Overview

Started in 1999, Village Bank has assets totaling $475 million as well as $413 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Village Bank, whose headquarters are in Midlothian, Virginia, 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a score of 4.2 out of 5 stars, Village Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Village Bank provides customers with the complete package of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Village Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding a bank with free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.
