Astoria Bank is becoming Sterling National Bank.

As you may have heard, we announced a few months ago that Astoria Financial Corporation has agreed to merge with Sterling Bancorp, uniting two complementary organizations who share a similar passion for helping our clients succeed. This merger is expected to be completed in the next few weeks. We’re excited about the new opportunities now at hand – for you, your family, and your future.

Once the merger takes place, the Astoria Bank name will change to Sterling National Bank. You’ll see our new name at your local financial center and when you do your online and mobile banking. Rest assured, our merger won’t disrupt your banking services. You will keep the same accounts, account numbers, checks and cards. It’s business as usual as we usher in a new era of possibilities.

We invite you to explore this page to learn more. We thank you for your business and look forward to creating new ways to serve you better as Astoria and Sterling unite.

Expect Extraordinary.
