Hit the road with your Hancock Whitney Debit Card

Hurricane warnings mean heavy traffic. Watch weather news to anticipate storm movements, then get cash or Travelers Cheques as well as other supplies days in advance of the storm's approach. In fact, keep some extra money on hand at all times during hurricane season. In a forced evacuation, rely on the convenience of your Hancock Whitney Debit Card. Use your debit card everywhere Visa® is accepted and at all Hancock Whitney ATMs with fee-free withdrawals. Don't forget to take along checkbooks and refills for all your accounts.

 

Credit Cards

You can also rely on the convenience, flexibility and purchasing power of your Hancock Whitney VISA® Platinum Credit Card for purchases before, during and after evacuation. Credit cards can also be used as an additional cash access resource.

Business Resources

If you own or manage a business or a non-profit organization, you should consider taking these simple steps to prepare your organization for the possibility of a hurricane evacuation.

Pay your employees no matter where they are

Mail service to and from disaster-affected areas can cause major issues for employees waiting for paychecks to arrive. Instead of being dependent upon paper checks, use Hancock Whitney Bank's electronic options: 1) direct deposit to distribute payroll to your employees; or 2) have your employees' payroll deposited directly to a MY PayCard. Contact your banker today to learn more about electronic payroll at Hancock Whitney Bank.

 

Hit the road with your Hancock Whitney Business Debit Card

Your Business Debit Card offers the same convenience and security that your Hancock Whitney Debit Card offers you personally. You can rely on the convenience of your Hancock Whitney Business Debit Card. Use your debit card everywhere Visa® is accepted and at all Hancock Whitney ATMs with fee-free withdrawals. Don't forget to take along checkbooks and refills for all your accounts.

 

Credit Cards

You can also rely on the convenience, flexibility and security of your Hancock Whitney VISA® Business Credit Card to help manage company expenses before, during and after an evacuation. Accepted worldwide, your card also offers travel and emergency assistance along with other important benefits.

 

Access cash in a pinch

In the uncertainty of a disaster, it's a challenge to plan for cash flow. A Hancock Whitney Business Line of Credit (BLOC) can help you be ready for whatever cash issues come your way. Use the BLOC for overdraft protection on your business checking account. Or use BLOC checks for direct payment to vendors or to fund payroll for your employees so that they, too, can be on their way out of the eye of the storm.
