Account Conditions: To earn the rebate of ATM fees, you must have e-Statement, Online Banking, and 5 Debit Card transactions posted per month (excluding ATM transactions) and a Bright Future Savings Account. Failure to meet any one of these requirements during a calendar month will cause ATM fees surcharged by other financial institutions to not be rebated. This offer can be withdrawn at any time.

Charter Oak also gives back to the community by promoting financial education and awareness. Our two high school branches (located at Killingly High School in Dayville and Robert E.
