To Our Valued Clients,
Kearny Bank continues to monitor the rapidly changing circumstances related to the Coronavirus. The Bank is taking precautions and making necessary adjustments in everyday operations and interactions, to safeguard both clients and employees during this time.
Out of an abundance of caution, and to assist with social distancing efforts, Kearny Bank lobbies (with the exception of our Staten Island branch and Brooklyn branch located at 689 Fifth Avenue, which are operating on a modified schedule) will temporarily close effective Wednesday, March 18th. Branches with drive-ups and walk-ups will remain fully operational, along with our ATMs. Clients of branches that do not have drive-ups will be referred to the nearest branch location. You can view a full list of our branch and ATM locations here.
Clients who need to conduct a transaction that requires access to our lobby, such as accessing a safe deposit box or opening a new account, can request an appointment by contacting the branch or visit our online account opening platform.
The health, financial safety and security of our clients, our employees and their families, will always be of the utmost importance to us. Thank you for banking with us and for allowing us to continue to provide you with an exceptional client experience.
Anthony V. Bilotta, Jr.
Executive Vice President/Chief Banking Officer
