The Heritage Bank, whose headquarters are in Hinesville, Georgia, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With a score of 3.8 stars out of 5, The Heritage Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. The Heritage Bank provides customers with a mixture of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards.
