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 have 126 community banking offices in 30 counties throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio, as well as business banking centers in Harrisburg and Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Cleveland, Canton, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio. First Commonwealth, through subsidiaries First Commonwealth Bank and First Commonwealth Insurance Agency, provides a full range of commercial and retail banking services, including mortgage, wealth management and insurance solutions, along with equipment financing and SBA and indirect lending.

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 from 2019-2023, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Top Workplaces from 2019-2023 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.
