Resource Bank started in 1901 and its headquarters are located in Dekalb, Illinois. It owns $459 million in assets as well as $416 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Resource Bank 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. With a score of 4.3 stars out of 5, Resource Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Resource Bank provides customers with a complete selection of product offerings, 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. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Resource Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best option for gaining the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

Resource Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Resource Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
