Frequently Asked Questions
What is an all electronic checking account?
Simply put, E-Z checking does away with paper checks in favor of issuance of a debit card for your transaction needs. You will also never receive a paper statement but rather receive your monthly statements electronically through your e-Teller account.
Is there a minimum balance to open?
No. In fact, there’s no minimum balance to maintain and no monthly fee.
What if I need a paper check?
We can certainly provide you with paper checks at your convenience. There is a $2 fee per check (Bill Pay checks are exempt from the fee).
