Direct deposit delivers your payroll, Social Security, etc. directly into your bank account quickly and safely. Your employer or the US Treasury sends an electronic message to First National Bank of Gilbert, crediting your account with the exact amount of your deposit. You can withdraw money, put some in savings or pay bills-the things you do with your money now. The difference is, your check isn't printed or mailed.
Benefits to Direct Deposit:
- There are no checks to be lost or stolen
- Your deposit will be in your bank account on time--even if you are out of town, sick, or unable to get to the bank
- Direct deposit can help you avoid bouncing checks because the deposit is direct and on time
It can save you trips to the bank and help you avoid long lines at teller windows or ATMs

Our overdraft protection is termed a Ready Reserve Account. Ready Reserve means that we’ve approved, in advance, a personal loan to balance your account if you should overdraw. It’s designed to end checking account overdraft complications, charges, and embarrassing delays.
Use your good credit to qualify for our plan, and your checking account will become a personal loan account. You may write your own loan any time you need extra money for pleasure or an emergency. It’s the freedom of having a reserve fund at your command. To apply, complete the application and talk with one of our Loan Officers.
A Notary Public is a public servant appointed by state government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths. Documents are notarized to deter fraud and to ensure they are properly executed. An impartial witness (the Notary) identifies signers to screen out impostors and to make sure they have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly. Generally, the Notary will ask to see a current identification document or card with a photograph, physical description, and signature. A driver’s license, military ID, or passport will usually be acceptable.
