COVID-19 Customer Information & Updates
Better days lie ahead. We'll get there together.
The past few months have certainly changed life as we know it. Handshakes and hugs have been replaced by social distancing and conversations through plexiglass. Going out has been replaced by staying in. Lives have been lost, bonds have been strengthened, and heroes have emerged.
As an essential business, we’ve been serving our customers daily since the pandemic first struck. Our drive-up windows and ATMs have remained open, our lobbies are available by appointment, and customers have become more comfortable with online banking, mobile deposit, bill pay, and other electronic banking services. While our mode of operation has changed a bit, our commitment to our customers has not.
Needless to say, our top priority remains the safety of our customers, employees, and communities. When we feel it is prudent to do so, we will fully reopen our lobbies with some new safety guidelines in place. Please be assured that these new safety measures follow the best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and meet or exceed the guidelines mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the State of Connecticut.
I would also like to take a moment to salute our employees for their tremendous efforts during this pandemic. Our Commercial Lending and Loan Servicing teams have been working around-the-clock to help local businesses and community organizations impacted by COVID-19. Likewise, our branch staff and call center staff has gone above and beyond to help customers with their banking needs. I am incredibly grateful for their dedication and commitment and am proud to call them my colleagues. Each of them truly epitomizes what better banking’s all about.
While the days and weeks ahead will be an adjustment for us all, I am confident we will get through this together. Please contact our Customer Call Center (413.568.1911 or 800.995.5734) should you need assistance or have any questions or concerns. As always, we’re here to help.
