My husband and I have been banking through this bank since 2009, so for four years. Just within the first year, they screwed up our deposits. We put our checks in the bank and went to pay bills and get odds and ends for the house, and we ended up overdrafting $500 or so in the first day we got our checks. The reason for that was that they never added our money into the acct. They did five days later. We have overdrafted so many times just because of their mess ups. They don't like to add your money in when you put it in there; it's been almost 24 hours since we made a deposit, and it's still not in there. I recommend that NOBODY goes to this bank.  We have had so many problems that it's ridiculous. They do try to make it right once you confront them, but I am tired of not being able to do what I need to do with my money when I put the money in the bank. It's time to switch banks, and get ahold of the administrator. This is the last straw.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on equity can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. The Security State Bank has a relatively low asset base.
