Dime Community Bank is a New York-based financial institution registered with the FDIC as a savings bank. It primarily provides personal and business deposit products and loans, in addition to its commercial lending services. Though its original identity was as a community banking institution, it is now a publicly traded company on NASDAQ (Symbol:DCOM).

Dime Community Bank offers checking, savings, Money Market, and CD accounts on its personal banking side. They have a free checking account and a rewards checking account that both offer attractive features. The free checking account comes with a free order of checks and a Visa check card and has no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. The rewards checking account offers non-Dime ATM transaction fee refunds as well as access to higher interest rates when certain account balance thresholds are met. Several savings accounts offer consumers a way to save while accumulating daily compounded interest. One savings account has several features similar to that of a checking account, including a check card and free online banking. There is a student savings account option, as well, and it offers unlimited free deposits and withdrawals. Money market accounts offer higher rates of interest as account balances meet higher thresholds. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are available in term lengths ranging from 3 to 60 months and require a minimum initial deposit to open. Dime’s CDs have been recognized in the past on DepositAccounts.com. Business banking accounts offer similar rates, and Dime features a unique lawyer account that is connected to a law-related public interest fund.

Dime Community Bank online banking provides a secure platform on which customers can perform account management activities like viewing transaction history, transferring funds, and paying bills. Telephone banking is also available and can be used to review recent activity and pay a mortgage or personal loan.

Dime Community Bank was originally established in 1864 under the name The Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburg. In 2002, the bank moved its headquarters from New York City to Brooklyn, New York, and it serves its customers through branches located across four of the five boroughs of the city.

Safe Place To Keep Your Money - 8/11/2016

Safe Saving Strategies for Today's Interest RatesThe options can seem daunting when it comes to deciding where — and when, and how — to invest your money and make the most out of your savings. As interest rates and the global financial markets shift, the safest places, and strategies, can easily seem like a moving target. Why interest rates matter Perhaps the most important financial tool at The Federal Reserve’s disposal is its ability to raise and lower interest rates. The prevailing wisdom behind this is that when the country’s economy is struggling, lower interest rates can motivate purchasing and borrowing behavior, helping generate a positive cycle of increased financial trust that supports it. The inverse of this is also true, so that when the economy is thriving, the Fed may choose to raise those rates, restricting access to loans and other forms of liquidity to help moderate growth. In today’s market, interest rates are low, so an eventual increase is likely on the ho

Pleasantly surprised

A few months a ago I was looking around for a decent APY that is not negative or zero after inflation for a 5 year CD for my son, lo and behold I have came across The Dime Community Bank. I decided to invest with them. Currently I have a decent APY, which is a bit low but since I'm thinking of the future and not spending, it was an okay deal. I was pleased with the service they provided and my hope is that the market price doesn't change too much within the next couple of years. I would recommend people to check them out if they are looking to save money that they have lying around. Great bank!

Summary of checking and savings account

I enjoy using Dime because of their no monthly fee and excellent customer service. I set up with Dime after two years of using Bank of America and getting charged monthly fees and outrageous overdraft fees. The staff at the bank was also unpleasant to speak with. I really enjoyed setting up an account with Dime and got my debit card very fast after set-up. I travel out of the country often and there is no additional international fee. My banks used in the past charged high fees for international use and other monthly fees. I will continue to use Dime bank because of branch locations close to me and no monthly fees. I also appreciate the staff at my local bank, they are understanding when it comes to overdraft fees for students.

Clumsy Customer Service

Posted by: redfarm | Nov 5, 2015

In opening an online money market account with Dime Savings Bank there was a glitch in initially funding it. The savings account with the external bank was described as (yes) a savings account when according to that bank (SFGI Direct) it should've been labeled as a checking account. Because of this issue the transfer of funds fell through. However I only learned that there was a problem when my account access was blocked. I phoned customer service who routed me to the department responsible for account openings. They told me that my account had been flagged, my access denied, and any activity prohibited. I called the other bank to find out what happened and they explained the reason. I then shared this information with Dime Savings. The transfer went through a few days later and the flag lifted. The only notice though Dime Savings gave alerting me to this issue was a message in my account inbox - which I was blocked from accessing. An email or phone call would've been the most effective means to let me know. On the positive side phoning customer service hasn't meant a long wait to speak with someone.

Money Market Account Misleading

Posted by: Van King | Feb 20, 2017

I just opened a Dime Money Market account. The interest rate is terrific, I had no issues transferring money, and the security seemed good. My one and only, but huge issue is that there is a cap of $5,000 per transaction with transferring money in and out. Nowhere did I see that prior to opening the account. They definitely should be putting that prominently on their information sheet. Luckily I only started with $1,000 because if I wanted to withdraw a large sum of money, I wouldn't be able to as I would be capped at $5,000 per transaction. As it is, since I can make 6 exchanges per month, it only makes sense to leave in $30,000 in the account if I want to be able to move my money in an out in a timely manner.
