Overview

Summit Bank was founded in 2008 with headquarters in Panama City, Florida. It handles assets of $414 million as well as deposits totaling $335 million, making it a medium-size bank. Summit Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.6 stars out of 5, Summit Bank should be near the top of your list for your bank search. Summit Bank offers a full array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Summit Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Summit Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are your best option for getting the highest income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Summit Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider other options 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. Summit Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
