Overview

Community Savings Bank was founded in 1925 with headquarters located in Chicago, Illinois. Community Savings Bank owns $402 million in assets along with deposits totaling $338 million, classifying it as a small bank. Community Savings Bank lacks premium access to customer service, 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 offerings. On the whole, Community Savings Bank is a good bank that gets the job done, with a score of 3.9 out of 5 stars from our experts. Community Savings Bank provides customers with a full array 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. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Locating a bank with no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.
