According to its financial sheet, the banking company set aside $300,000 for loan losses, a decrease from $2.3 million a year ago.

Total assets at the end of the quarter were $904.2 million, compared to $924.64 million at the end of March. Total deposits also decreased, to $687.2 million at the end of September from $696.2 million at the end of March.

Security Federal Bank has 13 branch locations in South Carolina and Georgia.
