Established in 1902, Traditional Bank has assets totaling $1 billion as well as $1 billion in deposits, which makes it a large bank. Traditional Bank, whose headquarters are in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, 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, Traditional Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration, with a score of 4.2 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset experts. Traditional Bank provides customers with the full package of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Traditional Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Traditional Bank's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance charge. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.

Traditional Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Traditional Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider 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. Traditional Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
