"There are a million reasons why I bank with Ossian State Bank but I will tell you a few. It started with the guidance of my father, there was just simply no better option than Ossian State Bank for us. That guidance was carried on by employees in the bank always seeking my best interest and what could they do for me. I was told to get to know the bank, always keep my word and it would do the same for me, and it did. Relationships; another reason to bank with OSB. I started with a child savings account and my relationship has grown over the years from auto loans to mortgage and commercials loans. Relationships are not just business and banking but caring about the individual and I feel that OSB goes above and beyond the call. Life is a journey and OSB has been with me every step of the way."
