Overview

Established in 1858, United Bank has assets totaling $7 billion and deposits totaling $5 billion, ranking the institution as a large bank. United Bank, whose headquarters are in Vernon Rockville, Connecticut, 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. On the whole, United Bank is a good bank that gets the job done, with a rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars from our team. United Bank has a varied selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. United Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for getting the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

Fees

5.0
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

United Bank charges customers extremely low fees compared to the national average. Its checking account has no monthly fee, which makes it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is ideal because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. United Bank doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll need to find a United Bank ATM or pay the withdrawal 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 is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 55 total bank locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts. With mobile and web apps, United Bank makes mobile banking easy, even on the go. It does not have all-day customer service with actual service representatives. You can get help during its hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET; Saturday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET. United Bank gets poor feedback from users for its mobile app. Out of 380 ratings across both Apple and Android platforms, the United Bank mobile app is scored at 3.3 out of 5 (compared to the national average of 3.8). You can use United Bank's mobile app to manage your finances by looking at monthly statements, sending and receiving funds and reaching support representatives.

United Bank offers several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. United 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. United Bank's CD rates are fair as compared against the national average.
