Your Local Bank Since 1877

Customers who choose Piscataqua Savings Bank believe in banking locally, with an institution that’s not just built on a foundation of financial strength, but committed to its community. That’s who we are and always have been.

In 1878, our founders set out to create a mutual savings bank that would serve the needs of the city’s merchants and homeowners, and today, over one hundred years later, we’re proud to be doing that in the kindest, most ethical way we can.

What our customers are saying

Kind Words

  • Kristin

    I enjoyed the entire process from walking into the beautiful foyer it was so warm, welcoming, and efficient. My Customer Service Rep. was wonderful. Sorry I didn’t join sooner.

  • David

    I love Piscataqua Savings! I loved it in the late 80’s when I first moved here and again in 2013, when we moved back. You all made it so easy for us!! Paul is a top notch human being and expert. I was so happy with his kindness & competence.

  • Richard

    I had the best possible experience working with Paul at Piscataqua Savings Bank in acquiring a loan to purchase our home here in Portsmouth NH. The entire team at PSB is smart, efficient, and courteous.

  • Matt

    I’ve always had a good experience banking here. Everyone is very nice and helpful. Easy to recommend – a lot better than the big banks.

  • Raymond

    Piscataqua Savings Bank is everything you remember or everything you would envision a bank to be. Everyone is polite, professional, and they know your name. You are not a number here. The bank has every product you need, but nobody is trying to sell you. You are greeted by every employee with a smile and hello. Everyone is always available to help and give you advice. It’s banking the way it used to be and should still be today.

  • Stephen

    Many years ago, we found ourselves in a difficult house buying experience and we thought we were about to lose our dream house, because of bad timing and a temporary lack of funds. I fretted for an entire weekend, but when I showed up on Monday morning, everyone assured us that this would not happen on their watch. We were eternally grateful to have a local bank as partners in this venture. We were elated and knew we were protected from the many problems associated with getting a mortgage. I can’t say enough positives about Piscataqua Savings!

  • Kathleen

    Our Loan Officer was exceptionally kind and patient with me. She explained each part and step thoroughly. She also listened to me. The bank I had been doing business with for the past 22 years was not as helpful as Piscataqua. I couldn’t be more pleased.
