We are a true community bank.

In fact, we’re not in the banking business; we’re in the people business. We deliver an uncommon commitment to service and solutions to the people of our community. That’s our vision, and it’s a path that satisfies our customers and shareholders, and fulfills our team members. We set ourselves apart by creating value—for you. This vision is what separates us from the rest. Now, and more than ever, we are committed to helping people and to making a difference. 

To enrich the lives of everyone in our community, let’s unite and work together as a team committed to a common goal. After all, we’re called First United. We are all innately passionate about being here for people, helping this community succeed and sincerely wanting to be a part of every solution. Carefully cultivated relationships, uncommon service and a dedication to customize solutions set us apart, impact this community’s future and make people want to say, “That’s my bank!”

The PPP loan will literally save our company at this time and is so desperately needed. I appreciate everything you have done for us and our business.

Local Business Owner

I am very impressed with First United during this Payroll Protection Program process. We are working with at least eight other banks for clients, and First United was clearly the front runner to have their website setup with PPP information and the process working with you couldn’t have been easier.
