First Farmers' New Check Vendor

Effective June 1, 2016, First Farmers is working with Main Street Checks to provide printed checks for our checking account customers. 

If you currently have checks from our previous vendor (Harland Clarke) and are getting ready to reorder, please call us at (800)441-BANK and ask to speak to a Personal Banker. We have new catalogs with various styles to choose from. If you like your existing Harland Clarke style and want to order the same style or something similar from Main Street, we will work to find the style that most closely resembles what you now have.

Improve Your Credit Score

How to Repair My Credit and Improve My FICO Scores

It's important to note that repairing bad credit is a bit like losing weight: it takes time and there is no quick way to fix a credit score. In fact, out of all of the ways to improve a credit score, quick-fix efforts are the most likely to backfire, so beware of any advice that claims to improve your credit score fast.

First Installment of Property Taxes Due

Amazing how fast this comes around every year...

All three First Farmers State Bank locations accept real estate tax payments for both McLean and Tazewell Counties and installment #1 is due soon. Both counties require the first installment payments to be made no later than Wednesday, June 1. Unfortunately, we cannot accept late payments.

Questions or disputes regarding your bill must be directed to the McLean County Treasurer's Office or the Tazewell County Treasurer's Office. First Farmers cannot resolve these matters for you.

Payments can be made inside the bank and via the drive-up during regular bank hours or in our night depositories.

If you’re looking for a unique gift that will last, consider a 2016 Silver Eagle Coin! The 2016 Uncirculated Silver American Eagle Dollars contain one troy ounce of .999 fine silver and are the largest and heaviest silver dollars minted. It makes a wonderful gift for a birthday, graduation or any special occasion—or a collectible for yourself!

The Silver Eagle was introduced in 1986, and a new edition has been minted every year since.


The 2016 Silver Eagle comes encapsulated in a clear, virtually air-tight plastic case for $31.95*.
