Overview

Started in 1910, The Village Bank has $1 billion in assets along with $941 million in deposits, classifying the institution as a medium-size bank. The Village Bank, whose headquarters are in Auburndale, Massachusetts, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.4 stars out of 5, The Village Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. The Village Bank has an array banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks.
