2019 marks our 110th year in business!

In 1909, I assume customer service was an important component of selecting a bank and further assume SLB was committed to providing the best.

In 2019, this remains our #1 goal.

Our objective has always been to provide customers with ongoing support, far beyond your initial transaction needs. We call that ‘Banking & Beyond’ and have recently kicked off a 2019 year-long marketing campaign with ads and media designed to create awareness. Pieces in the ‘Banking & Beyond’ campaign include TV, radio, online ads, magazine and other print ads, and website enhancements. We want to make it easy to do business with us in person, by phone, email or online. Your satisfaction with our ability to meet your ongoing financial needs is most important!

We are excited to announce our new Kasasa checking products which are available to you now! Silver Lake Bank is partnering with Kasasa to offer a competitive rewards based consumer checking account. The product offerings include: Kasasa Cash (get paid a high rate of interest), Kasasa Cash Back (earn cash back on debit card purchases), and Kasasa Tunes (get iTunes, Google Play, or credit each month). For each of these products, the monthly qualifying criteria is to receive e-statements, have at least 12 debit card purchase transactions and at least one direct deposit or ACH debit.
