Having a fee-free checking account is easy with Direct
Deposit of your payroll check, retirement check or federal payments. Direct
Deposit not only saves you money, but it's also safe and convenient. Even if
you don't have Direct Deposit, select the $500 minimum balance option to avoid
service fee. Accounts without Direct Deposit or not maintaining a minimum
balance of $500 will be charged a monthly service fee.
Visa Check Card (debit card)
Paying with a VisaŽ Check Card is quick and easy because you don't have to write a check and then wait for approval.
Your Check Card is also accepted by any merchant who accept Visa. Members with
our checking account may be eligible for a Visa Check Card
which can be used as an ATM card at any Allpoint,
STAR or Cirrus ATM to get cash from your savings and checking
Our Check Card also earns UChoose Rewards
points to redeem for gift cards or other items. You'll
earn 1 UChoose point for each net $2 spent on Check Card "signature" purchases―as
long as your current card is registered and you choose "credit"
instead of "debit" (PIN). The purchase amount is still debited from
your checking account, like using a check. Register online for this

We provide you with duplicate checks in a variety of styles. Duplicate style
checks provide a convenient way to keep track of who the check was payable to,
the amount, and the date you wrote it. Check Safekeeping eliminates the need
for you to store cancelled checks; photocopies of checks are available if needed.
See the fee schedule for cost. The first set of 50
checks are supplied to you at no cost.
