Is my money safe?
We understand this is an unprecedented time for many with the market volatility. Please remember that your deposits held at Grundy Bank are insured up to the maximum allowable amount by law. For levels of coverage, we encourage you to visit the FDIC’s Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE). This will allow you to estimate the total coverage for all of your different deposit accounts such as checking, savings, money market, and certificates of deposits.
Beware of scams
This is also a great time to remind you about possible scams. Unfortunately, scammers use times of vulnerability to attack. Please keep in mind we will never call you to ask for your account number, your social security number, your online banking credentials, etc. We also remind you to never give out your online banking credentials to anyone and keep your personal identification number (PIN) private. Keep yourself protected by protecting your personal information.
