Overview

First Bank Kansas started in 1955 and its headquarters are located in Salina, Kansas. It handles assets of $439 million as well as deposits totaling $396 million, classifying it as a medium-size bank. First Bank Kansas 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked the bank at a 4 out of 5 stars, indicating that First Bank Kansas is a respectable bank that you should consider. First Bank Kansas has the full slate of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account has a $3.00 monthly fee, which is acceptable in comparison to other U.S. banks. Institutions that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best bet for returning the highest income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.
