Fees

5.0
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

United Bank has typically extremely low fees in comparison to the national average. With no monthly fee, United Bank's checking account is perfect for those who need a hassle-free banking experience. For those who frequently visit the ATM, United Bank is perfect because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. United Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you will need to find a United Bank ATM or eat the 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

United Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about 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. United Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
