You will continue to see the same features, services, and fees on your account, and we will provide you a list of available accounts and features. One important thing to keep in mind: Equity Bank does not charge ATM fees at any ATM in the continental United States! When an ATM asks an Equity Bank customer to accept the charge, the customer can select accept, and we will suppress those fees.

Absolutely! Your local bank is a key to your community. We will continue – and, in some cases, expand – our community support efforts. You will still see your bank associates at football games, grilling hot dogs, and playing hosts to customer events in their communities. We also intend to keep doing business locally with the service providers, organizations, and community efforts that count on our support.

Watch out for any scams to obtain information by individuals or entities that say they are acting on behalf of Security Bank of Kansas City, Equity Bank, or the FDIC. If you are contacted by anyone requesting personal information from you, please contact the FDIC Call Center to report the incident at 1-800-517-1843.
