Why Us

What Makes Us Different?

When you choose First Federal Lakewood, you’re not choosing just another bank. You’re choosing to join the thousands of people just like you who believe in our community and are committed to helping it thrive.

With us, your deposit dollars will be reinvested close to home. So just by banking with us, you’re helping to foster economic growth in the neighborhoods where we all live and work.

We are deeply rooted in the communities we serve. That means that we make decisions that benefit you, the overall local economy, and our employees — NOT shareholders. We give 5% of our net profits back to the community every year, and our employees donate an incredible amount of their time in support of various local events, organizations, and community service efforts.

If all this sounds a little unusual for a bank, it’s because we’re not just another bank. We’ve proudly been a part of the communities we serve for over 85 years, and we are committed to meeting your needs both today and well into the future.

Along with a supportive work environment, I enjoy the relationships we are able to create with our customers. Not only are we able to help customers with their financial needs, we are in a unique position to give back to the communities that make it possible for us to do what we do.”
