Coronavirus Preparedness Statement
We recognize that our communities continue to be impacted in a variety of ways by COVID-19, and our plan is to act with an abundance of caution to protect our employees and customers while adhering to the recommendations of our governmental and health care partners. We have created this page to keep you informed of the actions we are currently taking to do our part.
Our Drive-Ups are Open
Lobbies remain closed to general customer traffic. We will continue to update this page as the situation may change.
Appointments may be available for select, urgent matters after a brief assessment of the situation to determine if we are unable to provide alternative solutions in addition to the risk of the transaction. Please call your local office should you desire to talk about an appointment.
Those offices with Drive-Up Services will continue to keep the drive-up open. Please be patient with our employees as they work to serve an increased number of our customers via this method. The following offices do not have Drive-Up Services and will be closed to unscheduled customer interactions:
- Fond du Lac Festival Foods, 1125 E. Johnson St.
- Milwaukee, W239 N1700 Busse Rd (Waukesha)
- Glenbeulah, 105 E. Main St.
- Dalton, N751 County Road FF
Our after-hours depositories at locations with a drive-up and at our Waukesha location will be checked at multiple times during business hours in order to execute the transaction during the business day of deposit. In Glenbeulah and at our location inside Festival Foods, we will be checking the night depositories at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and processing transactions located within them for credit at that time.
As a reminder, we have several non-personal contact banking options such as eBanking and mobile check deposit in addition to ATMs.
We look forward to resuming normal business access points as it is determined that the need for social distancing has decreased or been eliminated.
Effective Monday, March 23, for existing customers facing unexpected expenses or financial difficulties due to reduced work hours, layoffs, or lack of income due to business closures, upon request, we will waive the minimum balance requirement on checking and savings accounts through May 31, 2020. Please reach out to your local office to discuss this temporary option with a banker via phone today.
Loan customers with concerns about their ability to pay should reach out to their lender for conversation.
Please remember that your money is the safest in the bank. Keeping large amounts of cash in your home has a number of safety risks. Please exercise caution when considering deviating from your cash patterns and reach out to your banker if you have questions.
