We Give You Options to Help You Save

Save for the Future with a Certificate of Deposit
A Certificate of Deposit (i.e., CD) from First State Bank is a safe way to supplement your savings and receive an anticipated rate of return. If you have just $1,000 to put toward savings for a specific period of time, you can watch it reap the benefits that come from fixed interest rates and the backing of the FDIC. With a First State Bank CD, you have the option to have your interest deposited into an account or compounded into your CD. Additionally, we offer a variety of maturities on our CDs to give you options to help you build a stronger financial future.
