Welcome CBC National Bank/First Federal Bank Customers

We're pleased to meet you.

Learn more about the partnership of Citizens First Bank and CBC National Bank/First Federal Bank.


Welcome to the Citizens First Bank family! 

Citizens First Bank is acquiring the Burnsed Boulevard branch office of CBC National Bank/First Federal Bank.  We are genuinely excited to have the opportunity to serve the customers of this branch office.

The conversion is currently targeted for the weekend of August 24, 2018.  The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval.  As a result, the conversion could be delayed if regulatory approval is not received by the target date.  We will apprise you if the target date is delayed.

As a Citizens First Bank customer, you will have access to ten branch offices and sixty-five ATMs throughout The Villages, plus our branch offices in Fruitland Park and Leesburg.  Also available to you will be our online banking and mobile banking.  Convenience is particularly important to bank customers, and we think we have you well covered, no matter how you prefer to manage your banking.

To help during and following the conversion, our Account Services team is ready to provide assistance to you.  The phone number for our Account Services department is (352) 753-9515, or (800) 707-1893.

We sincerely look forward to serving all your banking needs!
