Overview

Kentucky Bank first started operating in 1915 with its headquarters in Paris, Kentucky. It owns assets of $1 billion as well as $819 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Kentucky Bank lacks premium access to customer service, 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. With a score of 3.9 out of 5 stars, Kentucky Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Kentucky Bank provides customers with a complete array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. Kentucky Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking account features a $4.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY are your best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
