Watertown Savings Bank is proud to be a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF). This means that all WSB customers' deposits are insured in full. Regardless of the number of accounts or the total funds, Watertown Savings Bank's deposits are safe and secure. Enjoy an extra layer of security peace of mind knowing that all of your deposits are insured thanks to WSB's membership in DIF.
Not many banks qualify for DIF Insurance. In fact, many local banks recently acquired by larger banks are no longer eligible to offer DIF Insurance.
All types of bank deposit accounts are covered, including savings accounts, checking accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market deposit accounts, and retirement deposit accounts. The first $250,000 per depositor is insured by FDIC. All deposits above the FDIC insurance limits are insured by DIF.
