Overview

Presidential Bank first started operating in 1985 and has its headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland. Presidential Bank has assets of $559 million along with $491 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Presidential Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars, Presidential Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Presidential Bank has a full suite of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Presidential Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account maintains a monthly fee of $100.00, making it a rather pricey bank for checking. Banks that offer free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are your best option for gaining the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

Presidential Bank charges customers average fees as compared against the national average. At $100.00/month, Presidential Bank's checking account is less than great for those who need an easy banking experience. For those who will need cash in a pinch, Presidential Bank is perfect because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. Also, Presidential Bank has an overdraft fee of $25.00, which is considerably lower than that of other U.S. banks. Presidential Bank unfortunately doesn't refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll have to search for a Presidential Bank ATM or pay the fee.
