Overview

Wauchula State Bank was founded in 1929 and its headquarters are located in Wauchula, Florida. Wauchula State Bank manages assets of $656 million and $581 million in deposits, which makes it a medium-size bank. Wauchula State Bank has above-average access to customer service with a live chat feature, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave Wauchula State Bank a 3.6 out of 5 stars, indicating that it is a decent choice, but with better options out there. Wauchula State Bank provides customers with the full slate of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Wauchula State Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product carries a monthly fee of $2.00, which is not too high as compared against the national average. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.
