Countybank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Countybank 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. Countybank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
