Q: Does Rockland Trust offer Deposit Insurance?
A: Yes. Rockland Trust is a strong, secure, and well-capitalized bank and a safe place for your deposits. All deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000. This coverage can be increased for larger deposits through titling of accounts.
Deposits at Milford National Bank are similarly insured by the FDIC. As a result, the merger will not affect deposit insurance coverage for many customers. If you have accounts at both Rockland Trust and Milford National 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. Certificates of Deposit will continue to receive separate FDIC insurance coverage until the first maturity date after the six-month period. After six months have passed, if your total account balance(s) exceed $250,000, any excess may not be covered by FDIC insurance.
Like Milford National Bank, Rockland Trust also participates in Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS). A CDARS account enables customers to insure their deposits up to $50 million.

Q: What will happen to the direct deposit of payroll or Social Security payments going into my account?
A: Direct deposit of payroll, Social Security, pension, or government payments will automatically continue after your account converts to Rockland Trust. However, a notification of change will be sent to the person/company that is initiating the transaction, asking them to change the routing and transit number to 011304478, as the Milford National Bank routing and transit number will expire in one year. After the conversion, you may receive a paper check during the time the person/company is updating your records. Please contact your provider for any additional instructions.
