We are ready to continue serving you!

Updated 5/19/20

The coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) continues to be all over the news and we want you to know that our bankers are ready to continue serving you. The health and safety of our team members are a top priority. We have increased the frequency of sanitizing our branches and our team has a remote access plan in place should this issue affect the communities we serve.

As always, the safety of our employees is our first priority. With that in mind, effective 3/18/20 all branches will offer service from the Drive-Thru only during normal hours as designated on the locations pages until further notice. Access to branch lobbies will be by appointment only in an effort to limit contact to keep our employees and customers safe. If you would like to meet with a Banker, please call your nearest branch to schedule an appointment.

As of 3/25/20 at 5 p.m., our Greenway Plaza location in Houston, Texas is temporarily closed. Please visit the nearest branch in Dickinson, TX or call 409.948.1625.
