We’re here for you.
Like us, you are probably anxiously watching the news and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website for more information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and when it’s safe to get back to normal again. This is a difficult time for our Carolina communities and the country, but please know that First Bank is here to support you.
Your Money is Safe & We are Open
First, we want to reassure you that your money is safe. We are maintaining all of our enhanced safety and security measures. If you ever have any questions or want to confirm your balance and transactions, we encourage you to download our mobile app.
All First Bank locations are currently open. In North Carolina, we continue to operate as a drive thru or by appointment only. In South Carolina, our lobbies are open, but we’re maintaining social distancing and other safety protocols as recommended by the CDC and state government.
Our teams continue to be diligent, and the safety of our customers and our associates remains paramount. First Bank is exceeding the recommendations from the CDC in regards to cleaning, sanitizing, and monitoring all commonly used surfaces in the branches, drive thrus, and at the ATM.

Stay Safe Online
There have been multiple reports of emails, texts, and phone calls being initiated by bad actors using the coronavirus as for phishing/smishing attacks and scams.
Be sure not to give out personal information like your account number, online banking ID, SSN, or credit or debit card details in reply to any call, text, or email that you may receive.
Additionally, please note that First Bank will not ask for a Secure Access Code for our online or mobile banking ever when helping you with a question or concern about your account.
