Insurance Coverage


As a Pittsfield Cooperative Customer, rest easy knowing your funds are 100% insured. As a customer of a Massachusetts Co-operative Bank, your deposits are insured in full. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insures each depositor to at least $250,000. The Share Insurance Fund (SIF) of the Co-operative Central Bank insures all deposit balances in excess of the FDIC insured levels.

Up to $250,000 Insured by FDIC

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the federal government. It preserves and promotes public confidence in the U.S. financial system by insuring deposits in banks and thrift institutions for at least $250,000 by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to the deposit insurance funds and by limiting the effect on the economy and the financial system when a bank or thrift institution fails. Savings, checking and other deposit accounts, when combined, are generally insured to $250,000 per depositor in each bank or thrift the FDIC insures.

Balances over $250,000 by SIF

The Share Insurance Fund (SIF) is a private fund owned by the member banks, which insures all deposits at cooperative banks in Massachusetts above the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) limits. Since its inception, the Share Insurance Fund has preserved the enviable claim that "no depositor has ever lost a dollar in any Massachusetts Co-operative Bank."

This unique combined insurance coverage afforded by the FDIC and SIF provides the best deposit insurance available, whether a deposit balance are held in a passbook, statement of certificate type accounts, or in any combinations of these accounts. At a Massachusetts Co-operative Bank, your deposits are always fully protected.
