We are excited that First State Bank has merged with Minnwest, together, we are stronger.

    While everything will remain “business as usual” until the operational merger, we’d like you to review this information, as it will help ensure a smooth transition with little to no inconveniences.

    • Branch locations and hours: All First State Bank locations and hours of operation will remain unchanged.
    • Checks:  Use your current First State Bank checks until your supply is depleted.
    • Debit Card: Continue to use your current First State Bank debit card for transactions and purchases.
    • Online Banking: Access your First State Bank account online as you do today.
    • Loans: Make any First State Bank loan payments as you do today.

    Although First State Bank is now Minnwest Bank, our financial and operational systems will not merge until sometime in 2019. Until the merger, you won’t be able to process First State Bank transactions at Minnwest Bank locations. Any new products opened at First State Bank will be First State Bank products, not products available at Minnwest Bank.
