Overview

Our Rating: 3.7/5 How we calculated this rating

Started in 1920, Evans Bank has assets totaling $1 billion and deposits totaling $1 billion, ranking the institution as a medium-size bank. Evans Bank, whose headquarters are in Angola, New York, has above-average access to customer service with a live chat feature, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank, which means easier access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile presence. On the whole, Evans Bank is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more with a rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset team. 

Evans Bank provides customers with the complete slate of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate, which means you can find higher rates with other banks. A great, everyday account, Evans Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Why use checking and savings accounts with one bank? Quick transferring between the two accounts translates to higher interest rates in your savings account with the ability to spend from your checking.
