To our valued customers,
Throughout our 85-year history, the communities that South State serves have experienced times of prosperity and times of struggle. During these times our company has served as a source of strength, helping our customers and communities in both good and tough times.
While the magnitude of COVID-19 and its impacts has been swift, I want you to know South State is here to support you. Our company was born out of the Great Depression and we stood ready then, as we do today, to help our team members, customers and communities. Our strength as a financial institution has us well-positioned to meet the financial needs of our customers during the weeks and months to come.
At South State, we are focused on building strong and lasting relationships. While social distancing may have changed the way we interact with you temporarily, you have my commitment that we are doing everything we can to ensure you continue to receive the same great banking service you expect.
For those who have experienced or may experience hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering assistance options and support for our customers.
While our personal interactions may be limited as we all work to slow the spread of COVID-19, our teams are standing by ready to serve you at our drive-thrus, over the phone and through our digital banking services. We appreciate the outpouring of support and patience you’ve demonstrated as we implement measures to protect both you and our teams.
In closing, we are not just your bankers. We’re also your neighbors and friends, and we appreciate the trust you have placed in us for your banking needs. We’re grateful for the opportunity to support and serve you as we navigate this challenging time together.
Robert R. Hill, Jr.
