Overview

Founded in 1889, Mutual Bank has $511 million in assets along with deposits totaling $414 million, classifying the institution as a medium-size bank. Mutual Bank, whose headquarters are in Whitman, Massachusetts, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked the bank at a 4.2 stars out of 5, which means Mutual Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider. Mutual Bank has a varied selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Mutual Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.

Mutual Bank charges its customers extremely low fees in comparison to the national average. With no monthly fee, Mutual Bank's checking account is ideal for people who need a hassle-free checking account. For those who regularly visit the ATM, it is perfect because it has no out-of-network ATM fees. Mutual Bank doesn't refund out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll be required to search for a Mutual Bank ATM or accept the withdrawal fee.
