  • As a community bank customer, you have access to our experienced team, and we stand ready to assist you with any of your questions or concerns. We take pride in our relationship-based business model and remain focused on building long-term trust with our customers.
  • The safety and soundness of our institution remains a top priority and we will continue to maintain prudent risk management practices that support our strong capital levels.
  • Nobody has ever lost a dime of FDIC-insured deposits up to $250,000. For those customers who have questions about whether additional insurance coverage is needed, we are ready and prepared to assist you in identifying whether additional insurance coverage is necessary and ensuring your deposit needs are met.
  • If you have questions about your coverage or would like to learn more about FDIC insurance and how it works, we encourage you to access the following resources or give us a call directly at (800) 371-2361 or (802) 757-2361.
