Account Selection

When selecting an account for a transaction, PNC customers will see a change.

Instead of “generic” account designations, (i.e. Checking 1, Checking 2, etc.) the last four digits of the account will be listed.  

This change will only be for PNC account holders. Non PNC-account holders will continue to see generic account designations.


The PNC ATM Personalization feature makes visiting our ATMs an easier, faster experience.

In the past, a user had to enter three settings (language, receipt and fast cash) in order to enable ATM personalization preferences. With the enhancement, ATM Personalization no longer requires a user to enter all three settings.

Customers personalizing their ATM experiences will be asked to choose a preferred language. After that, languages can be changed in the “Preferences” menu or online through a user account link.

Within Preferences, your language, fast cash and receipt selections can be set up individually as well as altered individually. Also note that the Preferences will include an e-receipt option, so that receipts can be sent to a PNC account-holder’s e-mail address on file.

E-Receipt Feature

As an enhanced option, PNC customers will be able to choose an e-receipt. This means that ATM receipts will be sent to the primary e-mail address customers have registered with PNC. Customers will not be able to alter or input an e-mail address at the ATM. When a user chooses the e-receipt option, that user will be shown the e-mail address on file and asked to confirm that it is correct.

Prepaid Card

PNC SmartAccess® Prepaid Visa® card customers will now be offered ATM options specific to their cards.

That is, ATMs will read prepaid cards and display their corresponding transactions (instead of the comprehensive transaction menu offered to debit card holders). The new function will ensure that PNC SmartAccess prepaid card customers choose eligible transactions. That is, PNC SmartAccess card holders can't accidentally choose inapplicable options and receive an error message.

Two Screen Types, Same Great Service

We have two types of ATM screens - screens that are key-controlled and touch-screens. You can expect enhancements at both types of ATMs.

The enhanced screens won’t impact the function. PNC Bank ATMs still offer check-cashing and check images on receipts. Deposits made before 10 p.m. ET (9 p.m. CT) will still be considered to be made that day.

Screen-side Key Controls

On this ATM type, the user chooses transactions via the push-button keys flanking the screen.

Touch-Screen ATMs

On this ATM type, the user indicates choices by touching the screen.
