Welcome to First Commonwealth Bank.

Our Story

For our history buffs, we were founded as a community bank in 1982, the result of a merger of multiple community banks throughout Western Pennsylvania. Our local roots run deep, and today we have grown to have locations in Central Pennsylvania and Central, Northern and Southern Ohio communities as well, all the while maintaining our hometown headquarters in Indiana, Pennsylvania.

We operate in 26 counties throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania and Central, Northern and Southern Ohio, including our community offices, corporate banking centers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Cleveland, Canton, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio plus mortgage loan offices in Wexford, Pennsylvania and Hudson, Ohio.

What We Do

We come to work each day committed to our core values and we believe we exist to make a difference in the lives of our customers. We are big enough to deliver all of the services of a large bank, yet small enough to allow for one-on-one, know-you-by-name relationships with our customers. We work hard to help improve financial lives in the areas of personal banking, small business and commercial banking, insurance, investments, trust and estate planning. In fact, our employees love their careers so much that they've earned us several recognitions, including Forbes World's Best Banks in 2019, 2020 and 2021, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Top Workplaces in 2019 and 2020, and more. Check out our recognitions.

Why We Do It

Your money matters. And what you do with it matters even more. We believe as a community bank that we can make profit with a purpose by helping customers become financially confident by adopting the four life-changing habits of managing, saving, borrowing and protecting their money. We do this because we know that financial confidence helps you sleep better at night. By partnering with our customers, we can take small (and sometimes big) steps every day to improve lives.
