Checking Plus

Get everything that’s irregular about our regular checking accounts, plus grow your money by earning dividends.

Go Beyond Ordinary with Checking Plus

Checking Plus is even better than Regular Checking. You see, our regular checking accounts are actually not very regular because they are straightforward and simple: no fees, no stipulations, and no hassles. Well, Checking Plus is even better because it has everything regular checking has, plus you earn dividends when your account balance is $10,000 or more.

Checking Plus is free when your account balance is $10,000 of more, otherwise it costs just $10 per month.

Benefits

  • Grow your money by earning dividends
  • Get all the benefits of regular Checking

Many people come talk to us to open an account or take out a loan.

When we talk about a checking account they tell us their bank pays interest on their checking account and are “all set.” As they learn more and dig into what they have, they find they may be earning nominal interest, but there are so many fees and stipulations that the checking balance takes one step forward and two steps back.

We have no strings attached to our Checking Plus

Just keep your balance above $10,000 and earn dividends.

No required usage, no per check charge

Just a great account that rewards you for good habits.
