  • ​​A safe deposit box is a place to store important items that would be difficult to replace. The box also helps offer privacy and security.

  • ​Yes. You can jointly rent your safe deposit box with a spouse, child or other person who would have unrestricted access to the safe deposit box. The additional renter(s) must sign the bank's rental contract as a joint renter.  

    ​An alternative is to appoint a Power of Attorney (POA) to have access to your safe deposit box.

  • ​​We recommend that you bring your items, so that you can be sure to get the right size box for your items.  

  • ​While contents of safe deposit boxes are not FDIC-insured, the boxes are monitored by security systems within the branch. As an added layer of security, it takes two different keys to open the box. You hold one key and the bank holds the other key. 

    ​In addition, when you rent your box, you and any others that will have access to your box must sign a card. Upon accessing the box, branch personnel validate the signature. For your protection, if the signature of the person seeking access to your box does not match one of these authorized signatures, admittance will be denied.

  • ​​While we cannot guarantee that your box is fully protected from fire, flood or other disasters, safe deposit boxes and the vaults that house them are made with highly resistant materials to help combat disasters.​

  • ​​Yes. You can help prevent water damage by sealing items in airtight bags or containers. You may also want to keep a list of the contents included in your box, put your name on each item, and make copies or take photos of important documents and items. 

  • ​​No. The FDIC only insures deposits in deposit accounts at insured institutions. A safe deposit box is strictly a storage space provided by the bank.​

    IMPORTANT INSURANCE NOTICES:
