Starting October 18, Select Bank & Trust customers are welcome to use First Bank branch ATMs for withdrawals throughout the Carolinas free of charge.

We’re Glad You’re Here

Although you won’t see the branches and signs change just yet, we’re hard at work integrating the two banks’ systems. This will be completed in March 2022.

Your current deposit accounts remain FDIC insured up to $250,000 throughout this time of transition, separate from any accounts you already have at First Bank. After the integration in March, your FDIC coverage will be calculated based on the combined total of your accounts. Additionally, until the integration is completed, you will continue to manage and update your Select Bank & Trust accounts through the Select Bank & Trust website, mobile app, and at Select Bank & Trust branches only.

Who We Are

First Bank was born in the heart of the Carolinas in 1935 with one mission: to help our communities and customers achieve financial independence, to prosper, and to pursue the passions that drive their dreams—much like Select Bank & Trust. We are the largest, independent community bank headquartered in North Carolina, which means we can offer everything the big banks can—from mortgages to commercial loans, a range of checking accounts to a suite of business tools—but deliver personalized service and solutions with bankers who know your name and live in your neighborhood.

In March 2022 when the Select Bank & Trust branches become First Bank locations, you’ll see friendly and familiar faces, and you’ll have access to great new online banking offerings like a budget management tool and person-to-person payment options. Plus, First Bank offers a robust credit card rewards program, an expanded network of branches (more than 100 throughout the Carolinas), wealth management services*, and free financial education resources.

We’ll Keep You in the Loop

Throughout the coming months, in your mail and to your email, we’ll be sending you information about your account(s) and about this exciting transition. Please be sure to check in with your local Select Bank & Trust branch to make sure your contact information is up to date, or if it’s more convenient, you can sign into online banking to securely ask a question or update your details.

What’s Not Changing

Your bank remains committed to the people and the communities it serves and to our promise of helping you achieve your goals.

We’re confident you’re going to like what’s ahead and hope you will join us in celebrating this partnership.
