Overview

Midwest Bank first started operating in 1917 and its headquarters are located in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. It has $408 million in assets and deposits totaling $358 million, which makes it a small bank. Midwest Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.4 stars out of 5, Midwest Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider. Midwest Bank provides customers with a diverse array 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. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly maintenance charge. Institutions that offer free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for gaining the highest income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.
