Sberbank is the largest financial and credit organization in modern Russia, the history of which dates back to the 19th century, during the reign of Nicholas I. The direct predecessors of a major player in the domestic financial sector is Sberbank of the USSR. It was reorganized and received the status of a joint stock company, and in 1991 became the property of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
In 2012, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation sold part of the shares (7.6%) to the ownership of private investors. At the moment, Sberbank continues to remain within the framework of the PJSC, the main shareholder of which is the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
Savings Bank is the main banking organization in Russia. If we talk about the company in numbers, the results are as follows:

Sberbank serves its customers throughout the country. The number of additional offices is more than 19,000.
There is no exact schedule according to which all branches and additional offices work. This is explained by the fact that all specialized units have their own schedules, which may be unlike the work schedule of the neighboring department. All these are separate structures with their own management and schedule. In addition, the bank has duty departments with its own special schedule.
Usually, the work schedule of a particular branch is approved by the banks head office. This can be explained by different time zones, as well as various financial opportunities and needs of the population.
We can say about Sberbank that it is the largest service provider for its customers. This can be explained by the fact that the company always introduces modern technologies and takes maximum care of its customers.
The main activity is credit services to individuals and legal entities. Here, each client can choose the best loan product. Each season is characterized by new offers and promotions.

With a high level of competition, all credit organizations try to provide their customers with the most profitable products with additional services and capabilities. In this regard, Sberbank also compares favorably with its competitors and has a large selection of regular, bonus debit and credit plastic cards.

Individual bank offers make particular products particularly attractive. When personalized, it becomes possible to become a user of the most comfortable option with minimal investment and free terms of service.
Settlement accounts are required for both individuals and legal entities. They are needed for cashless transactions or the accumulation of cash. In this capacity, Sberbank also provides the necessary services.
Before coming directly to the bank and opening an account, you need to understand which account and which currency unit is needed on it. So, the accounts are current, deposit or card.
Current - is necessary for the placement and storage of funds. No interest is accrued on the remaining money. The main nuance is that for operations it is necessary to appear in the department.
Card - usually just contacts the current one and allows you to carry out operations using plastic cards. We have already talked about Sberbank as a leader in the field of servicing bank cards.
Deposit - is necessary for the accumulation of money. Interest is accrued on the balance of funds. It differs from the previous two in that it will not work to use the money until the expiration of the concluded contract. Work with deposit accounts, at the expense of interest on deposits, provides the account holder with protection against inflation.
In addition to basic or individual banking services, each client in any branch, or without leaving home, can call the hotline. Operators will help to resolve any issue. A call center is available for calling by phone number 8-800-555-55-50. Also, a variety of information about Sberbank can always be found on the official page of the company.
If you need to resolve any issue, you should prepare minimum information about yourself that will help the operator identify you.
