Overview

Founded in 1985, Presidential Bank has $559 million in assets along with $491 million in deposits, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. Presidential Bank, whose headquarters are in Bethesda, Maryland, 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at a commendable 4.2 stars out of 5, Presidential Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Presidential Bank has the complete selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account features a $100.00 monthly fee, making it a rather expensive bank for checking. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are the best option for returning the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.

Presidential Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
