The release:

Credit Associated Bank

At Associated Bank, the health and well-being of our customers, colleagues and communities are our top priority. Given the evolving concerns around COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and to help support community health management efforts, we are temporarily suspending lobby access at most of our branch locations. These changes will go into effect Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We plan to resume full branch access on Monday, April 13, 2020, subject to public health conditions at that time.

We continue to offer many options to serve your banking needs:

Online and Mobile Banking

We encourage you to manage your accounts using online and mobile banking. These 24/7/365 services allow you to safely view transactions, check balances, make payments, deposit checks and more – right from the comfort of your home.

Drive Thru and Night Deposit Box Services

Our drive thru services remain available during regular hours and offer most banking services. If you don’t have a vehicle, you are welcome to visit our drive thru locations on bicycle or as a pedestrian. For your safety, we recommend using the lane closest to the building and ask you to be alert to other traffic. Customers may also continue to use the night drop boxes available at all of our locations.


Our ATMs, located outside of branch lobbies, are accessible 24/7/365. Associated Bank ATMs allow you to deposit cash and checks directly into your account.
