provide you with the same friendly, personalized customer service you have always

known from us. Our drive-thru branches are open for normal business hours; and our

personal bankers, loan officers and operational staff are on call to handle any of your

Benchmark Bank is strong, healthy and ready to help our customers. In fact,

Benchmark is proud to have once again received the Bauer 5-Star rating indicating we

together. Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy and please call us if we can be of assistance

in any way. Our mobile numbers are below should you want to reach out and visit.

Thank you for your business. Please know you are our top priority and the lifeblood of
