About U.S. Bank
Since the Lincoln administration signed our national bank charter No. 24 in 1863, we’ve drawn on our financial strength to serve customers. This has been especially evident in times of need, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our response by the end of 2020 included a $20 million premium pay program for our employees, relief assistance and 108,000 Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans for our customers, and $30 million in expedited charitable contributions for our communities. As a result, we’re proud to have been named the essential bank amid the pandemic in a ranking by The Harris Poll.
We also recognize that this past year has fundamentally changed banking by accelerating the shift to digital products and services. We’re positioned well for this future, having launched new tools – like the U.S. Bank Smart Assistant – to complement our 26-state branch footprint.
“Our goals are straightforward. We will focus on adding value for our customers and making the necessary investments to ensure long-term success – and we will do it, efficiently, and effectively. We are taking advantage of opportunities on many fronts to further establish ourselves as a leader in the financial services industry. We are well-positioned to make the right moves to accelerate our growth, and we have a strong team to make it possible."
