Overview

Kearny Bank was founded in 1884 with headquarters in Kearny, New Jersey. It has $5 billion in assets along with deposits totaling $3 billion, ranking it as a large bank. Kearny Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. SmartAsset has rated the bank 4.3 out of 5 stars, which means Kearny Bank is a solid pick to be your bank. Kearny Bank has a varied selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Kearny Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Kearny Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Using a bank with no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY is the best option for returning the highest income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.
