Welcome to a bank that knows your name.
First Federal Savings is a Kansas State Chartered Bank. Established in 1923, we were located in downtown Olathe, Kansas, for 87 years. In 2010 the company moved to its current location at 700 East Sante Fe Road in Olathe.
Our institution offers savings accounts, certificates of deposits and mortgages.
First Federal Savings prides itself on being a true community bank where personal service is our top priority. We keep and service our loans; we do not sell them off to large impersonal financial institutions.
Our team enjoys getting to know each of our customers and helping them with their financial needs. We are proud to have served several generations of families in our community and to call Olathe our home.
We have a small but expert staff, so there are no concerns about getting transferred from department to department when you have a question or an issue to discuss. You will know us all by name when you do business with First Federal Savings.
