First National Bank of Buhl


“To best comply with the new Executive Order 20-81, we will be closing our lobbies again starting Monday, July 27th until further notice. We encourage everyone to use the wonderful suite of electronic services that we offer including Internet Banking, Bill Pay, Remote Deposit and our Mobile app.  Of course we are still available to sit down with you but please call ahead and make an appointment. It is our responsibility to maintain the utmost safety standards for our customers and employees, but we will still be here for all your financial needs.”

We want to thank you all for your continued support and would like to apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you all for your cooperation in the matter!

Attention customers,

Due to the recent impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be altering our operations of business slightly. Starting today (3/23/2020) at 12pm we will be closing our lobbies at both locations to only limited services. We will still be operating our regular hours as usual, but urge everyone to use our Drive-thru services unless absolutely necessary. We want all our customers and employees to remain safe and healthy during the current situation. With “Social Distancing” becoming even more strongly urged, this is our best course of action to help everyone stay well and still be able to accommodate all the financial needs of our loyal customers. Please use our online functions to help lower the need for making a trip to the bank. If you already have an online account great! If you do not, simply go to our webpage,, and click the enroll button. If you need assistance with setting one up, we are only a phone call away and will be more than happy to assist you.

If you know ahead of time you will need to meet with a loan officer, open a new account, or access your safe deposit box, we recommend that you call a day before and schedule an appointment to meet with someone. We have printable applications for loans, accounts and more available on our website for your convenience. We have the capabilities to do electronic signings as well.

This definitely will be an adjustment for everyone, and believe us we definitely understand. Our goal make everything as easy as possible while still looking out for all of you and our staff. Remember, we are only a phone call away if you need any assistance with your banking needs. We will get through this crisis by working together and staying healthy. Please continue to visit our Facebook and Website pages to keep you current with all the happenings at fnbob. We truly appreciate each and everyone of you and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you all for your continued support and loyalty! We hope you all stay healthy and have a wonderful day!

Thanks again everyone!


Dear FNBOB Family,

As the COVID-19 continues to evolve, there seems to be more questions than answers out there.  I want to reassure you that we have spent years preparing and testing plans to ensure that a pandemic like we are currently facing will not disrupt your very important financial services. We understand your concerns and want to ensure you that we have taken aggressive steps to ensure that there will be no disruption of your banking needs. 

  • We have implemented travel restrictions for our employees to better protect your health
  • We have implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitary practices to minimize the spread of any virus
  • We are applying social distancing techniques to better protect you

To help slow the spread of any illness and for your optimal safety, we suggest using electronic banking channels as much as possible.  We suggest taking advantage of internet banking services and using your debit card instead of cash to reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 or other illnesses. By using your debit card instead of cash, you will greatly reduce the chance of transferring illness within our great communities and keep our neighbors safer.

We also understand that your personal financial needs may be changing due to current and unforeseen economic conditions.  Rest assured that we understand and are here to discuss your situation with you so please don’t hesitate to call and discuss your concerns.  We are all in this together and by working together we can overcome any difficulties.
