  • Customers are encouraged to wear masks when in the branch.

We ask those who have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, to please refrain from visiting our branches. If you feel you are at risk, we ask you to please continue using our Online Banking and Mobile Banking banking options as well as our drive-up windows (where applicable).

We would like to remind you that fraudsters ramp up their efforts during events such as this. As always, we will not call you to request account numbers, card numbers or any other personally identifying information. Those with malicious intent are creating fake websites that look legitimate to attempt to load malicious software on your device without detection. As you perform your own research be sure to only visit and use websites from official sources and do not open or click on emails from unknown sources that will use the topic of COVID-19 to falsely earn your trust. Visit our cybersecurity page to learn more ways to keep yourself protected from fraudulent activity. In response to the Coronavirus the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has updated their financial resources to help protect yourself financially in the short and long term.
