Information for First Bank customers

Welcome to First Mid!

An Important Message to our New Customers

We were pleased to announce last year that First Mid reached an agreement with First BancTrust Corporation to merge our banks. The conversion of First Bank accounts to First Mid will be effective August 10, 2018, after the close of business.  Over the weekend of August 10, we will complete the integration of First Bank accounts to the First Mid bank system.

In July you will receive a Welcome Packet in the mail containing a Customer Guide (click to view PDF), which includes answers to frequently asked questions and detailed information regarding personal and business products and services. Also in the Welcome Packet is a booklet titled Understanding Your Deposit Account (click to view PDF) outlining the terms, conditions and fees which will govern your deposit account(s) as of Monday, August 13.
