About Us

Because the place you call home is our home too.

This is more than where we work. It's where we live. And, as active members of our communities, we’re truly invested in clients like you—delivering simple, straightforward banking solutions to help you make the most of your money.

Over 200 offices to serve you.

From checking, savings and retirement accounts to home loan and corporate real estate financing, Washington Federal is ready to help bring clarity to banking. We operate in eight western states, including Washington, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah and New Mexico.

Our common-sense, disciplined approach has stood the test of time and made us one of the strongest financial institutions in America.

Our story is simple. Just like our approach to banking.

It all started back in 1917. A group of local businessmen established Ballard Savings and Loan Association in a fishing and lumber community just north of Seattle, Washington.

Nearly a century later, we continue to provide one-on-one, friendly and professional service. No phone trees. No jumping through hoops. Just the personal attention and customized expert advice you deserve.

Helping neighborhoods flourish.

We believe in supporting our communities. That’s why we created the Washington Federal Foundation—to facilitate giving to local nonprofits that serve the needs of low- and moderate-income individuals. For more information, see our Community Relations page.

Our thanks to Washington Federal.

Over the past two months my wife and I have set up several new accounts with your bank. Each of our visits to your establishment has been a pleasurable experience. Washington Federal appears to be a bank dedicated to customer service.
