* Brookline Bank belongs to the SUM program and is a member of the NYCE and Cirrus ATM networks. Click here to learn about surcharge-free SUM ATMs. ATMs that are not part of the SUM program may impose a surcharge for withdrawals. PREMIERACCESS Checking customers will have these fees refunded on each monthly statement.

** Combined balance is calculated by adding together: a.) the average daily balance of all your non-retirement savings, checking and money market accounts since their last statement date (or interest posting date, for passbook accounts); b.) the current balance of all your CDs and IRA accounts, as of your checking account's statement date; and c.) the current outstanding principal balance of all your home equity lines/loans, reserve credit, personal loans, and mortgages held by Brookline Bank, as of your checking account's statement date. Auto loans obtained through a car dealership are not combined.
