Overview

Established in 1876, Shore United Bank has assets totaling $1 billion and $1 billion in deposits, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Shore United Bank, whose headquarters are in Easton, Maryland, 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 apps. We gave the bank a 4.2 out of 5 stars, indicating that Shore United Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Shore United Bank has a varied selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Shore United Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is your best option for gaining the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.
