Union Bank of California is a commercial bank that offers personal, commercial, institutional, and private banking products and services, along with loans and lines of credit to individuals and businesses. The bank’s holding company, UnionBanCal is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol:UB).

On its personal banking side, Union Bank offers multiple savings and checking accounts designed to help consumers manage and save money. Savings account offerings have monthly service charges unless certain requirements are met and are available as a basic option and a higher interest option. The higher interest savings account requires a large initial deposit and daily account balance. Money market accounts have a monthly fee and require a higher initial deposit than savings accounts, but typically offer higher interest rates in returen. Checking accounts offer features like bill pay, traveler’s checks, and debit cards, but can get expensive depending on the type of account and number of features added. The most basic checking account comes with a free savings account, discounted non-Union Bank ATM fees, and an unlimited supply of checks. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) offer fixed interest rates on term lengths from 7 days to 5 years. The bank also has a professional wealth management group to help institutional and individual investors make decisions about fixed income products like mutual funds and annuities.

Union Bank online banking provides customers with a web-based platform on which they can access their accounts to perform various activities like online bill pay, funds transfer, check image viewing, and account alert monitoring. The bank has also optimized its website for mobile banking and released mobile banking apps to make accessing deposit accounts easy from a smartphone or tablet device.

Union Bank was originally established in 1979 as the Bank of Palm Springs before finally changing to its current name in 2008. The bank is a subsidiary of UnionBanCal Corporation, which is a bank holding company that formed out of the merger between The Bank of California and Union Bank in the late 1990’s. UnionBanCal is itself a subsidiary of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, which is one of the largest financial organizations in the world.

Excellent Service And Rates

Although we are a small business, we have been with Union Bank for 2 years now, and the customer service is excellent.

Union Bank an okay bank

Posted by: UnionBank | Sep 5, 2014

I have been a customer of Union Bank for several years now and the only reason I stay with them it's because their bank is really near from were I live, and also their fees are not that bad compared to the other banks. Their customer service is good if I must say so myself, there is always someone available to help you and they solve any inquiries you have in a matter of time. One thing I don't like about Union Banks is that they lack Web/Mobile experience, I think they don't even have a mobile app yet, and their web service is lacking. Overall It's an okay bank so don't expect much from them.

Caveat Emptor=Buyer Beware

I recently open an account with Union Ban and never had any issues with customer service. When I started using there online service I notice I was being tracked by cookies. Union Bank allows Core Metrics Foresee Results to track you while you are signed into their "secure web page". I have never heard of a bank using cookies to track while I am viewing my personal financial information.

When I ask why the first response I received was "you can delete cookies". After speaking with three people no one could answer why they were tracking me and using cookies while I was view personal financial information.

UNSAFE & RISKY

Posted by: Jamie34 | Apr 20, 2011

I have been a long standing customer of Union Bank.  I own my own buisness and also have a business account with Union Bank.  I had a car break in and my purse was stollen.  I called union bank right away and informed them of the theft.  They were to freeze my account in order to protect my funds.  The next day I went into the bank to trasfer my funds and was informed that I had 44.00 in my account.  3 different drive up tellers at 3 different Union Banks let these thiewves withdrawl 6500.00 of my hard earned money.  The lady on the phone I spoke to did not do her job and left my account wide open.  It has been 6 days and I still have not been given back my money and have no idea when their investigation will conclude.  I have been trated like the criminal.  Be aware your money is not safe with this kind of careless employees.
