Overview

BancCentral started in 1913 and has its headquarters in Alva, Oklahoma. BancCentral manages $491 million in assets and deposits totaling $445 million, making it a medium-size bank. BancCentral lacks premium access to support representatives, 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, BancCentral should be near the top of your list for your bank search. BancCentral offers a complete array of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. BancCentral has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are your best bet for gaining the highest income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

BancCentral has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. BancCentral does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. BancCentral's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
