Banking in the Erie Area

Erie, Pennsylvania, has the perfect combination of small town charm and big city energy that includes several area attractions in a beautiful, natural setting along the shores of Lake Erie. The four-season climate, solid transportation infrastructure, and strong work ethic make Erie a wonderful place to live. Residents find everything they need right at hand, including several financial institutes ready to serve all of their banking needs.

Not everyone can do their banking during traditional bank hours, so Erie’s more than 15 banks offer over 200 branches throughout the area where customers can enjoy 24-hour ATM service, along with online account access. These branches, along with the 30+ credit unions, are also available during regular business hours for face-to-face, professional assistance with checking accounts, savings accounts, retirement plans, and loans. With institutions such as Northwest Savings Bank, Marquette Savings Bank, and Erie Federal Credit Union making Erie their headquarters, those living here and within the surrounding communities can take advantage of the competitive rates offered on loans to help with school, buying a first home, or improving their existing residence.

Union Building and Loan Savings Bank has been in operation since 1893, serving the people of Erie. They are a fine example of the type of financial institution found in this city. Whether just starting out or wondering how to handle retirement, along with everything in between, there is a bank that’s just right for each citizen living in this area.
