Hello Everyone! It has been a while since my last blog; so, there is lots to talk about and fill you all in on! To start off, I want to remind everyone to STAY STRONG! We all know how tough times are right now, and the staff at Independence State Bank want to remind you that we have been here for you since 1897. We will continue to be here for you during these difficult times.
All three branches still have their lobby doors locked until further notice. We have missed seeing everyone’s faces and catching up with our customers, but we just keep reminding ourselves that we are doing this for the safety of our employees and customers. REMEMBER WE WILL STILL HAVE DRIVE-UP OPEN NORMAL HOURS!
Monday – Thursday: 8 AM-5 PM
Friday: 8 AM-5:30 PM
Saturday: 8:30 AM-11:30 AM
(Elk Mound & Independence Branched Only on Saturday)
Staying Clean: Employees at each branch are taking this time to deep clean the bank, sanitize and wipe down everything, and much more. We want all of our customers to know that we are wiping down counter tops, microphones, pens, and pretty much everything else in the bank multiple times a day, using hand sanitizer all day, wearing gloves, and making sure we keep distance from each other to help prevent COVID-19.
Any employees that feel sick, or just don’t feel good, have been staying at home to help prevent the spread of any sicknesses within the branches at Independence State Bank.
Bankers Advice: We know that during times like this, things can get scary and people start to worry. Advice from our bankers here at Independence State Bank: when your money is in the bank it is FDIC Insured, and, when it is not in the bank, it is NOT insured. The LAST THING you want to do is withdrawal all your money because if something happens; such as: getting robbed, fire, losing it, etc., you have NO way to get that money back because again. It’s not FDIC Insured. We want our customers to know that as of today (4-24-2020) Independence State Bank has no intentions to fully close; so, you will have access to your money if you need to.
Scams: As many people know, stimulus checks have been starting to get direct deposited into their accounts. The government has just started sending out the paper checks within this last week. Please be aware of the check(s) you are receiving. It has been reported that there has been scams of people receiving fakes stimulus checks. The tellers and personal bankers at Independence State Bank have the ability to check the credibility of the check, so if you have worries please give us a call and we can check it for you!
