Overview

United Bank first started operating in 1979 with headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. United Bank has assets of $19 billion as well as deposits totaling $14 billion, making it a very large bank. United 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Overall, United Bank is a respectable bank that gets the job done, with a score of 4.1 out of 5 stars from our team. United Bank offers a full selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, 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, United Bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly charge. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is your best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

United Bank charges its customers extremely low fees as compared against the national average. Its checking account has no monthly fee, making it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account.

United Bank offers several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. United Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options 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 in comparison to the national average.
