Local banks and credit unions are experiencing an increase in fraudulent activity. Some of their customers are receiving phony text messages and telephone calls claiming to be from their bank. Caller identification even appears as though it is from their institution’s phone number. Please note that the Bank of Millbrook will never ask for your personal or account information via a text message, telephone call, or email. Please contact us immediately at (845) 677-5321 if you are ever in doubt about a text message, telephone phone call, or email claiming to be from the Bank of Millbrook.


The bank will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th in observance of Juneteenth. Our telephone and online banking, including mobile deposits, will be available.

Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS)

CDARS allows us the ability to offer you FDIC insurance in excess of $250,000.

Here’s how:

The standard FDIC insurance maximum is $250,000 for each deposit insurance ownership category, per bank. You can receive the same coverage through a single relationship using CDARS. When you place your large-dollar deposit with Bank of Millbrook, a member of the CDARS Network, your deposit is divided into smaller amounts and placed with other CDARS Network members – each an FDIC-insured institution. Then, those member institutions issue CDs in amounts under $250,000, so that your deposit is eligible for FDIC insurance at each member bank. By working directly with one Network member, you can receive insurance through many. And, it’s easy … One Relationship, One Rate, One Statement

One Relationship – You work directly with your Branch Manager at Bank of Millbrook

One Rate – We offer you one interest rate per maturity on CD investments placed through CDARS. There is no need to negotiate multiple rates per maturity or tally disbursements manually for each CD.

One Statement – There is no need to manually consolidate statements. You receive one easy-to-read statement detailing all of your CD holdings.
