Committed to Your Successful Transition

We are pleased to announce that Hamilton State Bank legally merged with Ameris Bank on Friday, June 29, 2018. The transition of Hamilton State Bank’s operating systems and signage to Ameris Bank is scheduled to occur at a later date. Closer to this time, you will receive more information. Until then, Hamilton State Bank will continue to operate as customary as a division of Ameris Bank.

As we move into this period of transition, we thank you in advance for continuing to bank with Hamilton State Bank and Ameris Bank. We understand the importance of having a trusted and valued financial partner, and as a result, we are honored to welcome you to Ameris Bank. Visit this website often, as it will continuously update as additional information becomes available.

As we begin this exciting new chapter, please note:

  • Uninterrupted access – continue to bank as you normally do, as no action is required at this time. Continue using your Hamilton State Bank branches, checks, debit cards, credit cards, ATMs, online and mobile banking. At this time, your accounts, pricing, terms and conditions remain unchanged. Continue to contact your local Hamilton State Bank representative or branch with account questions or concerns.
  • Hamilton State Bank’s operating systems, accounts, services and signage will transition to Ameris Bank at a later date. Closer to this time, you will receive more information. In the meantime, stay up to date by visiting this website often.
  • Our goal is to keep you fully informed and to make the transition to Ameris Bank a smooth one. Ameris Bank and Hamilton State Bank will keep all of our customers fully informed well before any changes occur. Please contact a Hamilton State Bank representative to ensure that your mailing address, phone number and email address are up to date so we can reach you with valuable communication.

We are here to help
