Security Bank, whose headquarters are in Midland, Texas, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, Security Bank is a satisfactory bank that might not serve all your needs, with a score of 3.1 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Security Bank offers numerous product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. Security Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates.

Security Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Security Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider 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. Security Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the average U.S. bank.
