UPDATE: Tuesday, March 23, 2020
We continue to closely monitor the ever-changing situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to do our part in keeping our customers and employees safe.
In an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus, Governor Baker called for residents to stay home and for ‘essential services only’ to stay open. We want to reassure you that we are here for you and our drive-up window locations will remain open regular hours as banks are considered an ‘essential service’. You may also contact Customer Support at 617-928-9000 to discuss any of your banking needs.
We would also like to strongly suggest that whenever possible you use WSB Online on our homepage and the WSB Mobile Banking app on your smartphone. With these digital tools you’ll be able to access your accounts, make transfers, deposit checks, pay bills, and more—all from your home or virtually anywhere.
This is an unprecedented situation, but we are all in this together. Stay healthy and stay safe.
UPDATE: Wednesday, March 18, 2020
This is a brief note to express my thanks and gratitude to you.
Yesterday, virtually overnight, we had to reluctantly change the way we have interacted with you for the past 150 years. And yet, you showed us patience, understanding, and support during these unprecedented times. For that we are very grateful.
All drive-up services will remain open for bank transactions. If you use our drive-up services, you will notice that we are taking extra precautions—such as having our team wear protective gloves—to ensure your and our employees’ safety. While prudent, this makes certain transactions, like counting money, somewhat harder and some transactions may take longer. We appreciate your patience under these circumstances. Please see below a list of our drive-up locations.
We fully recognize that most, but not all, banking services can be conducted via the drive-up locations. We are working diligently to provide safe alternatives for these services. We invite you to contact Customer Support at 617-928-9000 to discuss any of your banking needs and determine how best to accommodate them.
Time and time again our communities have been challenged and have proven to be remarkably resilient. We will be so once again.
UPDATE: Monday, March 16, 2020
We are committed to maintaining the health and safety of our customers and employees. Together, we can take precautionary steps during this time of uncertainty.
Effective tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17th, WSB drive-up window services will continue to be open with regular business hours and branch lobbies will be temporarily closed.
Our drive-up window locations offer full banking services and can accommodate your banking needs and transactions.

A brief, personal note from your neighbors at Watertown Savings Bank,
There is an enormous amount of information regarding the Coronavirus. As your neighbor and as your Bank, I simply and directly want to assure you that we continue to do our part to ensure the health and safety of customers and employees and we remain committed to providing you with outstanding customer service.
As your neighbors, we are all on the same team. Today, there a few steps I would like to suggest on how we may best work together as that team. Particularly in the event in-person interactions were to become more limited, we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with Online and Mobile Banking, and our drive-up and ATM locations. To learn more about these options, please visit our additional resources.
1. Access your WSB Accounts Using WSB Digital Banking Tools
We have many free tools that create great alternatives to in-person banking, among them:
- WSB Online (log in/enroll on watertownsavings.com)
- WSB Mobile Banking app (download the app for your iPhone or Android phone and login/enroll on your smartphone)
They’re safe and secure and let you access your accounts, pay bills, deposit checks, set-up real-time alerts, transfer money, and more.
2. Take Advantage of our Drive-Up and ATM Locations
In order to best ensure your safety and the safety of our staff, for those of you visiting our branch locations, we ask that you give strong consideration to using our drive-up services for basic transactions. Please familiarize yourself with our drive-up locations and extended service hours, by visiting watertownsavings.com/locations or by contacting Customer Support at 617-928-9000
3. Connect with us on Social Media
4. Don’t connect with the Scam Artists
Sadly, situations like this create opportunities for even more scams than usual. Remember WSB will never request personal information or account information through social media or email. Similarly, this email contains no links. WSB will never send emails containing direct links to your WSB accounts or any WSB service.
We have been your neighbor for 150 years and we will be your neighbor for 150 more. We will work through these challenging times, perhaps sometimes imperfectly, but always as a team. This will help ensure that we maintain the standard of service that we hope and believe you have grown accustomed to over the years.
On behalf of all us at Watertown Savings Bank, thank you for all of your support and loyalty.
Brett W. Dean
President & CEO
