Overview

OneUnited Bank first started operating in 1982 with its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. It owns $658 million in assets as well as $373 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. OneUnited 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. SmartAsset has rated OneUnited Bank 4.3 stars out of 5, indicating that it is a solid contender in your bank search. OneUnited Bank provides customers with a basic array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. OneUnited Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, OneUnited Bank's most basic checking does not carry a monthly charge. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are your best option for returning the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.
