Our Commitment to Your Safety - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Plan


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:  Drive-ups, ATMs, and Electronic Banking Remain Open

The health and safety of our customers, employees, and communities continues to be our top priority.

The statewide stay-at-home advisory and closure of nonessential businesses exempt banks and other essential services. As such, we continue to do our part to slow the spread of the virus while ensuring that you stay connected to your money.

Our Commitment to our Customers and Communities

Since 1889, bankHometown has supported its customers and communities during times of prosperity and optimism and through times of hardship and doubt.  Through it all, bankHometown has been dedicated to ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our customers, employees, and members of the community.  That is why we continue to monitor the developments and potential impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.   

A Change in Deposit Insurance Coverage

Effective March 17, 2020, The Co-operative Central Bank (CCB) and its Share Insurance Fund (SIF) merged into the Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF). As a result, bankHometown has become a member of the DIF.

Rest assured that your deposits with bankHometown will continue to be insured in full. Each depositor is insured to at least $250,000 by the FDIC. Effective March 17, all deposits above the FDIC limit are insured by the DIF.

The DIF has a long history of protecting deposits.  Since 1934, when the DIF was created, no depositor has lost a penny in a member bank.
