Overview

Unity Bank first started operating in 1991 with headquarters in Clinton, New Jersey. Unity Bank manages $1 billion in assets and deposits totaling $1 billion, ranking it as a large bank. Unity Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a commendable 4.2 stars out of 5, Unity Bank proves it is a solid contender in your bank search. Unity Bank offers a varied selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. Unity Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Unity Bank's standard checking does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best bet for gaining the highest income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.

Unity Bank charges customers extremely low fees in comparison to the national average. Its checking account has no monthly fee, rating it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account. For those who visit the ATM often, Unity Bank is ideal because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. Unity Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, which means you'll be required to find a Unity Bank ATM or pay the withdrawal fee.
