1. Overview 2. How We Rated It 3. Products Offered 4. Branch Locations


Founded in 1890, BankOrion has $442 million in assets as well as $369 million in deposits, which makes it a medium-size bank. BankOrion, whose headquarters are in Orion, Illinois, lacks premium access to support representatives, 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. With a score of 4.2 out of 5 stars, BankOrion should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. BankOrion offers a mixture of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

BankOrion 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. BankOrion's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
