Traditional Bank was founded in 1902 and is headquartered in Mount Sterling, Kentucky. It owns assets of $1 billion along with deposits totaling $1 billion, classifying it as a large bank. Traditional Bank lacks premium access to customer service, 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 offerings. Overall, Traditional Bank is a solid pick to be your bank, with a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset experts. Traditional Bank provides customers with a complete array of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Traditional 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, Traditional Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding an institution with no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is the best option for getting the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

Traditional Bank generally has extremely low fees compared to the national average. With no monthly fee, Traditional Bank is ideal for those who want a basic checking account.

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