ICBA Services, Inc.

  • We understand how hard it is for independent banks to compete effectively in the credit card market. We’ve partnered with ICB Services, Inc. to offer bank-branded credit cards to our members. The ICBS Credit Card Program gives your bank the opportunity to offer Visa credit cards at an affordable price—with customizable options. As the Issuer, your bank owns the receivables, which enables you to decide what type of pricing you’d like to offer your customers, and pick the options which best suit your bank’s needs. All participating member banks share in the costs, and because of their combined number of cards, they receive a higher tier of interchange than if they operated alone.

Identity Theft & Security Solutions

ID TheftSmart 

ID Theft Smart

  • Protect your customer’s identity with professional support for a fraction of the cost. Nearly 2 in 5 Americans have experienced identity theft firsthand, or know someone who has. Identity theft is a crime in which an impostor obtains key pieces of personal identifying information such as Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers and uses them for their own personal gain. It can start with lost or stolen wallets, stolen mail, a data breach, computer virus, “phishing” scams, or paper documents thrown in the garbage. United Bankers’ Agency, (UBA) has partnered with Kroll, the leading global provider in risk mitigation and response, to provide community banks with a comprehensive identity restoration solution called ID TheftSmart, which they can in turn provide to their customers.

Credit Monitoring

  • Credit Monitoring  – Help your customers detect identity theft and prevent inaccurate information from appearing on their credit reports.
