Overview

Established in 1879, Heritage Bank USA has $916 million in assets and $755 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Heritage Bank USA, whose headquarters are in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked Heritage Bank USA at a 3.6 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more. Heritage Bank USA offers a selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Heritage Bank USA has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking product features a monthly fee of $6.00, making it a rather pricey bank for checking. Using an institution with no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY is your best option for getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
