Update on COVID-19

First Southwest Bank • March 12, 2020

Updated March 26, 2020: Dear valued customers, at this time, we have had to temporarily close our Saguache branch, for the personal safety of our staff and our customers, because we do not have walk up or drive up facilities. Please visit the drive-up at our Center branch, 2060 East Highway 112, Center, CO 81125 or call 1.866.641.FSWB (3792) for banking assistance. 

Updated, March 17, 2020: First Southwest Bank is open, but to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are temporarily closing our lobbies as of Wednesday, March 18th. Please continue to utilize our drive-up facilities, walk-up facilities, Night Drops, ATMs, digital banking services and our online loan portal for consumer and commercial loans.  Thank you for understanding.  Be safe!
