Overview

Started in 1868, Rondout Savings Bank has assets totaling $351 million along with $298 million in deposits, classifying it as a small bank. Rondout Savings Bank, whose headquarters are in Kingston, New York, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With a score of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Rondout Savings Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Rondout Savings Bank provides customers with a complete suite of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Rondout Savings Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Rondout Savings Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.
