Established in 1906, Winter Hill Bank has assets totaling $357 million along with $274 million in deposits, classifying the institution as a small bank. Winter Hill Bank, whose headquarters are in Somerville, Massachusetts, 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. On the whole, Winter Hill Bank is a good bank that deserves your consideration, with a rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Winter Hill Bank offers a diverse array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Winter Hill Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Winter Hill Bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly charge. Using a bank with no-fee checking and a high savings APY is the best option for gaining the highest income on your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

Fees

4.3
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Winter Hill Bank has generally low fees as compared against the national average. With no monthly fee, Winter Hill Bank's checking account is ideal for people who need an easy checking account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is fair because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.50, which is reasonable compared to other U.S. banks. Winter Hill Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll be required to search for a Winter Hill Bank ATM or accept the fee.
