Question: What happens to my K Bank account?

Answer: All K Bank deposit accounts, including checking, savings, certificates of deposits and retirement accounts, have been transferred to M&T. No one lost any money on deposit in K Bank.

Question: Can I still use my ATM or debit card and bill-paying?

Answer: Your cards and bill-paying will continue to work as usual.

Question: What happens to my loan with K Bank?

Answer: M&T has assumed all of K Bank's loans. Your payment amount and due date do not change. Any payments usually deducted from your account will continue. Make checks payable to K Bank, and mail payments to the same address.

Question: My loan was still being processed. Now what?

Answer: Contact your loan officer directly.

Question: Will direct deposits change?

Answer: Direct deposits, including Social Security checks, will continue.

Question: Can I get the contents of my safe-deposit box?

Answer: Yes. It's business as usual.

Question: Will I continue to earn interest at the same rate?

Answer: Any interest on deposits accrued through Nov. 5 will be paid at the same rate. M&T will review rates and notify you of any changes.

Question: I'm already an M&T customer, and now my deposits there will exceed $250,000. Am I no longer fully insured?

Answer: If you have accounts in both K Bank and M&T, they will be insured separately for at least six months after the merger. This will allow you time to restructure your accounts if necessary.
