Let's answer a few questions we are hearing now:  
Is German American Bank a German bank?
No, it's not. German American Bank is American through and through. The bank was organized in 1910 in a community located in the Ohio Valley Region, Jasper, IN. German-American heritage was prominent in this community, as it was throughout much of this geographic region. German American Bank has embraced the significance of its heritage-based name and today empowers its local teams to celebrate the variety of heritages within the local communities served.
German American Bank was named the "Best Bank in Indiana" by Newsweek in 2021 & 2022. Our combined Citizens Union Bank and German American Bank team is on a mission to make the same impact in Kentucky.
Will the same Citizens Union Bank employees serve me?
You'll be served by many familiar faces, and we'll be adding some new local faces. Our commitment is to serve you with local professionals and Customer Service Excellence.
Will Citizens Union Bank offices operate normal business hours?
Yes! The only day the Citizens Union Bank offices will be closed is Saturday, March 5th. We'll be working hard with the German American Bank team to get your accounts, cards and online and mobile banking ready for you to access at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, March 7th. We'll also transition the signage to German American Bank offices. Other than Saturday, March 5th, it's business as usual.
We'll send you a few more e-mails before we officially join the German American family on Monday, March 7th. You can rest-assured knowing we are committed to serving you with Customer Service Excellence to make this a smooth transition for you and your family.

IT Security Tip: Your copier is spying on you....
Modern business equipment has radically changed how we conduct everyday business. Do you realize that copiers and multifunction printers are also one of the leading causes of data breaches?
They are the one device on the network that commonly does not ever have the default password changed. After all, who would want to get in and copy your settings? There might be a different answer if you realize that quite often those copiers keep images of all pages scanned on an internal hard drive. Perfect for someone to anonymously access and steal social security records and sensitive business data.
Take steps to secure your MFP copier today. Change – or ask US to change – default passwords on ALL network-connected devices. Don’t forget this rule when the copier lease is up and a new one is installed! A few quick steps can save a lot of personal data breaches and a lot of security headaches down the road.
