Keeping you informed
Our goal is to keep you fully informed as BB&T and SunTrust move forward as Truist. In the coming months, you will receive additional information regarding how any changes will impact you. For now, please read the following information concerning your accounts.
As you are aware, Branch Banking and Trust Company (“BB&T”) merged with SunTrust Bank (“SunTrust”) and the combined bank is now known as Truist Bank (“Truist”). Although now Truist, your BB&T financial center will continue to operate under the BB&T name for some period of time until its operating systems convert to Truist systems.
Amendment to Documents
Effective on the date of the merger, any agreement, disclosure, form or instrument naming BB&T as a party, constitutes a valid and binding obligation with Truist even though the documents reference BB&T as the party in interest. The documents shall be read with Truist in place of BB&T.
The terms and conditions of any agreement, disclosure, form or instrument shall remain in effect unless modified or amended in accordance with any such provision contained therein.
Important notice regarding FDIC insurance

Any deposits you held separately at BB&T and SunTrust prior to the date of the merger will continue to be insured separately for a period of six months from the merger date. Any deposit made to an account you open on or after the date of the merger at BB&T is a Truist deposit for FDIC insurance purposes.

In addition, if you have a CD that is renewed for the same term and amount during this six-month transition period, the CD will continue to be insured separately until the next renewal date.
After the six-month transition period, your deposits at the former BB&T and the former SunTrust will be added together for the purpose of determining the amount of your FDIC coverage at Truist. Your total deposits at Truist that are in the same ownership rights and capacity will be insured up to $250,000. If you have more than $250,000 in total deposits at the combined banks, you may call the FDIC directly at 877-275-3342 for more information about how your funds may be insured at Truist.
