Federal Savings Bank to Offer Student Loans From New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO)

Concord, N.H. — Federal Savings Bank (FSB) headquartered in Dover, New Hampshire, and the nonprofit New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO), provider of the EDvestinU® student loan program, have partnered to provide student loans to Federal Savings Bank customers.

Federal Savings Bank is one of the oldest community banks in the region, serving individuals, business customers and nonprofits with a range of deposit, investment, and loan products and services. Founded in 1890, FSB has branch locations in Dover, Durham, Barrington, Portsmouth, and Rochester.

"Part of our mission at Federal Savings Bank is to positively impact the communities we serve and our partnership with NHHELCO is simply another way in which we fulfill that mission," said Chantal Upton, FSB Vice President of Sales and Training. "While we are proud of our 128-year history, we are even more proud of our commitment to providing new products, services and technologies that only enhance the banking experience for our customers," she added.

Offering private student loans and student loan refinancing, NHHELCO’s EDvestinU® loan programs provide FSB customers access to student loans with competitive interest rates and discount programs, as well as scholarship opportunities.

"We are excited to announce this partnership with Federal Savings Bank," states Rich Neilsen, EDvestinU Loan Program Manager. "As community lenders, both of our organizations are committed to serve our state’s college-bound students and graduates with responsible financing options."

The EDvestinU Lending Institution Referral program is a turn-key solution for New Hampshire lending institutions to offer private student loans and consolidation loans from a local, capable, and trusted education lender. Federal Savings Bank joins Profile Bank and St. Mary’s Bank as the first lenders to participate in this program.
