Overview

Legends Bank was founded in 1913 and its headquarters are located in Linn, Missouri. It handles $350 million in assets and deposits totaling $298 million, which makes it a small bank. Legends Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. On the whole, Legends Bank is a solid pick to be your bank, with a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars from our team. Legends Bank offers numerous product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Legends Bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best option for accruing the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.

Legends Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options 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. Legends Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the average U.S. bank.
