Times like these remind me how fortunate I am to be an Alaskan. During these last few weeks, we appreciated your messages of support reaffirming your confidence and trust in First National, Alaska’s largest community bank. Chief Financial Officer Michele Schuh and I recently had the opportunity to discuss First National’s safety and soundness with the Anchorage Daily News for this story about Alaska banks.

First National continues to do what we do best – making sound business decisions and strengthening relationships with people and businesses who appreciate working with a team of Alaskans who has their back. Effective, consistent banking decisions are not a response to the moment but a cornerstone of who we are.

Many have asked about Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) deposit insurance coverage. The FDIC is an independent federal agency created in 1933 to provide stability in the nation’s banking system. I encourage you to learn more about which accounts the FDIC insures online or by reaching out to a local expert who is ready to provide the answers and tailored support you rely on from First National. Contact us at 907-777-4362, 800-856-4362 or FNBA@FNBAlaska.com.
