Couldn’t be any easier from typing in info, linking accounts and adding my wife as co-owner. Outstanding rates, solid ratings and great service. I am a fan.
I’ve opened many online accounts, mostly CDs, and Live Oak Bank is BY FAR the easiest. The few times that I’ve had questions their agents were nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. For me, where they stand out the most is if you want to open more than one account. Which includes rolling over CDs. Their process is streamlined and instant.
Over the past 2 years, Live Oak Bank has remained competitive with their interest rates – sometimes tops sometimes not, but reasonable. As a result, I don’t have to worry about continuously monitoring and chasing rates – saving me time and stress that I had when utilizing other online banks.
Opened a savings account 6 months ago and I am more than pleased.
The whole experience has been flawless. I have not needed to speak with anyone at Live Oak Bank while depositing, transferring, or withdrawing funds! Also, they notify me monthly on the first when interest is added to the account.

Easy, seamless application process. These guys are in touch with reality. No complicated pointless BS.

I followed the online process to open and fund a one year CD last week and every step was very clear. I called by phone once to make certain that everything was in order and their representative “Abby” was very knowledgeable, professional, and personable and my account was quickly funded. Easy Peasy.
