How do I open a checking account?
Opening a checking account is simple! You can either visit your local Newtown Savings Bank branch or open an account online.

What do I need to open a checking account?
If you are a current customer, all  you need is a driver's license or state ID and your social security number. For new customers, you will need to bring two forms of ID, a valid primary ID (driver's license, passport, or state ID) and a secondary (non-picture) ID as well as your social security number. For minors under 18, if they do not have a primary ID we will accept two secondary IDs. 

How much does it cost to open a checking account?
Checking accounts require a $25 minimum deposit to open. Some accounts also have a monthly maintenance fee. You can compare checking accounts to learn more about checking account types, features and maintenance fees. 

How do I make deposits?
All deposits can be completed in branch, at a Newtown Savings Bank ATM, or after hours using the night drop. Checks can be deposited using mobile deposit through the NSB app (limits may apply). You can also set up direct deposit with most employers allowing for a faster process while eliminating the use of paper checks. 
 
If this is your first time doing a mobile deposit, the first step is to enroll. Once approved, select 'Deposit' from your dashboard. Enter the amount, select the account (if enrolled with more than one account), the app will require access to your camera in order to take a picture of the front and back of your check. Tap 'Continue' and you are all set!

What happens if my debit card is lost or stolen?
If you've misplaced your card, you can temporarily disable the card using the toggle switch in your On line & Mobile Banking app. You can switch the toggle back to Active once the card is found. If you can't find your card or if you believe your card was stolen, contact our team at Newtown Savings Bank to report your card as lost or stolen. We will deactivate your missing card and send you a new debit card with a new number.  More information here.

Can I use my Newtown Savings Bank checking account while traveling?
Traveling won't stop you from getting the benefits of using your account! If you're traveling and plan on using your debit card, you can set up a travel notice for your account. You can either call the bank or set the notice up yourself online. If you're using Online & Mobile Banking, head to the dashboard, click on Settings, and then select Travel Notices. Select Add Travel Notice and enter your destination and dates you'll be traveling.* Cards may only have one Travel Notification at a time. If you're traveling to several destinations in one trip, you can enter them all in one travel notification.
