Savings Banks

Savings banks are geared around the primary purpose of accepting savings deposits from their customers, and on paying their customers interest on those savings. Originally designed to help low-income people save money, these banks may have a narrow focus but offer a range of savings products. Some online-only savings banks offer higher rates of interest.
