New Easy-to-read Account Statements

Later this month we will begin printing customers' account statements in a new, easier-to-read format.  You will have all the same information but it will be presented in bolder, more-defined areas that will make it much simpler to review.  These new statements will also allow Watertown Savings Bank to provide important up-to-date news and information about your account right alongside your account data.  We think you will enjoy the change.

Paper statements and e-statements will look exactly the same.  Reminder: WSB online banking customers can receive all their WSB account information by e-statement instead of the U.S. Mail.  It's safer and faster and it's free.  Simply click the "eStatement" tab within WSB Online choose which accounts you want to change to eStatements and follow the instructions to confirm the process.  If you need assistance give our Customer Support staff a call at 617-928-9000.

Did you know that August is Happiness Happens Month? Club 50 is happy when we’re traveling – and, coincidentally, this month we are doubly so, with Saratoga August 16-18 and the North Shore Music Theatre’s Singin’ in the Rain August 21 (coincidentally, on National Senior Citizens Day!).

We’re also happy to keep the day and overnight trips coming! We’re “bookending” our August trips with more trip signups: Don’t forget about our first-day sign up Thursday, August 11, for Essex Steam & Riverboat Saturday, September 10, which we announced last month. That should be a very popular trip to Connecticut!
