Making Cents of Checking Accounts

  • Feb 15, 2019

A checking account offers easy access to your money for your everyday spending and helps keep your cash secure.  Ascentra Credit Union, like most financial institutions, offers different types of checking accounts. Finding the right one will depend on your needs.

Some features include instant access to your cash with direct deposit, online account access, and mobile check deposit, making it easy to manage your money.
Some might offer benefits such as free checks, monthly dividends, and even discounted loan rates. While some checking accounts offer benefits you need, they may also have specific requirements that you may not meet. Some financial institutions require a minimum balance then charge you a fee if you go below that amount.  

It’s also important to read the fine print and be aware of other requirements such as maintenance, transfer, or monthly fees.
