The 3,950-square foot North Star Branch (5850 Westover Avenue) features a staff of seven, two drive-up lanes, a drive-up ATM and a night drop depository. The branch also houses First National's first full-function customer kiosk, where customers can handle routine banking transactions online without teller assistance.
First National has a 70-year history of serving Alaska's military. It began in 1943 with a facility in Adak, which provided banking services to soldiers and civilian workers stationed there during World War II. At the time, it was the westernmost banking institution in the United States.
Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and 30 branches in 18 communities throughout the state. Forbes named the bank one the nation's Top 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in 2012 and 2013.
