For the 96th consecutive quarter, Home Federal Bank has earned the BauerFinancial Five-Star stability rating, the highest possible rating. This 5-star rating is shared by fewer than 10 percent of the country’s banks.
“We’re proud to offer stability, security and a full range of banking services to East Tennessee families and businesses,” Home Federal Bank Chairman and CEO Dale Keasling said. “The BauerFinancial 5-Star Superior rating is an indicator to our customers that their bank is strong and stable.”
