Overview

Founded in 1928, Security Bank has assets totaling $788 million as well as $673 million in deposits, making the institution a medium-size bank. Security Bank, whose headquarters are in Midland, Texas, 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. With a poor 3.1 stars out of 5, Security Bank proves it is a lower-rated bank that might not serve all your needs. Security Bank offers a diversity of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is the best bet for accruing the most income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Security Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Security Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider other options 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 compared to the average U.S. bank.
