Military Banking


We're here to support all those who serve and their families with community programs, products and financial insights

Our Commitment

To active military, veterans and your families, we recognize the commitments and sacrifices you and your families make to serve our country, as well as the unique financial challenges you encounter.

We believe in supporting you by helping you take positive steps with your finances through banking benefits and financial expertise and content. In addition, we're committed to making a positive difference within the communities where you live and work. Here are just a few of the ways we are doing just that:

Mutt Strut

In partnership with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc. PNC sponsors this week-long event, in which we join together with other corporate partners, foundations, and members of the community to help fund the training of medical service dogs for veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress (PTS), traumatic brain injury, and other combat-related injuries.

Military Support and Recruiting Practices

Each year, we collaborate with the Military Warriors Support Foundation to help eliminate the financial burdens often associated with returning to civilian life.

PNC has created a Military Employee Business Resource Group with the goal of increasing awareness of the unique skills veterans bring to the workforce. The group aims to recruit and retain military talent by enhancing that talent through professional development, mentoring and community engagement opportunities.

Important Legal Disclosures & Information

  1. The customer must have $1,000 or more in aggregate qualifying direct deposits into their account per statement period.  Deposits must be made to the Spend account for Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend.  The account must include a valid 10-digit Military Banking code (the code must be on the Spend account if it’s a Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend).  For Performance Checking or Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend, there isn't a monthly service charge if the total amount of all qualifying direct deposits credited to your account during the monthly statement period is at least $1,000. A qualifying Direct Deposit is defined as a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck or other regular monthly income electronically deposited into a Performance Checking account or the Spend Account for Virtual Wallet Performance by an employer or outside agency. Transfers from one account to another, or deposits made at a branch or ATM, don't qualify as Direct Deposits.

  2. Obtaining a PNC Bank credit card account is subject to credit approval. To qualify for the $100 credit card account cash award, when apply for a new credit card, the PNC Military Banking customer must have an eligible PNC Military Banking Virtual Wallet with Performance Select, Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend, Virtual Wallet Checking Pro, Performance Checking account, or Performance Select Checking account, open a new qualifying PNC credit card, and make at least $1,000 in purchases within the first three billing cycles following credit card account opening.  The $100 cash award is not available to PNC Military Banking customers who have already opened a qualifying PNC credit card and were credited the $100 cash award to the same eligible checking account within the last 24 months. 

    The $100 will be in the form of a credit to the eligible checking account within 90 days following the purchase that enabled you to meet the $1,000 minimum requirement. The $100 cash award will be identified as “CREDITS WORKPLACE MORTG" on your monthly checking account statement.  Your PNC Military Banking Checking account must remain open in order for you to receive the $100 cash award.  The $100 cash award may be subject to tax reporting. Limit one $100 cash award per PNC Military Banking eligible checking account in a 24-month period. The 24-month period begins on the date the most recent $100 credit card account cash award was credited to the eligible checking account.

    As used in this offer, the term “purchases” has the same meaning as “qualifying purchase” in the PNC points Program reward terms and conditions, as “purchase" in the PNC Cash Rewards Program reward terms and conditions, or as "purchase" under the account terms for PNC Core. That means that, in general, as used in this offer, "purchases" does not mean all transactions you may make with your credit card account. Some limited transactions, such as cash advance transactions (including the purchase of cash equivalent products) and balance transfers, are excluded. Also, fees and interest, even if included in the purchase balance on your account, never earn rewards and are not treated as purchases for purposes of qualifying for the cash award offer. For details about excluded transactions, please see the complete reward program terms and conditions available on pnc.com/creditcards.

    For details on reward programs, please refer to the applicable reward terms and conditions, which are available at pnc.com/creditcards.  This offer may be modified or discontinued at any time and without notice.  Must apply for the credit card at the branch/Solution Center or by calling the PNC Care Center.

    A qualifying, automated mortgage payment is defined as a recurring PNC Mortgage loan payment electronically deducted from an eligible PNC Military Banking checking account.

The Military Banking checking account must remain open in order for you to receive the $300 reward, which will be credited to the eligible checking account within 90 days after conditions have been met and will be identified as “CreditsWorkPlaceMiltar” on your monthly checking account statement. $300 reward may be subject to tax reporting.
