Overview

Founded in 1960, Ponce Bank has $924 million in assets and deposits totaling $753 million, making it a medium-size bank. Ponce Bank, whose headquarters are in Bronx, New York, lacks premium access to support representatives, 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 offerings. We ranked the bank at a 4.3 stars out of 5, indicating that Ponce Bank is a solid pick to be your bank. Ponce Bank provides customers with a full selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Institutions that offer free checking as well as a high savings APY are your best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
