cats).


Kyle has more than 6 years of banking experience. When he's not assisting Bank5 Connect customers, he can be found watching the NFL network or playing basketball and soccer. He also enjoys a good steak. But whatever you do, don't give him any olives. There's no food he hates more.


Elizabeth brings more than 34 years of banking experience to the table, and when she's not helping Bank5 Connect customers, you can typically find her playing with her granddaughter, binge-watching comedy TV, or enjoying some homemade chicken soup.


Keith has more than 6 years of banking experience. As a child he dreamed of becoming a superhero or a lighthouse keeper, but "none of that panned out," he says, "so banking was the next logical step." And when Keith's not manning the Bank5 Connect phone and chat lines he enjoys reading, running and finding the perfect meme for any scenario.


Cynthia is fluent in both English and French Creole, and has more that 12 years of banking experience under her belt. She can also paint! When she's not taking calls from Bank5 Connect customers, she enjoys spending time with her grandbabies, cozying up with a good book, or listening to some R&B or jazz music.


Margarida has more than 17 years of banking experience and is fluent in both English and Portuguese. In her time off from Bank5 Connect she likes spending quality time with her family and watching Netflix (comedy and romance are her go-to genres). And when she needs a vacation, her first choice is always a cruise.


Martha brings more than 17 years of banking experience to the Bank5 Connect team. When she's not helping our customers she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, watching a good movie with a cup of tea and spending time with her dog, Ace. She also likes classic rock and country music. Her least favorite food? Kale.


Clara has more than 15 years of banking experience and is fluent in both English and Portuguese. When she's not speaking with Bank5 Connect customers, she loves to read and spend time with her family and friends; especially her grandsons. She loves too many books and movies to pick a favorite, but she does have a couple of hidden talents: she can sing and scuba dive!


Zach is the newest addition to the Bank5 Connect team, and we're lucky to have him! When he's not answering the phones, you'll likely find him hanging out with his kids and his dog, Lucy. Buffalo wings are his all-time favorite food, but you'll never finding him eating a pineapple. Yuck.

Don't just take our word for it.

Expecting the worst, got the best.
I had lost a lot of information in a move and expected to have a difficult time when I called customer service. It was the exact opposite. The man who helped me was patient and explained things clearly and stayed on the line with me until my problem was 100% solved. Great job.
