Frequently Asked Questions by Western State Bank Customers

I can’t access online banking. What should I do?

Western State Bank recently transitioned to new Online & Mobile Banking platforms. Passwords were changed to a temporary password. If you have not yet set up your new credentials please visit our step-by-step guide for how to log in.

If you already set up your new credentials please try the following:

First, check to make sure you are typing the correct user ID and password; your user ID must be typed in all lowercase letters, and your password is case sensitive. As a security feature, your account will be locked after three failed attempts. If this happens, and if you're unable to reset your password on your own, please contact your local banking center to help you access your account. If you have any other issues, please contact us. We’d be happy to walk you through it!

What is required to open an account and how much do I have to deposit?

We require a minimum deposit of $250 to open an account. Please visit your local banking center and be sure to bring your government issued photo ID, social security card or ITIN card, and proof of address when setting up the account.

Do you have cash back rewards?

Yes! Through Western Rewards, all Western State Bank personal debit cardholders earn points for purchase, which can be redeemed for cash back and more. Please visit our Western Rewards page for all the details.

How do I sign up for your debit card rewards program?

All Western State Bank personal debit cardholders are already enrolled and earning points for purchases! You do not need to sign up for the program, but you will want to create an account on the Western Rewards website so you can start tracking your points and redeem them for cash back, merchandise, local gift cards, travel and more.

Do you have to have a social security number to open a bank account or to get a loan?

How much does it cost to exchange coins at Western State Bank?

Western State Bank does not currently charge a fee for exchanging coins, even for non-customers. All of our western Kansas banking centers exchange coins free of charge. Quick and convenient automatic coin machines are also available in our Dodge City and Garden City banking centers. Our 10% non-customer coin exchange fee may be reinstated at any time.

How does Online Bill Pay work?

Online bill pay allows you to pay bills without ever having to write a check. You can even set them up to be paid on a monthly basis. The funds are automatically deducted from your checking account to the payee you designate.

Is there a limit to the number of transfers I can make in a month?

It depends on the type of account. Savings or Money Market accounts are limited to 6 withdrawals per month. Our checking accounts have unlimited withdrawals.
