Safe Deposit Boxes

A Safe Deposit Box is a great way to protect your documents and valuables against theft, fire or loss. Many documents and valuables are not replaceable, and even when replacement is possible, the annoyance, incovenience and expense can be considerable. The cost of a Safe Deposit Box is small in comparison.

Safe Deposit Box Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have access to my Safe Deposit Box whenever I wish?

Yes, you can have access to your box anytime and as many times as necessary during our regular business hours.

Will I have complete privacy?

The Farmers State Bank offers a separate room for privacy. You can use this room for as long as you need with your safe deposit box. When you leave the room, the attendant will check to insure no valuables have been left behind.

Can anyone else gain access to my Safe Deposit Box?

No one else can gain access to your safe deposit box without your written authorization. Anyone you authorize would also have to record his or her signature for positive identification.

What happens if I lose my keys?

If only one of the keys is lost, a $15.00 replacement fee is accessed. Please be aware that if both keys are lost, a substantial fee is charged for drilling open the box. The importance of keeping track of the safe deposit keys cannot be stress enough. Anyone finding your safe deposit keys would not be able to enter the box since his/her signature would not correspond to the signature on record.

Are the contents in a Safe Deposit Box insured?

The contents of your Safe Deposit Box are not insured against loss by the Farmers State Bank of Waupaca. For your own protection you may wish to obtain your own box content insurance from an insurance company of your choice. You should also keep a complete, up-to-date list and description of all property stored in your Safe Deposit Box. This inventory and any other proof of ownership documents should be stored in another location, other than your Safe Deposit Box.

What is the procedure to open a Safe Deposit Box?

It is simple. All you need to do is provide adequate identifying information and sign a rental agreement. You are then assigned a box and given two keys. Each time you wish to enter your box, you will sign a card. Your signature is then compared to the signature on record for positive identification. Then you have access to your box.
