SmartAsset has rated Legence Bank 4.2 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Legence Bank offers a varied selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Legence Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee.

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Legence Bank charges customers extremely low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. Legence Bank's checking account has no monthly fee, making it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is solid because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.00, which is good in comparison to other U.S. banks. Additionally, Legence Bank has an overdraft fee of $29.65, which is considerably less than that of other U.S. banks. Legence Bank unfortunately doesn't refund out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you will have to locate a Legence Bank ATM or accept the withdrawal fee.
