Citizens Bank

About Us

Citizens Bank is an independently owned, community bank serving the people of the Texas Panhandle and Eastern New Mexico since 1904. Citizens Bank provides prompt, friendly customer service as well as all the latest products and conveniences to meet your banking needs.

Citizens Bank’s history dates back to 1904 when The First National Bank of Claude, Texas was chartered. The original Citizens Bank was founded in 1948 in Tucumcari, New Mexico.  The two banks merged in 2004, taking the name: Citizens Bank.  Today, Citizens Bank operates with banks located in Amarillo, Claude and Tulia, Texas and Tucumcari, New Mexico.

Over the last century Citizens Bank has seen many changes; however, one thing remains the same: local ownership and control.  In today’s ever-changing marketplace, large interstate banks continue to expand, moving the decision-making process out of the local community.  Citizens Bank guarantees that all decisions are made right here, by people who live and invest in the community.

Citizens Bank is a leader in Agricultural lending and has been recognized as one of the top fifty banks in the United States with regard to performance and safety. Twice in 2012 Citizens Bank was cited on MSN Money as one of the safest banks in America. We maintain this reputation and rating by continually exceeding the minimum standards.

Citizens Bank offers a variety of products and services to its customers such as credit cards, checking and savings accounts with imaging, automatic bill pay, Internet banking, and a 24-hour Easy Access phone line. Loan services also include personal, home and commercial loans.

Citizens Bank invites you to come in and see us; you will find that we have your best interest at heart.  Citizens Bank is not just located in your town, it is part of your community.
