State Savings Bank

About Us

Small-town service since 1894.

State Savings Bank has been working as a community bank in Baxter, Iowa, since 1894. Starting primarily as an Agricultural Bank, we have evolved to be an active leader in the Polk, Jasper and surrounding areas. We pride ourselves in our Commercial, Residential, Consumer, and of course, Agricultural lending.

State Savings Bank treats customers like they're our neighbors - because they are. We've grown from our rural Iowa roots, but we're still a bank you'll feel good about. When you come to our office you'll find the welcome is warm, the coffee is hot, and the care is genuine. We're both banking advisors and business connectors to the families and businesses in the communities we serve. You'll see signs of our support in both local schools and business groups.

As a state chartered bank, State Savings Bank is strong and growing. We are continually investigating new locations, new services and new ways to serve you better. We are proud to be part of growing communities, and plan to grow with you. Stop by one of our locations today to experience the State Savings Bank difference.

Our Mission Statement

You are our most valued asset. We commit our resources to help you build wealth.

  • You:  Individuals with whom State Savings Bank establishes relationships and conducts business
  • We:  Our board of directors, officers and employees
  • Our Resources:  Skilled and caring employees, product knowledge, business experience, lending capacity, products, services, and time
  • Build Wealth:  The process of increasing your financial assets by having the right information, planning and making good choices


Our mission begins with you. After all, without you, there would be no we. Safety, timeliness, fairness and trust are essential as are quality financial products and services. We believe those things are important and describe how we do business.  But our mission statement is less about "us" and "how" and more about "you" and "what." Whether you have a little or a lot, our mission is the same for everyone— helping you build wealth. Fifteen words and a few key definitions that describe why we come to work each day.
