Overview

First Community Bank was founded in 1983 with headquarters in Corpus Christi, Texas. First Community Bank owns assets of $445 million along with deposits totaling $399 million, making it a medium-size bank. First Community Bank 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 offerings. At a SmartAsset rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars, First Community Bank should be more closely inspected to see if its services match your needs. First Community Bank provides customers with a varied choice of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for returning the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

First Community Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
