Rockville Financial (RCKB) in Glastonbury, Conn., and United Financial Bancorp (UBNK) in West Springfield, Mass., have secured four of the five regulatory approvals needed to complete their high-profile merger.

The companies said in a press release Wednesday that the Connecticut Department of Banking had approved the deal earlier this week. They have also received a green light from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Federal Reserve Board. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency informed the companies that it does not intend to make any comments on the notice it received.
