Overview

Country Bank started in 1988 and has its headquarters in New York, New York. It handles $686 million in assets along with $573 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Country 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at an average 3.8 out of 5 stars, Country Bank proves it is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more. Country Bank provides customers with a mixture of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and IRAs. Country Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product features a $3.00 monthly fee, which is acceptable compared to other U.S. banks. Finding a bank with no-fee checking and a high savings APY is the best option for accruing the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

Country 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. Country Bank's CD rates are fair as compared against the national average.
