Overview

PCSB Bank was founded in 1871 with headquarters located in Brewster, New York. PCSB Bank handles $1 billion in assets along with $1 billion in deposits, which makes it a large bank. PCSB Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. SmartAsset has rated PCSB Bank 3.8 out of 5 stars, which means it is a decent choice, but with better options out there. PCSB Bank provides customers with a diverse array of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, PCSB Bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly fee. Using an institution with free checking as well as a high interest rate savings account is your best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
