In 2017, Rhinebeck Bank’s Retail Banking department began rolling out their Universal Banker program in the branches with the goal of providing you with the best service possible. There is no longer the notion of “John Doe is out to lunch – can they call you back?” The objective of this program is to make sure our customer’s service and experiences are as seamless as possible, and that they can be assisted by the same employee throughout their transaction. Former Tellers and Relationship Bankers have transitioned to this Universal Banker role.

Here at Rhinebeck Bank we have an array of entry level positions. When we interview for these openings, many candidates state that they are “looking for a career, not just a job.” What does that mean?

Do you remember your first job as a teenager? The happiness you felt at earning your own money and the freedom to pay for things yourself? Today, teens between the ages of 13 and 18 are most likely to babysit, mow lawns, or perhaps even have their own businesses on eBay or other sites. I know quite a few young entrepreneurs who make money by selling homemade doggie treats, glitter slime, and even buying sneakers and selling them online at a profit! Teenagers are finding new and interesting ways to earn money, so how can we help teach them to use that money wisely?
I had the honor of visiting the 9/11 Tribute Museum in Manhattan this past week. Mark Malone, VP Area Sales leader and I traveled down to film our 9/11 Tribute episode of Wake Up with Rhinebeck Bank. This experience was extremely moving. We saw artifacts from the tragic event, learned about 9/11 and heard from survivors. These survivors had so much to share.
When exactly is the right age to start teaching children about money? My opinion is that it’s really never too early to start! In fact, the earlier you can start to talk to kids about money, the more those lessons will stick with them as they grow up. Here are some great tips to help kids as young as three or four start to understand the importance of money:

People often get confused when they hear the term co-sign. Sometimes people think they are not really responsible for the debt; they think they are merely helping someone out. Make no mistake; if you co-sign a loan for someone, it is exactly the same as if you borrowed the money yourself! By co-signing on a loan you are accepting full responsibility for payment of that loan, including late charges and any fees associated with collecting the debt.
