1. Overview 2. How We Rated It 3. Products Offered 4. Branch Locations


Urban Partnership Bank started in 2010 with its headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. Urban Partnership Bank handles assets of $472 million and deposits totaling $425 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Urban Partnership Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, 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 offerings. With a poor 2.5 out of 5 stars, Urban Partnership Bank is a lower-rated bank that might not serve all your needs. Urban Partnership Bank provides customers with a complete array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. Banks that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.
