Overview

Eureka Savings Bank was founded in 1885 with headquarters in La Salle, Illinois. Eureka Savings Bank manages $341 million in assets along with $263 million in deposits, ranking it as a small bank. Eureka Savings Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 out of 5 stars, Eureka Savings Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Eureka Savings Bank provides customers with a full array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Eureka Savings Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Eureka Savings Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding an institution with free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is your best bet for gaining the most income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.
