Client Checking Update

We are getting a lot of questions from our checking account clients asking whether they will need to order new checks due to our upcoming merger with Monona State Bank on June 12th.

We are happy to let you know that the answer is NO. All checking account clients (consumer and business) will continue to be able to use their existing supply of checks until they need to reorder them.

The routing number for our checking account will change after June 12th but no action is required on your part. Your existing checks will be rerouted to the new routing number automatically.

If you have any questions, please contact your personal banker.





Middleton Community Bank Receives Five-Star "Superior" Rating from Bauer Financial for 2016

In 2016, Bauer Financial Inc., of Coral Gables, Florida, awarded its five-star "superior" bank rating to Middleton Community Bank for the sixth consecutive year! A five-star rating is the highest rating given by Bauer Financial, and indicates that Middleton Community Bank, along with its four branch locations, is one of the safest financial institutions in our markets.

This rating level ensures you that Middleton Community Bank and its branches has surpassed our competitors for capital, asset quality, and profitability, and will remain the strong and dependable bank our customers deserve.

Bauer Financial has been reporting on and analyzing the performance of banks and credit unions since 1983. They are an independent rating agency, and no bank pays the firm to rate it, nor can any institution choose to be excluded.

New Fraud Prevention Service (effective 6/8/2016)

In our continuing efforts to keep your accounts secure, we've improved our alert system for potential fraud.

Here's how it works:

1.    When potential fraud is detected, you will receive an automatic email notification from Middleton Community Bank, with the option to reply with "fraud" or "no fraud."

2.    One minute after the email, you will receive a text alert from 32874 between 7am and 9pm, which also has the "fraud" or "no fraud" option. (*SEE BELOW)

3.    If there is no response received from you, five minutes after the text alert, you will receive automatic phone calls to confirm or deny fraud.

Remember - our messages will never ask for your PIN or account number.

*The phone number for our Fraud Center has changed to 1-800-417-4592. If you add this number to your phone contacts and label it "Fraud Center," it will display whenever you get a call from this number.
