Overview

BankLiberty first started operating in 1955 with its headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. It manages $458 million in assets along with $368 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. BankLiberty lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at a commendable 4 out of 5 stars, BankLiberty proves it is a respectable bank that deserves your consideration. BankLiberty has a varied selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, BankLiberty's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are your best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your funds.

BankLiberty offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. BankLiberty does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking elsewhere 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. BankLiberty's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
