Overview

Started in 1998, Resource Bank has $688 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $534 million, making it a medium-size bank. Resource Bank, whose headquarters are in Covington, Louisiana, lacks premium access to customer service, 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 offerings. SmartAsset experts rated Resource Bank 4.5 stars out of 5, indicating that it is an outstanding bank that you should seriously consider. Resource Bank offers a variety of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Resource Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Using an institution with no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY is the best option for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.
