BUZZ is your telephone connection to your accounts at the First National Bank of Groton, giving you immediate access to the information that you need most often.

With BUZZ you can quickly and easily:

  • Inquire about account balances
  • Determine the transactions since your last statement
  • Verify social security deposits as well as other electronic funds or ATM transfers
  • Make transfers and loan payments

The First Time You Use BUZZ

To access information using BUZZ, you will need your account number(s) and your four to eight digit Personal Identification Number (PIN).

The first time you access your account(s) through BUZZ, you will be required to enter your social security number and zip code. You will then be prompted to create a new four to eight digit PIN.

It is very important that you create a PIN as soon as possible. You should be able to do this within two days of opening an account.

The PIN should be a number that you will remember. Please do not write it down where someone else could find it and use it. Do not share your PIN with anyone, as confidential information about your accounts could be gathered by an unauthorized individual.

If you feel that your PIN has been obtained by an unauthorized person, please contact the Bank immediately at 607-898-5871. We will assist you in correcting the situation.
