Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I’m being targeted by a scam? Or if I have been scammed?

Use the checklist below to determine if you may be vulnerable to fraud. If you answer "yes" to any of the questions, consider investigating further:

  • Do you question whether an online transaction may be fraudulent?
  • Is someone trying to give you money you weren't expecting?
  • Do you wonder if the currency you receive is real or counterfeit?
  • Have you been asked to cash a check and wire funds back to the sender?

How do I protect my balances? How does FDIC coverage work?

The FDIC—short for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation—is an independent agency of the United States government. The FDIC protects depositors of insured banks located in the United States, including NSB, against the loss of their deposits if an insured bank fails. FDIC insurance covers depositors' accounts at each insured bank, dollar-for-dollar, including principal and any accrued interest through the date of the insured bank's closing, up to the insurance limit. Learn more at fdic.gov.

What are collected funds?

Collected Funds are cash deposits or checks that have been presented for payment and for which payment has been received. Contrast this to uncollected funds, which is a portion of a deposit balance that has not yet been collected by the depository bank.

Do you offer government banking services?

Yes, we are committed to supporting local government and institutional entities by offering various financing options to cover operational costs, including tax anticipation notes, capital expense loans and lines of credit.
