BankPlus originally opened in Belzoni, Miss., as Citizens Bank & Trust Company in 1909 and changed to BankPlus in September 1994 following the merger of Southeast Mississippi Bank in Quitman and CB&T.

In Jackson, the bank offers personal checking and savings accounts, personal, auto and real estate loans, home equity credit lines, treasury services, mobile banking and more.

BankPlus launched its Affordable Housing Program in early 2002 to help local residents become homeowners and also to assist nonprofit organizations that provide affordable housing. It also operates an Adopt-a-School program that provides resources for local schools and takes part in the American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s annual National Teach Children to Save Day.
