How were my Social Security deposits paid out during transition weekend?

If your regularly scheduled payment date fell on a Saturday, Sunday or legal public holiday, benefits were paid the business day before your due date.

Has my Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) coverage been affected?
  • Accounts you opened at People’s United prior to the merger with M&T Bank will continue to be insured by the FDIC
  • If you had deposit accounts with both M&T Bank and the People’s United division of M&T Bank prior to the merger, the FDIC will separately insure those deposit accounts for six months after the merger (on April 2, 2022)
  • Any M&T Bank deposit account you had prior to the merger and new deposit accounts established after the merger, including those opened with the People’s United division of M&T Bank, will not be separately insured. They will be combined to determine applicable FDIC insurance limits. This is because the People’s United division of M&T Bank and M&T Bank are now the same FDIC-insured institution
  • After six months, your former People’s United Bank deposits and your M&T Bank deposits will be combined for purposes of determining your appropriate level of FDIC deposit insurance coverage

Special Information for Certificates of Deposit (CDs):

  • Any CD you have at People’s United Bank, N.A. prior to the merger (on April 2, 2022) is separately insured until its next maturity date after the six-month period following the merger
  • If your former People’s United Bank CD automatically renews within six months of the merger, it will continue to be separately insured until its next maturity date The six-month transition period gives you the opportunity to consider how to maximize FDIC deposit insurance coverage for your accounts.

For additional information on FDIC insurance, visit the FDIC website at www.fdic.gov

Yes, you'll be able to use QuickBooks® Online with your M&T account. Conversion steps can be found at www3.mtb.com/quickbooksconversion.

M&T doesn't offer file formats that support Web Connect (.QFX/.QBO) at this time. You do have the ability to convert to M&T Direct Connect at no extra charge. Direct Connect provides you with the same interface and allows for automatic updates (no manual updates) of financial data and access to Bill Pay and transfers. You should not experience any impact to your data through the transition.

What is the difference between Direct Connect, Web Connect and Express Web Connect?

1) Direct Connect: QuickBooks® & Desktop Quicken®

Direct Connect is one of two automatic update options that communicates through a direct link with M&T. You do not need to log in directly to M&T Online Banking site to use this connectivity type. Once connected, updates will occur when you initiate a new download request from within the product. Direct Connect is the only two-way communication connectivity type, so additional services such as Bill Pay, and in-product transfers are supported.

Direct Connect is supported by M&T Bank.

2) Web Connect: QuickBooks®Desktop, QuickBooks®Online &Quicken®

Web Connect is the connectivity type that begins in M&T Online Banking site. You can download a .qbo (QuickBooks®) or .qfx (Quicken®) file and import that file into QuickBooks® or Quicken®. This process does not require credentials to be entered in Quicken® or QuickBooks® since the file download occurs within M&T Online Banking.

The file formats described are currently not available for download through M&T Online Banking. If you used Web Connect at People's United, you can convert to Direct Connect as an alternative.

3) Express Web Connect: QuickBooks®Online, Quicken®& Mint

Express Web Connect is the second of two automatic update options. Unlike Direct Connect which communicates through a direct link with M&T, Express Web Connect gathers your data through your log-in credentials to retrieve transactions from M&T Online Banking.

Express Web Connect is an option for you, but M&T Bank does not offer customer support for QuickBooks®Online. We ask that you reach out to Intuit for any questions/issues.

Please follow the instructions onIntuit's Quicken® Support page to refresh the Financial Institutions Directory.

Yes, your new M&T accounts will be available through mint.com.

Mint.com data is stored on Intuit cloud servers. Data is updated every time you log in and can't be restored to a previous point in time.
