Overview

Legends Bank was founded in 1913 with headquarters located in Linn, Missouri. Legends Bank owns assets of $350 million as well as deposits totaling $298 million, classifying it as a small bank. Legends Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, 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 out of 5 stars, Legends Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Legends Bank has a diversity of 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 offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Locating a bank with no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY is the best option for returning the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.
