COVID 19 Emergency Preparedness

Let's Help Protect Our Community from Coronavirus, or COVID-19

What First Bank is doing?

First Bank had temporarily suspended transaction limits and associated fees for both consumer and business Savings and Money Market accounts from Monday, April 27, 2020 until March 1st, 2021.  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

Effective May 4, the SBA announced that the PPP funding was exhausted and the SBA portal would no longer accept PPP Loan applications.  If the PPP application has not been granted an SBA loan number it is considered not approved and will not move forward.  First Bank appreciated the opportunity to work with businesses in our communities to secure PPP funds.

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.
