Banks define customers as those who "bank" with them by a customer's primary checking account. We want to be your bank. That's why we don’t have the monthly account fees and those hidden charges you might find elsewhere. Our accounts are easy to open and easy to understand; while also including the best in mobile conveniences and private banking services.
We hate fees as much as you do
You shouldn't have to pay to access your own money.

We're members of your community, and ready to help you, our neighbors.
We've taken a simplified approach to personal checking with only one account: NB Checking. It has no account fees, pays interest, and reimburses every ATM fee worldwide; essentially making every ATM a Needham Bank ATM.
Whether you’re a seasoned saver, just getting started, or anywhere in between, we have the products and interest rates to meet your need. As an added layer of comfort, please rest assured that every dollar deposited at Needham Bank is insured in full, even for relationships well above the FDIC insurance limit of $250,000.
As a mutual bank, we’re able (and willing) to pay higher rates on deposit accounts and relationships than the publicly traded national-big banks. In fact, our deposit rates are on average 3x higher than the national average according to a recent FDIC rate survey. And unlike those national goliaths, every dollar at Needham Bank is insured in full.
NB Mobile and Online
With NB Mobile and Online Banking you’re empowered with the tools to manage your finances at anytime from anywhere. We’ve designed NB Mobile to be a true workhorse and are constantly investing in the capabilities as well as customer experience to ensure you have every piece of banking e-convenience available.
We are always looking for unique ways to help our customers improve and maintain their financial health, and as such, we are proud to introduce our suite of Consumer Lending products.
In addition to our Personal and Auto Loans, we have partnered with an award winning finance company, CommonBond, to provide student lending options. Whether you’re looking to fund your education or seeking to refinance an existing student loan, we have a partnership program which can result in significant savings compared to other lending alternatives.
