Boston, MA March 18, 2011

         State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT) today announced a quarterly dividend of
$0.18 per share of common stock, payable April 15, 2011, to stockholders of record as
of April 1, 2011. Today’s announced common stock dividend represents an increase of

         State Street also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new
common stock purchase program authorizing the purchase of up to $675 million of

time.
