We get pretty attached to our banks don't we? They help us get into our new home, build our business, and save for the future.  Nowadays, banking has become pretty slick with smartphones changing the game. We're just a few clicks away from controlling our cash from anywhere. I think about that sometimes, did we ever think that was possible years ago?  When you think about it, it really is something we would have seen on the Jetson's.

OceanFirst Bank has been proudly serving us here in NJ since 1902, to put that in perspective, that is the same year Theodore Roosevelt became the first American President to ever ride in an automobile.  Don't worry, OceanFirst is still helping families with all their financial needs, but they will be consolidating the branch located at 791 Route 9 into the OceanFirst Bank branch located at 900 Lacey Road.  That change will transpire on December 3rd of this year at 2 pm.

OceanFirst Bank will still be able to serve you at any of their locations through New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia.  They also offer remote banking options such as:
