Overview

Started in 1917, Solvay Bank has assets totaling $867 million along with deposits totaling $764 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Solvay Bank, whose headquarters are in Solvay, New York, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave the bank a 4.2 out of 5 stars, suggesting Solvay Bank is a solid pick to be your bank. Solvay Bank has the complete package of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Solvay Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are the best option for gaining the highest income from your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

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 the national average.
