Overview

Standard Bank first started operating in 1921 and its headquarters are located in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. It handles assets of $970 million as well as deposits totaling $697 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Standard Bank 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With a score of 3.9 out of 5 stars, Standard Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Standard Bank has a full array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Finding an institution with free checking, in addition to a high savings APY is the best option for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.

Fees

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Standard Bank typically has average fees compared to other U.S. banks. With no monthly fee, Standard Bank is perfect for people who want a basic checking account. For those who often frequent the ATM, it is not the best option because it charges an out-of-network ATM fee of $2.50, which is not great in comparison to the average U.S. bank. Also, Standard Bank has an overdraft fee of $35.00, which is on par with the average U.S. overdraft fee. Standard Bank doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll have to locate a Standard Bank ATM or pay the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $2.50 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee $35.00 National Average: $35.00
