We're pleased to welcome Berkshire Bank's East Syracuse customers and team members!  

Pathfinder Bank is excited to announce the acquisition of Berkshire Bank’s East Syracuse branch! At this time, it is business as usual -- you will not notice any changes in your day-to-day banking activities. The familiar faces in the East Syracuse office will not change either. While some things like the bank name and logo will change, you will continue to receive the same personalized attention and trusted financial advice that you have always enjoyed. 

July 19th, 2024, Berkshire Bank's East Syracuse location will be converting over to Pathfinder Bank. To help with the transition, we have created a booklet that outlines all the information you need. This booklet has already been mailed to you for your convenience, but you can also find it 
here. All expected changes and requested actions will be available here for your reference. We will continue to do all we can and make ourselves available to minimize interruptions and make this transition simple for all our customers.

Monday, July 22nd, 2024: the East Syracuse location will open as Pathfinder Bank.

Please continue to check back often, as we will be updating these pages with new information as it becomes available.
