Overview

CUSB Bank first started operating in 1888 with headquarters in Cresco, Iowa. CUSB Bank handles assets of $483 million as well as deposits totaling $404 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. CUSB Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional 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 3.8 out of 5 stars, CUSB Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. CUSB Bank offers a choice of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, CUSB Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is your best option for gaining the most income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

CUSB Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options 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. CUSB Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
