What's new? We're now www.mct.bank!
We redesigned our website to make it easier to use and changed our website address from "mauchchunktrust.com" to "mct.bank" to provide you with enhanced online security. Learn more below:
Our new mct.bank address will help to prevent "phishing" attacks against our employees, customers and vendors by providing a visual identification cue for our emails and websites. Going forward, you should authenticate our staff emails and main bank website simply by looking for the “mct.bank” (rather than mauchchunktrust.com) at the end of our email addresses and our main website address.
The security of your assets and information continues to be our top priority. Since 1902, Mauch Chunk Trust Company has been a local leader and trusted bank that knows the needs of our communities and our customers, while ensuring you have the security you’d expect from a much bigger bank.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain, like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be purchased by anyone, mct.bank quickly verifies that the website or email is authentically from our bank, so you can interact with confidence when you see the ‘.BANK’ at the end of our website URL and email addresses.
How is .BANK more secure?
All banks are verified and authenticated by fTLD , the .BANK administrator, prior to registering their BANK domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK domain is an eligible organization. Hackers and bad actors can’t get a .BANK domain to create lookalike domains for phishing and spoofing, as they can in ‘.com’ and other publicly available domains.
With the mct.bank visual authentication cue in place you can quickly confirm emails and websites of ours are real and avoid interactions that could lead to identity theft and financial fraud. This authentication is also an additional layer of protection for internal and vendor communications, helping to secure against potential breaches.
All banks within the .BANK domain must also implement additional Security Requirements to help secure their sites and email, and protect them, their vendors and their customers from phishing, spoofing and other cyberattacks. All banks using .BANK are monitored for compliance with these security requirements on an ongoing basis.
Do I need to do anything differently now that you’re in .BANK?
Effective September 14, 2021, our staff’s email addresses and website URL will end in mct.bank instead of mauchchunktrust.com. From now on, before interacting with emails from us, and before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look for mct.bank to authenticate that the email address or website is ours.
Our staff's old mauchchunktrust.com email addresses will automatically forward to our new mct.bank email addresses, and our mauchchunktrust.com website will redirect to our new mct.bank website, but over time you should update your address book and browser bookmark/favorite for our website.
You’re the first ‘.BANK’ I’ve seen, why haven’t all the other banks moved?
The move to .BANK is a business decision every bank must make, and plan for, based on its priorities and resources. We decided it was a priority for MCT to enhance our security and provide our customers with an easy way to authenticate our email communications and website.
