Our Story

About Security First Bank

Security First Bank is a Nebraska-chartered, privately-held community bank with 26 branch locations and 12 insurance offices throughout Nebraska and southwest South Dakota. We provide community banking services from the farm and ranch towns in rural Nebraska to the hub cities of Lincoln and Rapid City. Each branch is managed locally, and our employees are part of the communities we serve. This gives us valuable, local perspective and a personal commitment to servicing your financial needs.

Security First strives to improve the lives of the families and business we serve with creative, high-quality financial services. We believe that attention to detail, flexible and innovative services and remarkable customer care are the pillars of successful community banking, and we’ve been committed to those standards since our founding in 1898.
