Review For Service Received

I stopped in the Independence FSB branch today to make a deposit. The clerk was very friendly and processed my transaction quickly. I really appreciate the service I receive from them.

Must Live Within 50 Miles Of A Branch To Qualify

We live in Iowa and applied for an account, but were turned down because we lived more than 50 miles from the nearest branch.  It currently doesn't say this on their web site, so be warned....

Stay Away From This Bank.

We opened accounts and less than a week later they changed account types. They knew ahead of time but opened the accounts anyway. Now we are out all the $$ for our new checks much less the almost 1.5 hours it took to get each of the accounts set up. They have a nice small town feel but no morals. They will lie right to your face.
