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 integration mean and why is it occurring?
A: Icon has joined the BancorpSouth family. Integration refers to the necessary changes to our banking systems to ensure that your account information is transferred into the BancorpSouth system.
How does this integration affect me?
A: BancorpSouth is in the process of transitioning Icon accounts to our system. By now, you should have received communications giving you details of that integration, 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 Icon change its name to BancorpSouth?
A: Yes. All locations will be referred to as BancorpSouth. The official name change is expected to occur at the close of business on November 30, 2018. Signage and documents will begin to reflect the change at that time.
Who will I contact if I need assistance during or after the integration?
A: Before December 1, 2018, continue to use your Icon banking team. Once the integration 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?
A: 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 Icon banking team, and they will assist you.
What if I want a different product type for my account?
A: 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 December 3, 2018, and we will do our best to accommodate you with the product you prefer.
Will my deposit accounts continue to be insured by the FDIC?
A: 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?
A: If you have overdraft protection that is tied to a savings account, it will transition to BancorpSouth and will remain active.
Will my routing number change? If so, when?
A: Yes. At integration, the routing number will change to 084201278. Please do not make any changes at this time. We’ve taken the steps necessary to ensure your current routing number (and current checks) will continue to work for existing payments and direct deposits such as payroll or Social Security, etc. Begin using this new routing number after December 3 when re-ordering checks or establishing new automatic payments.
Will I receive a new debit card, or can I use my existing debit card?
A: You will receive a new BancorpSouth debit card in the mail prior to conversion. You may begin to use your new BancorpSouth debit card on December 3, 2018. At that time, your Icon debit card will be deactivated; please destroy it. Your Personal Identification Number (PIN) has not changed. Use the same PIN that you used with your Icon debit card.
If you haven’t received your BancorpSouth debit card by November 26, 2018, please contact your local branch.
Will the daily limit on my debit card for ATM and point-of-sale transactions change?
A: With your BancorpSouth debit card, you may withdraw from ATMs up to a maximum of $400.00 (or your available balance if less than $400.00) per card per processing day, and use point-of-sale terminals to purchase goods or services up to a maximum of $10,000.00 (or your available balance if less than $10,000.00).
For additional terms and conditions, please review the BancorpSouth ATM Card and Mastercard Debit Card Disclosure included with your new card.
Should I continue to use my current checks and deposit slips?
A: 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.
A: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 December 3, 2018. For future orders, you will need to reorder checks with your new BancorpSouth account number.
I received a communication that I will have a new BancorpSouth account number. Do I need to update any automatic payments, direct deposits, etc. with my new account number?
A: Yes. If you received notice that your account number will change, soon AFTER December 3, 2018, you will need to update your account information on any automatic payments, direct deposits, etc. BancorpSouth will send you a set of complimentary new checks with the updated account and routing number that you should begin using on December 3, 2018. If you did not receive a notice, your account number is unchanged.
How will checks that I have written from my Icon account prior to conversion be handled? Will they be honored after conversion?
A: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?
A: Depending on the type of account you had with Icon, 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?
A: For online statements arriving after December 2, 2018, you will receive an email notification from email@example.com when your statement is available.
When will I receive my last Icon account statement?
