Combined banks strengthen community banking in western Kansas.


We are pleased to announce that Valley State Bank has officially joined Security State Bank! This merger brings together two local banks that share a commitment to serving our respective western Kansas communities.

We invite you to read the full press release.

As we merge the two banks, we’ll be making improvements to products and services gradually. In an effort to keep everyone well informed, we’ll be updating this page with merger updates.

What’s Next?

For Valley State Bank Customers:

  • Valley State Bank branches will be rebranded with Security State Bank signage within the near future. Otherwise, much will stay the same as you become a Security State Bank customer.
  • The Valley State Bank personnel you’ve come to know will stay on as Security State Bank employees.
  • You can continue using your current checks and debit cards.
  • You can continue accessing online banking via and the Valley State mobile banking app.
  • We plan to combine our core processing systems towards the end of 2024, at which time you’ll learn about any changes to your products or services. You’ll get plenty of advance notice to be sure the conversion doesn’t inconvenience you.

For Security State Bank Customers:

  • Continue using your existing products and services as usual.
  • Once we combine our systems later this year, you’ll have access to additional branches in Garden City and Syracuse, and a loan production office in Dodge City.

Future Updates

We will provide additional information as we work to ensure the transition is smooth and convenient. Check back on this page periodically.

We measure our success by the success of the communities we serve. We’re proud to include Dodge City, Garden City and Syracuse among those communities. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
