QUESTIONS & ANSWERS 

Q.  Why did you merge?

A.  In today’s banking environment, small community banks find it increasingly challenging to remain competitive with big banks, adhere to the many new regulations, and offer customers innovative products while trying to keep costs down.  Both banks have been strong on their own, and together will be even stronger for generations to come. 

 

Q.  Will you be closed during normal banking hours at any time during the merger transition?

A.  In order to allow sufficient time for our two systems to be merged, all locations will be closed on Saturday, August 12, 2017. **

Q.  Can I continue to use my existing supply of checks and deposit tickets?

A.  Yes.  Continue using your current checks and deposit tickets until they run out.  If you reorder from a supplier other than Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan Association, please note the name change and the routing number change to 221972234.

Q.  Will my direct deposit, automatic payments and/or automatic transfers continue following the merger?

A.  Yes.  Any direct deposit into your account and recurring electronic payments or transfers from your account will continue without interruption.  However, we do encourage you to review your automatic transfers following the merger to confirm they are working correctly.   

Q.  Will my ATM & Debit card continue to work?

A.  Yes.  Your current ATM & Debit card will continue to work on a limited basis, because our systems will be converting over the weekend of August 12-13.  Therefore, please have alternate forms of payment available.  We will be issuing new Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan Association ATM & Debit cards.  Please watch your mail for more information.  **

Q.  Will my account numbers change? 

A.  Your account numbers will not change.

Q.  Can I continue to use my Passbook?

A.  Yes.  Your current passbook will work without interruption.  However, please bring in your passbook to be updated prior to the merge. 

Q.  Will the merger affect my existing loan account? 

A.  No.  This merger will not affect any existing loan accounts.

Q.  Will I continue to make loan payments at the same address? 

A.  No.  If mailing payments, please mail September 2017’s payment to Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan Association, 23 Wallkill Ave., PO Box 290 Wallkill, NY 12589.  Alternatively, for your convenience, you may also visit any of our eight branch locations.  **
