At Rockland Trust, we strive every day to be the bank Where Each Relationship Matters® and we believe that our future is tied to the well-being of the communities we serve. Being a good neighbor and giving back to the communities we serve is important to us. Rockland Trust was named by the Boston Business Journal as one of the region’s Top Corporate Charitable Contributors for the 7th consecutive year. In 2020, Rockland Trust and its affiliated foundations donated a combined total of over $2.3 million to support local charities. Being a bank is about more than providing financial products and services—it’s also about being a strong advocate and steward for the community organizations that help support the individuals, families, and businesses that make up our communities. This is a fundamental belief that has been a core element of our culture for more than 114 years.
We have a strong belief that our employees are critical to our success and have worked hard to build a culture where colleagues are respected, cared for, and invested in. We are also proud to share that The Boston Globe has recognized Rockland Trust as one of the “Top Places to Work” in Massachusetts for twelve years in a row. Rockland Trust has also been honored as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign each year since 2016.
Rockland Trust is a strong, secure, and well-capitalized bank. All deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000. Deposits you hold in different ownership categories — such as joint, single, and retirement accounts — are each separately insured up to $250,000. That means, for example, that you could have up to $250,000 in single-name accounts and up to $250,000 in your share of joint accounts and still be fully insured. Following the closing, excess deposit insurance through the Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF) for amounts that exceed FDIC deposit insurance limits will end. Most customers will not be affected by this change. We also participate in the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS). Participation in the CDARS program enables customers to access FDIC insurance on deposits of up to $50 million.
Deposits at East Boston Savings Bank are also insured by the FDIC up to $250,000. If you have accounts at both Rockland Trust and East Boston Savings Bank, under federal law you will continue to receive the same FDIC coverage as if your accounts were still at separate banks for six months after the merger. After six months have passed, if your total aggregate account balances exceed $250,000, any excess may not be covered by FDIC insurance. Certificates of Deposit will continue to receive separate FDIC insurance coverage until the first maturity date after the six-month period.
If you have questions about FDIC insurance on your deposit(s) or CDARS, please visit your nearest East Boston Savings Bank branch or call the East Boston Savings Bank Call Center at 800.657.3272.
In mid-October, we plan to share additional detailed information regarding your accounts and the transition to Rockland Trust. All communications will be sent by U.S. mail, and updated information for all customers will be available at RocklandTrust.com/Welcome.
