Currently A Customer

I've been a customer of Live Oak for over a year. I have tried a lot of different online banking over the years, and I can say I find them very customer friendly. Contacting customer support for questions about CD's, transfer have been very smooth.
The only problem I have is that they lag behind other online banks for simple interest rates. But I do feel secure with them holding my cash.

No Problems For A Few Years, Closed My Account Easily

Posted by: |

I had a Live Oak savings account for a couple years and it was a mostly smooth process opening and funding my account, and doing ACH transfers. Website and app are simple but easy to use. For awhile, it wasn't working with Mint, but that was eventually fixed.

I ended up deciding to close my account, trying to simplify and consolidate my accounts and get slightly higher interest elsewhere. The closing process was VERY easy, talked to a couple customer service reps who were great, knowledgeable, and processed the closure fairly quickly and on the schedule they promised. That has not been my experience with other banks, so Live Oak Bank gets some bonus points for that.

Bonus Amount Not Reported On Form 1099-INT

Posted by: |

Just a FYI to folks who got the $200 bonus for opening a $25000 account at Live Oak Bank in 2022 - Live Oak Bank is not reporting that bonus in your interest income on Form 1099-INT for 2022.

I called them to ask about this and they said that the amount was not reportable since it is below $600. I don't think Live Oak Bank is handling this properly since all the other banks that have paid me bonuses for depositing funds have reported the bonus amounts as interest on form 1099-INT for the year that the bonus was paid.

So if you do your taxes and rely on the amounts that Live Oak Bank initially reported on 1099-INT there is a chance that Live Oak Bank will send a corrected form 1099-INT in the future forcing you to file an amended tax return.

Their Cds Interests Nosedived

Posted by: |

Their CDs interests nosedived from 4.6% to 4.45%. As Fed. increased rates, Live Oak reduced its rates, this left no incentive to invest in CDs with them.
