  • Before Wednesday, July 17th, we recommend downloading or recording your account history, statements, recurring transfer schedules, Individual Retirement Account distribution information, peer-to-peer payments, payees,  and bill payment details as some of these items may not transfer over during the conversion. To request paper copies of your historical Berkshire Bank statements for current or closed accounts, you will need to contact Berkshire Bank directly.

  • On Monday, July 22nd, you can access your accounts through pathfinderbank.com by logging into online banking. Simply click the “Online Banking” link in the upper right corner and select the “Personal” drop-down option, and follow the first time login instructions available online at pathfinderbank.com/welcome.  You may resume using Bill Pay services in Pathfinder Bank Online Banking. We recommend verifying your bill payment information to ensure its accuracy.

Accounts and Account Numbers

  • Your Berkshire Bank accounts will automatically be converted to the Pathfinder Bank account that most closely resembles your existing account. Please see the conversion chart below. 

  • In most cases, your account numbers will remain the same during and after the transition to Pathfinder Bank. If your current Berkshire Bank account number has 10 digits, it will stay the same. If it has fewer than 10 digits, zeros will be added to the beginning to make it 10 digits. For example, account number 12345678 will become 0012345678.

  • In the rare case of a duplicate number, a new account number will be assigned to you. You will be notified of any changes before July 19th, 2024. 

  • For Certificates of Deposits (CDs) your maturity dates and current rates will be carried over for the remainder of their term. Upon maturity, your Berkshire Bank CD will automatically roll into the current rate of the product it was converted into, and renewal notices will be sent to you. These notices will provide detailed information about any new rate and/or term adjustments. If your current CD is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), it will be linked to a Pathfinder Bank IRA plan.

  • If applicable, you will receive an amendment in the mail with details on your new IRA plan. This amendment does not affect the maturity date or terms of any of your IRA accounts and will not change the beneficiary designation on file. 

  • Account History: Your Berkshire Bank transaction history and documents will not be available in Pathfinder Bank Online Banking. Starting July 22nd, 2024 we will begin retaining transaction history for your new Pathfinder Bank products.

  • Your Pathfinder Bank routing number is 221370894.

Loans

  • Rest assured, there will be no changes to any terms or conditions of your Berkshire Bank loans other than the terms directly related to the servicing of the loan. Your interest rate, outstanding principal balance, and other loan terms will remain unchanged.

  • You will soon receive a separately mailed servicing transfer notice outlining these changes including payment instructions and your new Pathfinder Bank loan account number.

  • Your statements will look different but will contain the same information you’re accustomed to.

During conversion weekend, all Berkshire Bank checking, savings and money market accounts will be matched with a similar account offered by Pathfinder Bank. The chart and links below, along with the corresponding product summary information and Truth In Savings Act (TISA) in the Account Disclosures booklet, serves as our Notice of Change In Terms, provided in advance to all account holders.
