Freedom Checking

No monthly maintenance fees. No balance requirements. No hassle.  Freedom Checking includes a free VISA® Debit Card that you can use in stores and at ATMs worldwide.

Savings Accounts

Helping you build and benefit from your savings is what we’re here for. Earn interest regardless of your balance.  Freedom First has the tools you need to build your nest egg.

Credit Cards

You have choices between Rewards and Rate credit cards. All our cards offer EMV chip technology, $0 annual fees, and much more. See the line up we offer.

Credit Builder

Borrowers who have low or no credit face a catch-22: they are often turned down for loans, and when they are approved, they are charged higher interest rates. That in turn makes repayment more difficult.

Micro Loans

Unsecured loans of up to $3,000 don’t generate the kinds of profits that most banks find worthwhile, but a Micro Loan can be all that’s needed to help borrowers regain their financial footing.

Career Development Loans

Are you are interested in a career development loan for licensure and certification training in Healthcare, Welding, Truck Driving, and CNA? Contact our Community Development team for details.
