What types of services does Patriot Bank offer?

Patriot Bank has several different account types, including personal and business checking and savings, a money market deposit account, and a CD.

Where do I go to open an account?

The best way to open an account online with Patriot Bank is to go to their website and apply. Alternatively, you can go to a physical branch and open an account that way.

What does FDIC insured mean?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the U.S. government. Banks that are FDIC-insured protect up to $250,000 worth of deposits if the bank fails.

Customer Support

With 13 physical locations and a user-friendly website, Patriot Bank offers solid in-person and online customer support. The bank is dependable and has a community-first, customer-centric approach to financial services, resulting in good customer service. There’s also a convenient mobile app and several methods to connect with a customer service representative.
When contacting them via phone, wait times are usually short. It’s possible to connect with a live representative within a few minutes, though it may take longer during peak times. Email communication can take a couple of business days.
Patriot Bank’s representatives are typically professional, friendly, and helpful. They also have a solid reputation for resolving problems quickly and efficiently.

Privacy & Security

As an FDIC member, Patriot Bank insures up to $250,000 in deposits. The bank also has multiple safeguards in place to protect its customers’ accounts. This includes both digital data encryption and secured physical locations.
Like other financial institutions, Patriot Bank does collect, use, and share certain information. However, it complies with federal law and is transparent about what it does with the information and why. Information it may collect includes an applicant or customer’s Social Security Number, income information, account balances, and transaction history (from using its services). This is standard in the industry.
Patriot Bank also offers financial security in the form of identity theft protection and debit card fraud protection. The bank also has several resources for customers and businesses to further protect their data.
On the Better Business Bureau, Patriot Bank has an A+ rating but is not accredited.

In Conclusion

Overall, Patriot Bank is a solid option for those looking for a community bank with different types of financial solutions, including personal and business bank accounts, as well as loans and credit cards. The main drawback is that Patriot Bank only has 13 physical locations, all of which are in Connecticut or New York. So, if you’d prefer in-person banking but don’t live nearby, this could be inconvenient.
