South Shore Bank shares a long history with the South Shore region of Massachusetts. Although the name South Shore Bank began in 1997 with the merger of Weymouth Savings Bank and South Weymouth Savings Bank, we were originally chartered by the General and Honorable Court of the Commonwealth in 1833 as the Weymouth and Braintree Institution for Savings. We have a proud heritage of commitment to the communities we serve as a South Shore Massachusetts Bank.
We are a full service mutual savings bank with 16 locations in Massachusetts, located in eight communities throughout the South Shore. As a mutual savings bank, our duty is to serve our customers. We are locally managed and dedicated to the needs of the community rather than the demands of investors.
As a regional banking leader, it is our mission to meet the needs of our customers. We do this by offering a variety of both traditional and innovative financial products for your personal and business banking needs. We are consistently developing our technology products to ensure our customers are provided with the convenient services they’ve grown to expect.
All deposits at South Shore Bank are insured in full. Each depositor is insured by Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to at least $250,000. All deposits above the FDIC insurance amount are insured by Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF).
