To our clients:

Scott McCombOur lives have changed dramatically over the last several weeks as we work together to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We assure you, as your community bank, we are here for you. As we monitor developments and learn more about the impact of the virus, our primary concern is for the health and safety of our communities, clients, and associates.

Heartland Bank, and its parent Heartland BancCorp, are financially strong and well-positioned to support you. Since 1911, we have navigated many economic cycles without a disruption in providing clients with access to their funds and I have complete confidence this will continue. We have earned a repeated ranking on American Banker Magazine’s list of Top 200 Publicly Traded Community Banks and Thrifts based on three-year average return on equity (“ROE”). From the perspective of our regulatory agencies, we are considered an exceptionally strong bank, including our capital ratios, which far surpass the criteria needed to be considered well-capitalized.

We have a plan in place and are prepared to withstand challenging times. The Heartland BancCorp Board of Directors, my colleagues and I are proud to have built our organization to be successful and supportive through all economic cycles. As we continue to face unknown challenges, we remain committed to continue to work to provide the resources and experience you rely upon.  I personally thank you for trusting your banking services with us through this crisis and everyday.

Sincerely,

G. Scott McComb
Chairman and CEO


Our Branch Locations

As Heartland continues with our commitment to provide the recommended protection to our associates and clients, we are diligently monitoring daily updates regarding COVID-19 and following guidance from federal, state and local officials. With this daily monitoring in place, Heartland Bank has reopened all branch lobby locations, with the exception of Capital Square and Croton. Please stay tuned for more information about the Capitol Square and Croton reopen plans for later this summer.

 

Face coverings are mandatory during your visit inside our lobbies. Social distancing is required, and we will be operating at limited capacity, if necessary, inside all branch lobbies. For additional safety, restrooms and coffee bars will also be closed at this time. In order to keep clients safe, we are assessing staff health daily, cleaning surfaces frequently, providing accessible hand sanitizer and utilizing social distancing protocols. 

 

If clients have specific concerns, we encourage them to call the branch manager or a branch associate for assistance. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
