Key Resources

As a precaution for the health and safety of our team and customers, our branch lobbies will be open by appointment only beginning Monday, January 11.

As we temporarily pause walk-in service, please remember that our team is still here for you. You may call for an appointment; our drive-ins, ATMs and night drops will remain fully available; and you can access our digital services anytime, 24/7. Thank you for understanding.

Payments by direct deposit have started. Please check your account online for your balance. Keep in mind that paper checks or debit cards will likely take longer.

Individuals who made up $75,000 in 2019 should receive $600; married couples who made up to $150,000 should receive $1,200. Families will receive an additional $600 for each dependent under age 18 in the household.

Please visit the IRS website for your payment status and to verify the account information and address you have on file with the IRS. If you do not file taxes, you can still enter your payment information on that website.

If you receive an Economic Impact Payment Card (EIP Card), learn more here.

The recently signed $900 billion stimulus package includes another $284 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Please check back here for updates or visit our PPP Loans page.

Unfortunately, events such as the global pandemic create opportunities for cyber criminals. More than 264,000 reports of coronavirus-related fraud have been reported from January through early December, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Here are some best practices to protect yourself:

  • Do not give out your personal information, including banking information or Social Security number to anyone you do not know
  • Watch for fake websites and go directly to trusted urls instead of using links from social media or other places
  • Watch for spoofed emails meant to look like official organizations such as the CDC or World Health Organization, but which actually contain malware
  • Use only trusted sources for information about the virus, such as legitimate government sites we have listed below in our FAQ section
  • Use caution with all links and attachments; hover over links before clicking to see where they go

We are closely monitoring the developments, and we continue to take a long-term view of your investment strategy and timeline. Learn more on our Investment Update page.

Here are answers to some common questions:

I’m applying for a home loan. What will change for me? 

We are adapting some logistics for the health and well-being of all involved. For mortgages and home equity loans, we are making every effort to perform exterior-only home inspections and limit interior inspections on a case-by-case basis. As we approach closing, we are limiting the number of individuals attending. When possible, we are encouraging people to pre-sign documents, or, in the case of home equity, mail notarized documents in advance of closing. For mortgage questions, please contact your mortgage originator. For home equity, please contact the bank branch managing your loan.

Is my money safe? 

Yes, your money is always safe and secure. Plus, Saratoga National Bank is a Member FDIC, which means our deposit products are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. The standard insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank for each ownership category. That means your deposit accounts are safe with us. Learn more about how our FDIC deposit insurance protects you.
