Debit Cards


All of our checking accounts qualify for debit cards, which may be used fee-free at any of The Bank of Bennington ATMs and, for a small charge, at ATMs across the state or the country. You will never be too far from your cash.

If you lose a debit card, it is imperative that you report the loss as soon as you are able—just as you would with a credit card—in order to protect your account from unauthorized activity.

Report Lost or Stolen ATM and Debit Cards immediately by calling 802-442-8121 during regular business hours or 1-800-554-8969 after hours, weekends, and holidays.
