Monthly maintenance fees WAIVED when you opt in for eStatement!

You can choose to have your monthly maintenance fee waived, simply by electing to receive your statements electronically. When you choose eStatement within 60 days of opening your account, you will avoid a monthly maintenance fee and you will not have to maintain a minimum balance. You may choose eStatements at any time during the period your account is open to avoid having to maintain a minimum balance. A deposit of $50 is required to open this non-interest bearing account. You must be an Online Banking customer to sign up for eStatements.

Protect yourself with Overdraft Protection3

Consider pairing your checking account with a Companion Savings account and enjoy a savings option with no minimum balance requirement or monthly maintenance fee when you combine your statements. Use this account to automatically transfer available funds to your checking account to cover overdrafts. An initial deposit of $50 is required to open a Companion Savings account and the account ownership must be identical to your checking account.
