Overview

F&M Bank first started operating in 1906 with its headquarters in Clarksville, Tennessee. It handles assets of $1 billion along with deposits totaling $825 million, classifying it as a medium-size bank. F&M Bank 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, F&M Bank is a good bank that deserves your consideration, with a score of 3.9 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset experts. F&M Bank offers a variety of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, F&M Bank's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best option for returning the highest income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

Fees

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

F&M Bank has typically above-average fees in comparison to the national average. With no monthly fee, F&M Bank is ideal for those who want a simple checking account. For those who often frequent the ATM, it is fair because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.50, which is reasonable in comparison to the average U.S. bank. Additionally, F&M Bank has an overdraft fee of $37.00, which is significantly steeper than the national average. F&M Bank unfortunately does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, which means you'll need to find an F&M Bank ATM or pay the ATM charge.
