Frequently Asked Questions
We always welcome you to contact us directly with any questions or concerns you have. We also recognize there could be times you may not be able to reach us for an immediate answer. In those cases, we provide below a list of FAQ’s. We hope you find it helpful.
What are your normal business hours?
Five Star Bank is open Monday thru Friday, 9 am to 4 pm. We are closed Saturday, Sunday and all federal holidays.
Is Five Star Bank FDIC insured?
Yes! However, we would also like to take the opportunity to point out a glaring difference between Five Star Bank and many of our competitors; Five Star Bank can offer you FDIC insurance on multi-million dollar investments! Consider this: a typical bank has an FDIC insured limit of $250,000. If you have more than one deposit with other banks because you are concerned about this standard limit, let Five Star Bank offer an insured solution. Wouldn’t you like the convenience of your deposits under one roof, offering excellent rates and yet be fully FDIC insured? Call us or stop by your nearest location and we will be happy to provide you with additional information.

You may call your local branch during normal business hours, view your account history through our online banking system (NetTeller), or visit your local branch.
