Why Bank? CREDIT UNION! Okay, so I work at GE Credit Union so I must say GE CREDIT UNION!

I volunteer for a number of local NPOs and I can say that the Milford Bank by the law's of its charter gives its profits to local charities. They have been most generous to the organizations here in town, so I prefer to do my personal business there.

Milford Bank is definitely the best, the most community-minded of them all. Just think of all the local events they sponsor and the jobs they have created by building several new banks in the last few years. Their services are wonderful and so are the people who work there. Milford Bank is not owned by some huge faceless corporation just trying to squeeze out every conceivable fee for service. They are here to serve our community, not to make a fortune for a CEO who lives in some distant city.

I used to work for a credit union & we were told that banks were not as good. When I left I opened an account with Milford Bank & I love them. They have great hours, pleasant staff & support the people & events in Milford. I would never go anywhere else now!
