What’s better than free checking? We’d say it’s free checking that also pays interest! Our GOLD Checking accounts combine the convenience of checking and dividend payments.

Face it: Overdrafts happen. But returned checks, non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees and rejected ACH transactions are hassles we want to help you avoid. That’s why we provide free overdraft protection with every GOLD Checking account. We’ll link it to your GOLD Share Savings account or to a GOLD Personal Line of Credit.

Please refer to our fee schedule for full details of costs and charges.
