First Citizens National Bank & SDBIC Introduce Safe Deposit Box Insurance in Tennessee

Safe Deposit Box Insurance Coverage, LLC (SDBIC) entered into agreement with First Citizens National Bank, a full-service financial institution with more than 125 years of history and heritage in the state of Tennessee, to provide customers with the opportunity to insure the contents of their safe deposit boxes.

Through this partnership, First Citizens National Bank becomes the first bank in the state to offer this valuable coverage to its customers, which is the only insurance solution in the market that covers all legal property in a safe deposit box against burglary, robbery and other man-made catastrophes. The policy also protects against all natural disasters, including earthquakes. More information can be found at

“We strive to provide our customers with value added products and services to best manage and protect their financial assets and well-being,” said Judy Long, FirstCNB President & COO. “Partnering with SDBIC offers our customers an easy, convenient and affordable way to protect their most valuable assets. We are very excited to be the first financial institution in the state of Tennessee to roll out this beneficial program.”

Safe deposit boxes are the best option for storing valuables and universally recommended by federal, state and local law enforcement and relief agencies. Given the increased frequency and severity of natural disasters and other catastrophes, which no vault or box can protect against, it is widely recommended that box holders maintain some level of insurance coverage.

SDBIC’s unique, patented insurance solution is specifically designed to protect those possessions stored inside safe deposit boxes, without compromising confidentiality or privacy.

  • No disclosure of what is in the box;
  • No deductibles;
  • Box holder selects the desired amount of coverage, starting as low as $25 a year;
  • Property added to the box is automatically covered up to existing limits chosen; and
  • Documents, wills, titles, deeds, photos and electronic back-up devices are covered.

“Our patented solution offers tangible benefits far beyond any existing homeowners’ insurance policy, with the added advantages of confidentiality, convenience and transparency,” said Jerry Pluard, President of SDBIC. “We are thrilled to be working with a leading and respected institution such as First Citizens National Bank.”
