Our Mission

Neighbors helping neighbors—it’s that simple.

Strength And Stability With Liberty Bank

When you put the community first, everything works out.

This small yet powerful piece of wisdom is the foundation of everything we do. Community is the reason the members of Chicago’s North Side banded together to form what would become Liberty Bank – and it’s how we’ve weathered the last century.

It’s also why BauerFinancial has given us a 5-star rating for the last 35 years and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) honored us with a 2022 BBB Torch Award for Ethics.  Our commitment to our neighbors and to one another gives us strength through the good times and the bad.

What Does Mutuality Mean?

Mutuality means we answer to you, and only you. No corporate owners, no stockholders. As a mutual bank association we are committed to returning profits to our shareholders — that’s you — in the form of higher savings and lower mortgage rates.

Serving The Community For Over 125 Years

In 1898, members of a neighborhood church pooled resources to finance home purchases for each other. Then, they formed a building and loan association that became Liberty Bank for Savings.

We helped to build families’ financial health and shape Chicago neighborhoods.

And we still do today.
