Due to the recent occurrence of fraud, the state of Washington has been added to the list of restricted states for signature-based and “card not present” (CNP) ATM/Debit Card transactions. PIN-based transactions are not restricted at this time.
For your reference, the complete list of states currently restricted for signature-based ATM/Debit Card transactions (not PIN-based transactions) includes:
Washington, New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and California (both signature-based and PIN-based transactions are restricted in California). We will continue to monitor fraud activity and will make updates as necessary.
Internationally, all countries – with the exception of Canada and Mexico – are currently restricted for signature-based and PIN-based transactions.
If you have any questions or are planning to travel to any of the restricted states or countries, please contact our Customer Service staff at 888-322-1088 and we may be able to temporarily accommodate your needs. Thank you for understanding that this measure is for your security and protection.
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that promotes the partnership between banks and schools by teaching and helping young people develop lifelong savings habits. The 2013 annual awareness day, Teach Children to Save Day, is Tuesday, April 23rd.
County National Bank is again participating in this important effort. Last year our bankers visited about 40 classrooms and presented to over 900 elementary students. Our bankers read grade-level appropriate books, like Bunny Money, Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday, and Rock, Brock, and the Savings Shock, and they also prepare interactive activities and lessons on the topic of savings. Activity books and goodies are left for the teacher to distribute.
Bankers are experts at money management, so it’s a natural fit for us to be involved in financial education efforts. We have scheduled classroom visits throughout the month of April, and we’re excited to be a part of Teach Children to Save!
We are very proud to have been nominated for the award and especially proud to have won in the “Best Bank” category. We appreciate the recognition and the opportunity to serve our great customers. We are committed to the being the best community bank we can be!
County National Bank recently received an award from the Salvation Army of Hillsdale County for collecting the most money in a countertop kettle for the organization’s 2012 kettle drive. The kettle was one of several placed in the bank’s lobby during the holiday season and, through the generosity of our customers and staff, it collected $1031.80. CNB is proud to support the efforts of the Salvation Army.
Although it wasn’t award-winning and the competition was fierce, the CNB chili was awesome! Thank you to Maria, Sonya, Ida, Cathy, Wilma, and Allison for all of their hard work – they are all award-winning stars!

The Transaction Account Guarantee (TAG) program that became effective at the end of 2008 expired on December 31, 2012. TAG ensured that all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts were fully guaranteed by the FDIC for the entire amount in the account (unlimited coverage). Coverage under TAG was in addition to and separate from the coverage available under the FDIC’s general deposit insurance rules.
As of 1/1/13, noninterest-bearing transaction accounts will no longer have unlimited deposit insurance coverage, but will revert to standard coverage.
If you have a large-dollar account that exceeds the FDIC coverage limit, you may qualify for an Insured Cash Sweep (ICS) account through County National Bank. For more information about ICS, click here, or call Melissa Stroede at 517-782-2500.
