We are committed to our communities.
This commitment includes the new Sandhills Support Plan - a plan designed to assist Sandhills customers facing a loss of income, business interruption, and economic uncertainty as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
What does this mean for you?
Ag Customers: The opportunity to make interest-only payments for 12 months on term loans.
Business Customers: The opportunity to make interest-only payments for 12 months on term loans and the Bank will help you with applying for direct SBA assistance.
Mortgage Customers: The opportunity to defer loan payments for 90 days.
Consumer Customers: The opportunity to defer loan payments for 90 days.
Contact your Banker directly or through the form on our website to determine eligibility.
Sandhills State Bank was built during the subprime mortgage crisis by people who helped the Sandhills navigate the farm crisis of the 1980s. We were specifically designed to help customers and communities prosper during both good times and bad.
We know these are trying times, but know that we’ve got your back.

Community is our priority at Sandhills State Bank.
I want to reinforce to you our continued commitment to the health and safety of our communities, customers, and employees and make you aware of some adjustments we are making to support public health efforts.
For Our Communities.
Effective Thursday, March 19th, we are closing our lobbies until further notice. Drive-thru service will be available to those branches with drive-thru windows, otherwise please utilize our night deposits for delivery of items. If you have questions or need to meet with a Banker, please contact your branch to schedule a meeting. We will keep our branch hours and access updated here.
For Our Customers.
Effective Thursday, March 19th, we are increasing debit card limits to $1,000 to accommodate fewer trips to the store. Online and Mobile Banking are the perfect ways to Bank from Anywhere and our surcharge-free network of ATMs is always ready. If you have recently traveled or do not feel well, please notify us so we can serve you through the most appropriate channel.
For Our Employees.
We are continuing to use the public health best-practices to prevent unnecessary exposure to and spread of COVID-19. We love the Sandhills because of the amazing, resilient people that call this beautiful place home. Please continue to be a great neighbor by practicing social distancing, checking in on one another (via phone, email, chat), and staying informed through the CDC and your local health district.
