Live Oak Bank Is Tops In On-Line Service

Upon retiring I had to make my money work harder for me, I built my CD ladder at about a dozen banks and credit unions that were offering top rates.
They all had pretty much the same account opening processes, but that is where the similarities ended.

Once your first CD account at Live Oak Bank, adding a second/third…. takes under a minute and is painless. Most other banks make you go through the whole opening process again, taking days. It’s like they don’t even know you.

At LOB, you can control virtually any aspect of your CD online with ease. Beneficiary / Joint Owner / Monthly interest can be sent back to your home bank, what to do when the CD matures, etc. Other banks require a call to their customer service, exchange of forms through the mail, it’s an unnecessary bother.

Little wonder why most of my money goes to work at Live Oak Bank.

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 Process.

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.
