Why Truist Bank?

SunTrust and BB&T merged in 2019 to form Truist, becoming the sixth-largest bank in the U.S. with more than 10 million customers. WIth that said, as of early 2022, they were still rolling out the merger. They position themselves as being community-focused, pledging to "lend or invest $60 billion to low- and moderate-income and minority borrowers" from 2020-2022 alone.

New customers can now open an account under the Truist brand, but all SunTrust and BB&T accounts will eventually be folded in – so if you're interested, stop by whichever brand is most readily available in your area.

Truist assures that most customers won't need updated account numbers – and that they're committed to making the process easy for those few customers that do – but, as with any merger, know that the risk of inconvenience in needing new checks, debit cards, or in updating bills that draw from the account is certainly a possibility once the merger is finalized.

Additionally, it's safe to assume that their products or tools are in line with the other major national banks – IE, a wider breadth of options but lower interest rates than most credit unions or online-only banks.
