Overview

Marine Bank first started operating in 1970 with its headquarters in Springfield, Illinois. It manages assets of $641 million as well as deposits totaling $544 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Marine Bank has above-average access to customer service with a live chat feature, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.1 stars out of 5, Marine Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Marine Bank provides customers with a mixture of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Marine Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Locating an institution with no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY is your best bet for returning the highest income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.
