What can you tell me about Citibank?
With a history that ranges back to the early 1800s, Citibank is a massive financial institution that has a reach that extends into more than 35 countries and more than 3,700 branches. They offer a full line of banking services like checking accounts, savings accounts, credit cards and loans as well as investment items and insurance policies.
One particularly interesting factoid concerning Citibank is that they are one of the financial institutions that was bailed out during the late 2000s. Now, what makes that interesting is that, though everyone seemed to be complaining and angry about the bailout program, the United States has since made money on the deal with Citibank. This is because Citibank actually paid back all of their loans from the government, which equates to about $50 billion in the original funding.
How do I create an online login for my Citibank checking, saving or other account with them?
Depending on whether you are creating your login to handle a bank account or manage a credit card through Citibank, you will need various bits of information. For those of you looking to do this for a bank account, you will need your debit card number, the pin for the card and either the last four of your SSN or your bank account number. On the other hand, those who are looking to make an account to handle their credit card online will need to have their credit card number, the security word linked to the card and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
Once you have that information prepared, go to the Citibank Register for Online Access page. Enter all of the requested information as you go through each of the registration fields, and when you are done you will be able to log in to your account, which I will describe the steps to in the following question.
