                      FOX CHASE BANCORP ANNOUNCES EARNINGS
                FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2009

HATBORO, PA, JULY 30, 2009 - Fox Chase Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ GM:
FXCB), the holding company for Fox Chase Bank (the "Bank"), today announced net
income of $298,000 and $899,000 for the three and six months ended June 30,
2009, respectively, compared to net income of $304,000 and $649,000 for the
three and six months ended June 30, 2008, respectively.

Net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 was impacted by: (1)
a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation special assessment of $536,000 (after
tax $354,000); (2) an other than temporary impairment charge on the Bank's only
private label residential mortgage related security of $157,000 (after tax
$104,000); and (3) a reduced valuation allowance on the Bank's mortgage
servicing rights of $99,000 (after tax $66,000) that positively impacted
noninterest income.

Net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 was impacted by
expenses of $244,000 and $297,000, respectively (after tax $161,000 and
$196,000, respectively), associated with final distributions from the Company's
terminated pension plan.

Highlights for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009 included:
o     Net interest income increased $300,000, or 5.8%, to $5.4 million for
      the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $5.1 million for the
      three months ended June 30, 2008 and increased $1.1 million, or 11.6%, to
      $11.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 from $10.1 million
      for the same period in 2008;

o     Net interest income  decreased  $360,000 for the three months ended June
      30,  2009,  compared  to the three  months  ended March 31, 2009 and net
      interest  margin  decreased to 1.93% for the three months ended June 30,
      2009  from  2.45% for the  three  months  ended  March  31,  2009.  This
      decrease  was  primarily  the  result  of:  (1) the Bank  maintaining  a
      significant  portion of its increased  deposits in  short-term  cash and
      cash  equivalents;  and (2) a reduction in yield on the Bank's  mortgage
      related securities  portfolio  resulting from a significant  increase in
      mortgage related prepayments during the quarter;

o     Gain on the sale of securities was $588,000 for each of the three and six
      months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $48,000 and $118,000,
      respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008;

o     Total assets were $1.17 billion at June 30, 2009, an increase of $238
      million, or 25.6% from December 31, 2008;

o     Deposits totaled $845 million at June 30, 2009, representing an increase
      of $236 million, or 38.8%, from December 31, 2008; and

o     Nonperforming loans increased to $7.7 million, or 1.22% of gross loans, at
      June 30, 2009 from $5.9 million, or 0.98% of gross loans, at December 31,
      2008. The increase occurred in both the Bank's commercial and residential
      mortgage portfolios.

Thomas M. Petro, President and CEO said, "In this challenging economic
environment, Fox Chase Bancorp continues to execute a two-fold strategy of
managing risks within its credit portfolio while positioning itself to take
advantage of a future economic recovery. Because credit conditions in our market
area continue to show substantial softness, we are devoting substantial
resources to risk mitigation efforts. At the same time we expanded our
commercial lending capability during the quarter by adding a team of seasoned
middle market lenders. The Bank is well positioned to weather the economic
downturn and eventual recovery with significant capital and liquidity and is
having great success in growing core deposits." The Company recorded provisions

for loan losses of $567,000 and $962,000 for the three and six months ended June
30, 2009, respectively, and $225,000 and $400,000 for the three and six months
ended June 30, 2008, respectively. The increase in the provision reflected loan
growth, primarily in commercial categories, and the increase in nonperforming
assets and internally classified loans in both the residential and commercial
loan portfolios. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2009 was 1.12% of
total loans outstanding at June 30, 2009, compared to 1.05% of total loans
outstanding at December 31, 2008.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, the Company repurchased
177,550 and 266,589 shares of its common stock, respectively, pursuant to
previously announced stock repurchase programs. There are 101,220 shares
remaining to be repurchased under the Company's July 2008 program and 327,000
shares available to be repurchased under the Company's May 2009 program. The
timing and volume of future purchases will depend on market conditions and other
factors. Repurchased shares will be held in treasury.
