About the Branch Locator

The Branch Locator is accessible from the Institution Profile Page only and from there you will be able to search for Branches of Domestic Banks. An institution that is a Head Office typically has branches. To access the Institution's Profile page you must first use the Institution Search to search for a bank. The name of each Head Office is a hyperlink. Click on the Head Office name which will take you to the Institution's Profile page. There you will find additional menu buttons displayed at the top of the page. One of those buttons is labeled Branch Locator. Only the Name, RSSD ID, and Location of these branches are provided.

When the Branch Locator button is selected, a search screen will be returned with the name of the selected institution displayed on the screen. More search options are described below under How to Search for Branches of Domestic Banks.

The National Information Center (NIC) does not provide information for the branches of thrifts (savings banks, savings and loan associations, etc.) or credit unions.
