Overview

FCB Banks started in 1990 with its headquarters in Collinsville, Illinois. FCB Banks manages $1 billion in assets as well as deposits totaling $1 billion, ranking it as a medium-size bank. FCB Banks lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. We ranked FCB Banks at a 4.4 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. FCB Banks offers a complete suite 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; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly fee. Finding a bank with free checking and a high savings APY is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.

FCB Banks charges customers extremely low fees compared to other U.S. banks. FCB Banks's checking account has no monthly fee, rating it excellent for anyone looking for a hassle-free account. For those who often visit the ATM, it is perfect because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. FCB Banks does not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll have to find a FCB Banks ATM or pay the ATM charge.
