As a member of the NYCE and Cirrus networks, our ATM system is well connected. Perhaps even more important to you is our membership in the SUM ATM alliance. In a market where many of the big banks are imposing surcharges, customers of a SUM bank can use any of the more than 2500 SUM ATMs across the state without additional surcharges. Dedham Savings has also joined the AllPoint Network, which means Dedham Savings’ customers now have access to America’s largest surcharge-free retail ATM network, with over 55,000 surcharge-free retail ATMs worldwide. Check out our Branch and ATM Locator to find the locations closest to you!

Data compromise, also known as hacking, occurs when an individual or a group of individuals gain unauthorized access to a computer system for the purpose of corrupting or stealing data. When you use your card at a merchant such as a store, gas station, over the internet or on the phone, your debit card information such as card numbers, expiration dates, and names is recorded into a database that is retained by the merchant for a period of time. The unauthorized individuals may gain access to this information that is stored and may use it to perform fraudulent activity on your debit card.

The only information that is encoded on your debit card is your name, debit card number (which is not your Dedham Savings checking or savings account number) and the expiration date. Any accounts linked to your debit card are not revealed to a merchant when you make purchases, ATM withdrawals or point of sale transactions.

The bank has no control over where you use your card and how the merchants store your information. Each merchant must attempt to protect customer information by ensuring that your information is secure. The bank does protect our customers by reissuing new cards immediately when we are notified by MasterCard to reduce the chance of any fraudulent activity occurring on your account

The undisclosed merchant works with MasterCard in identifying customers that may have been compromised. We receive the list from MasterCard that identifies which card numbers were affected.

As a precaution, the bank wants to protect the customer information and at the same time limit the bank's liability in case of fraudulent activity. We lower the cash limits for cash advances and we reduce the MasterCard purchase limits. We do this so that the customer will be able to make purchases for small amounts until they get their new card in the mail. We may allow the customer full access to make ATM withdrawals and Point of Sale purchases (Pin required) depending upon the type of compromised list that we receive. We send out letters to customers as quickly as possible to notify them of our action.

There are many cardholders affected that it would be difficult to reach every Dedham Savings customer. Instead we focus our efforts on reissuing new cards and reducing existing purchase card limits.

We can make exceptions to raise limits temporarily on a case to case basis. Contact the Deposit Support Department at 781-329-6700 for assistance.

It usually takes 7-10 business days to receive a new card. You will receive a pin reminder first in the mail and shortly thereafter; you should receive the new card. The pin reminder will reveal your new pin number on it. If you would like to change your four digit PIN number, you may visit one of our branches to change your PIN. If you know your existing PIN, you may change it by visiting one of the Dedham Savings ATM’s or by calling the 24-hour Bankline Service at 1-888-252-0760.

You should use your current card until you receive the new one. You may also obtain an Instant Debit MasterCard by visiting any branch location.

Once the new card arrives, you should destroy the old compromised card. The bank will place a restriction on the card once we know our customers have received their new cards.

We never receive the names of the merchants involved. We receive a list indicating that an undisclosed merchant’s database was compromised. The merchant is protected because law enforcement ultimately investigates the case. Once the case is closed, the merchant may be revealed at a later date.

Text Banking gives you access to your accounts via text messaging on your phone. It's a fast and easy way to look up account balances or recent account history by sending a text command.

All text messages should be sent to short code 79680.

After you enroll your mobile device for Text Banking, a message from short code 79680 is sent to the enrolled mobile device. The text message instructs you to reply with the activation code given at the time of mobile phone enrollment. Once you reply with the correct activation code, you are able to send text commands to 79680 to perform banking activity. A list of text commands is available when you send “C” to 79680.

 

Below are the Text Banking commands:

 

 

Text commands are not case sensitive.

Text Banking is secure because no personal detailed information, including full account numbers, is sent.

Typically you should receive a text message within a few minutes after enrolling; however, sometimes wireless phone carriers experience delays which slow down text message delivery. While waiting, make sure your phone has a wireless signal. In addition, be sure you entered the correct phone number on the enrollment site. If you still do not receive it, try to enroll again. If the problem continues, contact your wireless phone carrier to be sure text messaging is enabled on your phone.

Activation codes expire after a specific period of time (usually 24 hours). If you need a new one, login to Your Link and request a new activation code through the Mobile Banking Center.
