Overview

Patriot Bank was founded in 1994 with headquarters located in Stamford, Connecticut. It has assets of $852 million along with deposits totaling $643 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Patriot 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. SmartAsset has rated Patriot Bank 3.9 stars out of 5, which means it is a respectable bank that you should consider. Patriot Bank provides customers with a complete choice of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product carries a $5.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best bet for accruing the most income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Patriot Bank unfortunately doesn't refund out-of-network ATM fees, which means you will be required to find a Patriot Bank ATM or eat the ATM charge.
