Overview

Legence Bank was founded in 1906 and its headquarters are located in Eldorado, Illinois. It handles $466 million in assets and $412 million in deposits, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Legence 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.2 stars out of 5, Legence Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Legence Bank offers a complete selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Legence Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Legence Bank's most basic checking does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best bet for gaining the most income on your deposits alongside easy access to your funds.

Fees

4.7
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Legence Bank generally has extremely low fees compared to the national average. With no monthly fee, Legence Bank is ideal for people who want a simple checking account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, Legence Bank is good because it charges an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.00, which is solid as compared against the national average. Also, Legence Bank has an overdraft fee of $29.65, which is significantly less than the average overdraft fee charged by U.S. banks. Legence Bank unfortunately doesn't refund out-of-network ATM fees, which means you will be required to locate a Legence Bank ATM or accept the withdrawal fee.

Legence Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Legence Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Legence Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
