Overview

Patriot Bank first started operating in 1994 with headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. It handles $852 million in assets and $643 million in deposits, which makes it a medium-size bank. Patriot Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars, Patriot Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Patriot Bank provides customers with a varied choice of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking product maintains 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, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Fees

3.9
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Patriot Bank generally has above-average fees compared to the national average. At $5.00/month, Patriot Bank is not great for people who want a basic banking experience. For those who use cash often, it is ideal because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. Additionally, at $36.00, Patriot Bank has a slightly greater overdraft fee compared to the average U.S. overdraft fee. Patriot Bank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you will have to search for a Patriot Bank ATM or eat the fee.

Monthly Fee $5.00 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee $36.00 National Average: $35.00

Patriot 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. Patriot Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options 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. Patriot Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
