What First Bank is doing?

Savings and Money Market Account Withdrawal Limitations

We limit telephone, online, third party checks or pre-authorized transfers to six per month. If you exceed these limits, a monthly “Excessive Activity Fee” will be assessed one-time for each statement cycle (Money Market accounts), or each month (Savings) in which your account exceeds this limit.    

As always, the safety of our First Bank clients and employees is our highest priority. As such, due to the recent events surrounding COVID-19, First Bank has implemented added precautionary measures to help fight the spread of this disease and further protect our impacted communities. In light of recent events, we are implementing the following course of action:

  • Our branches and ATMs are cleaned daily as part of our normal course of business. We have increased those efforts by continuously disinfecting surfaces that are frequent points of contact, such as door handles, keyboards, PIN pads, ATM screens and many others, throughout the day.
  • Asking any employee with direct or indirect exposure to self-quarantine for the recommended period of time, while seeking medical attention from a qualified healthcare provider.
  • Educating our employees on COVID-19, encouraging self-monitoring for any associated symptoms, and asking employees to remain at home when ill.
  • Following the CDC's guidelines for prevention, including adhering to proper hygiene habits with the addition of maintaining additional cleaning and sanitation supplies at all locations.
  • Call our First Bank Service Center at 800-760-2265 on weekdays from 7 AM to 9 PM and on Saturdays from 9 AM to 5:30 PM (Central Time).
  • Branches are appointment only.

PPP First Draw or Second Draw Loan Application Request

On March 25, Congress voted to extend the deadline to apply for a PPP loan through May 31.  On Friday, April 2, we will resume accepting new applications for First and Second Draw PPP loans.  We are only able to submit completed applications to the SBA. Please note that there is no guarantee that we will be able to finish our review successfully to submit an application and resolve any errors with the SBA by the program deadline, that the SBA will approve the loan or that funds will remain available by the time an application is submitted and approved.  To increase the likelihood that your PPP loan will be approved before the program closes, we strongly recommend that you submit your complete application as soon as possible.  This is not a commitment to lend and all loans are subject to the program requirements and availability of funds under the SBA PPP Program.

PPP Forgiveness Application Request

First Bank is employing a standardized client initiated Paycheck Protection Program- Forgiveness Application process. This first step will assist you in identifying the applicable SBA Forgiveness Application, either the SBA’s Form 3508S, 3508EZ, or 3508.
