About Chase Bank
Chase Bank is the consumer banking arm of JPMorgan Chase, one of the largest banking companies in the U.S. Chase offers a full range of banking services, including checking accounts, savings accounts, CDs and money market accounts. The bank, which can trace its roots to 1799, has grown through several signature mergers over the years, including one with Bank One Corp. in 2004 and its 2008 acquisition of the deposits and most of the assets of the failed Washington Mutual.
Chase is actively expanding its retail banking presence. In December 2018, Chase opened its first retail branch in the Greater Boston area. A month earlier, its first branch in Greater Washington, D.C. opened. The bank also plans on adding 25 branches in Georgia and 35 branches in Florida within the next three years.
If you like having quick access to branches and ATMs — and you live where the bank operates — Chase is an obvious choice. If you’re hunting for good rates or want to be able to use the first ATM you see without paying a high out-of-network fee, look elsewhere.
