Overview

Started in 1983, First Community Bank has $445 million in assets along with $399 million in deposits, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. First Community Bank, whose headquarters are in Corpus Christi, Texas, lacks premium access to support representatives, 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 3.4 stars out of 5, First Community Bank should be more closely analyzed to see if its services match your needs. First Community Bank provides customers with a varied selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. First Community Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is your best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

First Community Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. First Community Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. First Community Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
