Let Us Help Answer Your Questions
Our goal is to make the transition to BancorpSouth as smooth as possible and keep you informed along the way. As with any change, there are questions to be answered. How does this affect me? When will my accounts change? Is my branch closing?
We have included many of these answers in our Frequently Asked Questions. However, we understand that you might still have questions. We are here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact your local branch.
What does conversion mean and why is it occurring?
FSB has joined the BancorpSouth family. Conversion refers to the necessary changes to our banking systems to ensure that your account information is integrated into the BancorpSouth system.
How does this conversion affect me?
BancorpSouth is in the process of converting FSB accounts to our system. By now, you should have received communications giving you details of that conversion, how it will affect your particular accounts, and if any action is needed. You will now have access to a broader range of financial services and more branch locations that can help make banking easier.
Will FSB change its name to BancorpSouth?
Yes. All locations will be referred to as BancorpSouth Bank. The official name change is expected to occur at the close of business on June 8, 2018. Signage and documents will begin to reflect the change at that time.
Who will I contact if I need assistance with my finances during the conversion of FSB to BancorpSouth and after the conversion is complete?
Before June 9, 2018, continue to use your FSB banking team. Once the conversion is complete, you will also have access to BancorpSouth Customer Service at 1-888-797-7711 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, or visit us at BancorpSouth.com. You may also stop by any of our locations during regular business hours.
Deposit Account Information
Will there be changes to my product type?
There may be. You should have received a communication as to how your account will change, if at all. If the communication stated there will be changes, your account will automatically be updated to a BancorpSouth account that has features similar to what you have now. If you have not received a communication in the mail, please contact your local FSB banking team, and they will assist you.
What if I want a different product type for my account?
After reviewing your new product and services information, should you feel a different product would better suit your needs, stop by one of our branches starting June 11, 2018, and we will do our best to accommodate you with the product you prefer.
Will my routing number change? If so, when?
Yes. Your new BancorpSouth routing number is 084201278 and should be used moving forward. Your current routing number will continue to work for existing automatic payments, direct deposits, etc.
When should I begin using my new BancorpSouth ATM/Debit Card?
You may begin to use your new BancorpSouth ATM/Debit Card on June 11, 2018. Your Personal Identification Number (PIN) has not changed. Use the same PIN that you used with your FSB ATM/Debit Card.
Will my deposit accounts continue to be insured by the FDIC?
Yes. Your deposit accounts will continue to be insured by the FDIC. The standard FDIC insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each ownership category. During the first six months after merger your transferred deposits will be separately insured from any accounts you may already have had at BancorpSouth. This period allows you to evaluate your account structure and maximize FDIC insurance coverage.
Will I still have overdraft protection on my personal account?
If you currently have overdraft protection that is tied to a line of credit, it will be converted to BancorpSouth and will remain active. If applicable, you will receive a letter regarding any potential change in terms concerning the specific amount that the overdraft protection will advance.
If your overdraft protection is tied to a savings or checking account, it will convert over to BancorpSouth and will also remain active.
Should I continue to use my current checks and deposit slips from FSB?
If there is NO change to your account number, you may continue using your existing checks and deposit slips until they are gone. When it is time to reorder your checks, you may do so at BancorpSouth.com or your local branch.
If you received notice that your account number will change,
you will receive complimentary new checks with your new BancorpSouth account number and should begin to use those on or after June 11, 2018. For future orders, you will need to reorder checks with your new BancorpSouth account number.
How will checks that I have written from my FSB account prior to conversion be handled? Will they be honored after conversion?
Checks that are in circulation prior to the system conversion should post to your account without a problem.
Will I continue to receive images of my checks with my statements?
Depending on the type of account you had with FSB, you may continue to receive images of your checks with your BancorpSouth statements. Please refer to the BancorpSouth Account Information Statement that was mailed to you with your account conversion information for details.
I currently receive an eStatement notification; will I continue to receive an eStatement notification?

Accounts converted to E-Business Checking or Business Interest Checking will receive 90 days of waived monthly service charges.
