Overview

FCB Banks started in 1990 and its headquarters are located in Collinsville, Illinois. It manages assets of $1 billion as well as $1 billion in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. FCB Banks lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. SmartAsset has rated FCB Banks 4.4 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. FCB Banks has a full suite of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. FCB Banks has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, FCB Banks's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding an institution with no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY is the best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

FCB Banks charges its customers extremely low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. Its checking account has no monthly fee, rating it excellent for anyone looking for a hassle-free account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, FCB Banks is ideal because it has no out-of-network ATM fees. FCB Banks unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll need to locate a FCB Banks ATM or eat the fee.
