Overview

Founded in 1917, Solvay Bank has $867 million in assets and deposits totaling $764 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Solvay Bank, whose headquarters are in Solvay, New York, lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked Solvay Bank at a 4.2 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is a solid pick to be your bank. Solvay Bank offers a mixture of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Solvay Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Solvay Bank's most basic checking does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.

Solvay Bank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll need to search for a Solvay Bank ATM or accept the ATM charge.

Solvay Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Solvay 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. Solvay Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
