Overview

Started in 2007, Level One Bank has assets totaling $1 billion as well as deposits totaling $1 billion, making it a medium-size bank. Level One Bank, whose headquarters are in Farmington Hills, Michigan, has above-average customer service access with a live chat feature, great for getting help during the work week. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With an average 3.9 stars out of 5, Level One Bank proves it is a good bank that should be given a look. Level One Bank has the full slate of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking account has a $5.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is the best bet for returning the most income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Level One Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Level One Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look 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. Level One Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
