Overview

National Cooperative Bank started in 1988 and its headquarters are located in Hillsboro, Ohio. National Cooperative Bank manages assets of $2 billion and $2 billion in deposits, ranking it as a large bank. National Cooperative Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. SmartAsset has rated the bank 4.3 out of 5 stars, indicating that National Cooperative Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. National Cooperative Bank provides customers with a full suite of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. National Cooperative Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, National Cooperative Bank's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly charge. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is the best option for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
