First Federal Savings & Loan Bank (First Federal) is a Kansas State Chartered Bank. Established in 1923, we were located in downtown Olathe for 87 years, until we moved to our current location in November 2010. Our institution offers savings accounts, certificates of deposits and mortgages.


First Federal prides itself on being a true community bank where personal service is our top priority. We keep and service our loans and enjoy getting to know each of our customers. We have only six employees, so there are no concerns about getting transferred from department to department when you have a question or an issue to discuss.
