Overview

Community Bank was founded in 1866 and has its headquarters in Canton, New York. It manages assets of $11 billion along with $9 billion in deposits, making it a large bank. Community Bank 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Overall, Community Bank is a respectable bank that gets the job done, with a rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset experts. Community Bank offers a full selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Community Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Finding 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 getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

Community Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Community Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider 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. Community Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
