What are Members saying?

I joined members first 6 years ago after a bad experience with another bank and I have never had a problem. I recommend them to anyone looking to open an account, their customer service is always great.

I have been with Members 1st, since 1998. I have never had a bad experience with them. Everyone has always been helpful and polite anytime I have gone inside.

I’m not going to lie; my direct deposit pays me a day earlier at Member’s 1st.

I've banked with different banks and they say the right things to reel you in and then don't follow through. But Members 1st has been nothing but helpful and kind. They helped me understand credit and gave some very helpful advice.…Thank you for everything you do!

We have been with Members 1st. for years and love the friendly customer service, convenient locations and remote deposit!! So thankful for the personal loan when we were adopting our beautiful daughter. Couldn't have done it without Members 1st. Thank you!

Our family has banked with Members 1st for many, many years. Customer service is #1. Love the smaller town vibe. You know your customers and that rates high in my book.
