Overview

Mutual Bank first started operating in 1889 with headquarters in Whitman, Massachusetts. Mutual Bank manages $511 million in assets along with deposits totaling $414 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Mutual Bank 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. On the whole, Mutual Bank is a solid pick to be your bank, with a score of 4.2 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Mutual Bank offers a complete suite of product offerings, which include 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 looking for a checking account for everyday use, Mutual Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for returning the highest income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.

Fees

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

On average, Mutual Bank charges its customers extremely low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, Mutual Bank's checking account is perfect for those who need an easy banking experience. For those who frequent the ATM, it is ideal because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. Mutual Bank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you'll have to locate a Mutual Bank ATM or eat the fee.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

Mutual Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Mutual 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. Mutual Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
