Overview

Southside Bank started in 1960 and its headquarters are located in Tyler, Texas. It handles assets of $6 billion as well as $5 billion in deposits, making it a large bank. Southside Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. With a commendable 4.4 stars out of 5, Southside Bank proves it is a solid contender in your bank search. Southside Bank has the full slate of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. Southside Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's most basic checking account does not have a monthly charge. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best option for getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
