Temporary Branch Closures

We are temporarily closing 19 branch locations as we work to adhere to government guidance related to social distancing to stop the spread of COVID-19. 57 branches remain open. Clients can visit our nearest open branch location to conduct their banking in-person if they choose, or can access our online banking platform, drive-thru locations and ATMs. Our bankers are also available by appointment to facilitate safe deposit box access, account opening or important document delivery.
