Imagine being able to pay your bills while you're waiting to pick up your son from football practice, sitting through yet another flight delay or waiting for a friend at a coffee shop. Now you can get the tools to manage your finances in the palm of your hand.

Mobile banking through your bank's mobile Web site or app makes it possible. In order for this service to work, you'll have to set up online banking from your bank's Web site on your personal computer and enter information about your payees. Once that's done, you can pay bills on the go, helping you to manage that monthly chore efficiently and make any moment more productive. Plus, you'll save on stamps and paperwork, and never have to make up an excuse for missing a due date again.
