Overview

Citizens Community Bank first started operating in 1992 with headquarters in Mascoutah, Illinois. It owns assets of $380 million along with deposits totaling $327 million, which makes it a small bank. Citizens Community Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4 stars out of 5, Citizens Community Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Citizens Community Bank offers an array product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and mortgage products. Citizens Community Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product has a $6.00 monthly fee, which ranks on the higher end of monthly fees. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.

Citizens Community Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look 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. Citizens Community Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
