We routinely clean all of our facilities and are disinfecting common surfaces every evening as part of our regular cleaning. Virtually all of our corporate staff are working remotely, leveraging our investments in cloud-based technology and our wider geographic footprint.
We have also distributed face masks, gloves, and additional sanitizer to all of our staff and installed plexiglass dividers in lobby spaces. Consistent with guidance from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we now require that all individuals that visit our lobby offices wear a face mask.
In light of the current guidance on "social distancing" as the key strategy to slowing the impact of COVID-19, we strongly encourage our customers to consider the following:
First, we strongly encourage customers to explore our digital services outlined below. In particular, our remote deposit capture options (Personal and Business, Mobile and Desktop) eliminate the need to visit our offices to deposit checks.
Second, we strongly encourage customers to contact us by phone directly or at 781-749-2200 in the event you have informational inquiries. Please consider whether your business requires an in-person visit if you are not making deposits or withdrawing funds.
Opening New Accounts: Both new and existing personal customers can open new accounts digitally, including savings, money market, certificates of deposits, and checking accounts. Businesses may also contact our branches or our Specialized Deposit Group and we can handle all of your needs in-person or remotely as you prefer.
Access Accounts: Access your account information, handle payments and make deposits using our Personal Online Banking and Business Online Banking or via our Personal and Business Mobile Banking Apps.
Handle Payments: Using our free business and mobile applications, personal customers can pay bills (including sending checks) and move money to and from their accounts at other banks. In addition to these tools, business customers also have the ability to initiate wire transfers free of charge using business online banking and receive real-time e-mail notifications when wires are sent and received. To learn more and enroll contact us.
Make Deposits: Both Personal and Business customers are pre-enrolled in our free mobile check deposit service with the ability to make deposits up to $25,000 through our mobile apps. If you need a higher limit or have a large volume of checks you need to deposit, please contact us at 781-749-2200 or at [email protected].
Contactless Payments: Avoid using cash by using your Hingham Mastercard Debit Card. If you have an iPhone, you can also add your debit card to the ApplePay digital wallet on your iPhone or Apple watch.
