SSB's staff is here to help with all your banking needs. As a longstanding, local business in the Pittsburgh area, we have continued to prove our dedication and investment to the city of Pittsburgh. Unlike some of the national competitors, like Bank of America and Chase Bank, that continue to pop up throughout the city, our local roots make us more knowledgeable about the true needs of our customers.
