Privacy Notice

At Northfield Savings Bank, we are committed to your privacy

We have created a privacy policy that respects the needs of our customers, and meets the Federal privacy guidelines as well as the regulations of the State of Vermont. Our policy will continue to evolve as we respond to the changes in customer requirements and privacy regulation.

If you believe there is an error on your account, please review our Error Resolution Notice for information on having it addressed.

If you think your deposit account statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt, telephone us at 800-NSB-CASH, write us at Northfield Savings Bank, PO Box 7180, Barre, VT 05641-7180 or email us at as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  2. Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
  4. If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account.

For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within 3 business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. Rules apply to consumer accounts only.
