Welcome Tamalpais Bank Customers

Tamalpais Bank is now part of Union Bank

On Friday, April 16, 2010, Union Bank acquired substantially all of the assets and deposits of Tamalpais Bank through a Purchase and Assumption Agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Since April, we have been working hard to prepare for a smooth conversion of your Tamalpais Bank accounts and services to Union Bank. The conversion of accounts and services will take place on January 24, 2011. At that time, your current Tamalpais Bank accounts and services will be changing to similar accounts and services at Union Bank.

The week of December 20, we mailed a letter to you that included important information regarding changes that will affect your account(s) and services. If you have more than one type of account with Tamalpais Bank (such as a loan, business account, or a Certificate of Deposit), you would have received more than one letter. If you did not receive the letter(s), please contact the branch where you typically conduct business.

The links below are to some of the items that were mailed to you, and they include helpful information that will provide you with an overview of what is changing and how you can prepare for the changes.

Online Banking Customers
If you use Online Banking at Tamalpais Bank, please refer to the Online Section of the Welcome Brochure(s) for important information regarding actions that you need to take to prepare for the conversion.

Please Use Your Account

The FDIC requires that Tamalpais Bank customers "claim" ownership of their deposit accounts. If you have not already done so, it is important that you use at least one of your accounts before October 17, 2011. This process is known as "claiming" and helps us know which accounts are active. To do so, simply use your ATM/debit card, write a check, make a deposit (electronic or in person), or use your online bill pay. If you have multiple accounts, you will need to claim only one account under your name. Inactive accounts must be turned over to the FDIC after October 17, 2011.
