Midstates Bank, NA and Kingsley State Bank will soon become one.
Let Us Help Answer Your Questions
Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible and keep you informed along the way. As with any change, there are questions to be answered. How does this affect me? When will my accounts change?
We have included many of these answers in our Frequently Asked Questions. However, we understand that you might still have questions. We are here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact your local branch.
There are no immediate changes. Kingsley State Bank clients can continue to conduct their banking as usual. You can continue to use your current checks, deposit slips, debit and ATM cards, and your direct deposits, pre-authorized/recurring transactions and statements will continue without interruption. You can also continue to use your current online banking accounts and mobile app. You will be notified well in advance of any changes that may be required by the data processing conversion.
After the data processing conversion is complete later this summer, customers will be converted to Midstates Bank branded materials. You will be getting a new ATM/Debit card and replacement checks. Customers will also begin to access their online banking accounts through Midstatesbank.com site and their mobile app. Again, you will be notified well in advance of any change that may be required by the data processing conversion.
You should see the same friendly frontline and loan staff you have enlisted in the past to help with your ongoing needs and requests. We will continue to provide convenient hours of operation and our phone numbers will also remain unchanged.
Continue to make payments as per your loan agreement. All existing terms and conditions of your loan(s) and line(s) of credit will remain the same and will be assumed and honored by Midstates Bank. More importantly, the people you know and trust for your loan and deposit needs will not change as a result of this merger.
No, neither Kingsley State Bank nor Midstates Bank will call or email you to ask for your personal, confidential information. However, if you call us, we may ask you for some of that information to simply verify your identity. Please let us know if someone calls or emails you, claiming to be from Kingsley State Bank or Midstates Bank and asks you for personal, confidential information.
When FDIC insured banks merge, deposits from the assumed bank (Kingsley State Bank, in this case) are separately insured from deposits at the assuming bank (Midstates Bank) for at least six months after the merger. This gives depositors from the merged bank the opportunity to restructure his or her accounts if necessary. Simply reach out to your banker to discuss FDIC insurance any time.
Midstates Bank was carefully selected for the merger, based on similar values of integrity, community service, and commitment to their customers and employees. Midstates has been serving Western Iowa since 1876, and currently offers 6 locations including Harlan, Missouri Valley, Avoca, Mondamin, and Council Bluffs. Combined, the merged bank will have assets in excess of $500 million, with over 100 employees. To learn more, go to Midstates Bank About Us page.
