Overview

Our Rating: 4.1/5 How we calculated this rating

Established in 1967, River Valley Bank has assets totaling $1 billion along with deposits totaling $1 billion, classifying it as a medium-size bank. River Valley Bank, whose headquarters are in Wausau, Wisconsin, does not have the customer service bells and whistles of other banks. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank, which means easier access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile presence. With a score of 4.1 out of 5 stars, River Valley Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. 

River Valley Bank has a full array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. River Valley Bank has a fair savings rate, which means you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking account features a monthly fee of $5.00, which is acceptable compared to the national average. Why use checking and savings accounts with one bank? Fast transferring between both accounts means you can still get better interest rates in your savings account but still spend your money from your checking.

Service Quality

River Valley Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 18 total branches in Michigan and Wisconsin. It also offers access to mobile and web apps for a simple mobile-banking experience. It does not have all-day customer service with actual service representatives. You can get help during its customer service hours, which are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. CT; Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT; Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT. 

River Valley Bank gets high praise from users for its online presence: the River Valley Bank mobile app is rated at 4.3 out of 5 (with 26 ratings on Apple and Android) compared to the national average of 3.8. You can utilize River Valley Bank's app to control your accounts by monitoring monthly statements, transferring funds and accessing support representatives. River Valley Bank gets an outstanding consumer satisfaction rating due to relatively few complaints filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government financial agency that protects consumers in the financial sector.
