About BankPlus

Our History

  • BancPlus Corporation is the parent company of BankPlus, which was founded in 1909 as Citizens Bank & Trust Company (CB&T), in Belzoni, Mississippi. CB&T grew to include locations in central Mississippi and the Delta.

    The name was changed to BankPlus in September 1994, when Southeast Mississippi Bank in Quitman was merged into the banking system, extending our service area to southeast Mississippi.

    This was more than a simple name change. It was the declaration of all that we had worked to build since 1909: a network of well-run community banks, a dedicated team of employees, and products and services that can't be found elsewhere. The name BankPlus and our slogan, "It's more than a name. It's a promise," reflect the enhanced services we offer and emphasize our commitment to giving our customers more for their money.

    We're proud of our community banking roots and strive daily to maintain and build upon that dedication.

    Today, BankPlus is one of the fastest-growing banks in Mississippi with more than $2.9 billion in total assets. We currently have 59 offices in 33 Mississippi communities. We have the vision, the people, the tools, and the locations we need to remain a step ahead of the competition.

    We'll keep right on leading the way with better products like ValuePlus Checking, convenient services like our 7:00am-7:00pm drive-thrus, and a continuing commitment to giving our customers more than they expect.
