An Important Update From Our CEO – How Partners Bank of California is Addressing California’s Statewide Stay-at-Home Order

Each day begins with more changes and challenges. Governor Gavin Newsom recently issued a “Stay at Home Order” for the residents of California which has prompted us to make a few client-facing changes here at Partners Bank of California.

In-person visits to the Bank’s offices has dropped off considerably, but we are seeing an increase in electronic banking activity, including increasing use of the online and digital banking channels for account inquiries, transfers, and for depositing checks. For the safety of our clients, we will continue to discourage in-person visits to our offices if a trip can be avoided.

For the safety of our team members, we are also migrating more of our staff to a work-at-home model. Therefore, effective March 23, 2020 and until further notice, our Mission Viejo office hours will be temporarily changed to 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. A drop box will be available at the front door during business hours for documents and check deposits, with items retrieved immediately. The branch team will mail transaction receipts to your address on file, and you can review online to confirm that your transaction has been posted.

Visits to the Beverly Hills branch will now require an appointment by calling (949) 732-4000 or (866) 323-2741. All clients who have made a personal visit to this office in the last several weeks have been contacted. Should mailing or overnight delivery of documents be necessary, please direct deliveries to our Mission Viejo location. Contact information for both offices and client support is listed, below.
