Responsible Checking

Having a checking account means having a safe, secure place to keep your money. It means being able to get paid easily and have access to tools that make managing money easier too.

The updated Bank On National Account Standards identify critical product features for bank or credit union accounts appropriate for people looking for an accessible, affordable option. Accounts with a BankON Certified button meet these account standards.

Questions to ask when choosing a checking account:
  • Is there a minimum balance?
  • Are there fees? Examples may include: maintenance, inactivity, ATM, overdraft, check cashing, or others?
  • How can you access the account to review or use funds?
