At Security State Bank we believe that individuals and our community as a whole can experience financial freedom through financial education. We begin with the youngest of our community through the Million Dollar Kids Club savings incentives, Teach Children to Save presentations in our elementary schools, and Get Smart About Credit presentations in our high school. Through these beginnings we hope to influence change for the positive in our community. To that end we’ve provided the resources below to assist adults in their pursuit of financial education and resources to gain financial freedom.
