Sussex Bank started in 1976 and its headquarters are located in Franklin, New Jersey. It handles assets of $978 million along with $763 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Sussex 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. Overall, Sussex Bank is a solid pick to be your bank, with a score of 4.2 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Sussex Bank provides customers with a full suite of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Sussex Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly charge. Institutions that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for getting the highest income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Sussex Bank generally has extremely low fees as compared against the national average. With no monthly fee, Sussex Bank's checking account is perfect for those who want an easy checking account. For those who often frequent the ATM, it is ideal because it has no out-of-network ATM fees. Sussex Bank unfortunately doesn't refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll need to search for a Sussex Bank ATM or eat the withdrawal fee.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

Sussex Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Sussex Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about 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. Sussex Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
