Fifth Third is among the largest money managers in the Midwest and, as of December 31, 2014, had $308 billion in assets under care, of which it managed $27 billion for individuals, corporations and not-for-profit organizations.

Fifth Third traces its origins to the Bank of the Ohio Valley, which opened its doors in Cincinnati in 1858. In 1871, that bank was purchased by the Third National Bank. With the turn of the century came the union of the Third National Bank and the Fifth National Bank, and eventually the organization became known as "Fifth Third Bank" in 1969.

The bank received $3.4 billion from the U.S. Treasury as part of its Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) in 2008.


Insurance Coverage - Includes health, dental, life and disability insurance.

Profit Sharing
Fifth Third has made "wealth accumulation" a reality through Profit Sharing. On an annual basis, active employees may receive contributions from the Bank's profits. The contribution is based on Bank performance and ranges from 0-10% with a target of 4%. The contribution is placed in a retirement account set up for each employee. Profit sharing contributions vest after five years of service. Eligible compensation for Profit Sharing is accumulated from January 1st to December 31st of each year.
401(k) Plan
The 401(k) Plan allows employees to contribute between 1% and 20% of eligible compensation. Participation may begin after 30 days of service. These contributions are made on a pre-tax basis, which means federal and state income taxes are lower. Also, employees may elect to make after-tax deferrals into the Plan; however, the total contribution may not exceed 20%.
401(k) Match
As a bonus, Fifth Third offers a 100% match on the first 4% of pretax contributions made by employees. The match vests after three years of service.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Fifth Third Stock is an excellent way to accumulate wealth for the future. Fifth Third offers employees the opportunity to purchase  Fifth Third Bancorp common stock through payroll deductions. The Bank provides a 15% match on employee contributions. Employees pay no service fees or commissions.
