Overview

Union Bank first started operating in 1891 and is headquartered in Morrisville, Vermont. It manages assets of $745 million and deposits totaling $649 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Union 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. SmartAsset experts rated the bank 3.9 out of 5 stars, indicating that Union Bank is a respectable bank that you should consider. Union Bank offers a full array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Union Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product has a monthly fee of $5.00, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Fees

4.0
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Union Bank has typically average fees as compared against the national average. At $5.00/month, Union Bank is less than the best product for those who want a simple banking experience. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is ideal because it has no out-of-network ATM fees. Union Bank does not refund out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll be required to search for a Union Bank ATM or eat the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $5.00 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00
