Welcome to BankWest

As of July 1, 2016, First State Bank officially became part of the BankWest family. 

Who is BankWest?
BankWest, headquartered in Pierre, South Dakota, is a locally-owned, community bank that was founded in 1889. Our corporate headquarters, our management team and our roots remain firmly planted in South Dakota. For more than 125 years, our business philosophy has been centered on helping our customers succeed and our communities prosper. Please visit the BankWest website at www.bankwest-sd.com to get acquainted with our background and services.

What does this mean to my current banking relationship?
As we work through the merger process, our goal is to minimize disruption to your current services, while making you aware of new opportunities. The employees of First State Bank have joined the BankWest team and stand ready to serve you going forward. We anticipate the majority of changes to First State Bank accounts will be minor in nature, and throughout this transition we’ll continue to communicate as more details are available.

Please visit our Welcome First State Bank page for the latest information.
For now, it’s banking as usual. We appreciate the continued opportunity to serve you.
