GET CHECKING is designed for people who currently do not have an account with a financial institution. Maybe you have never had an account and don’t know how to start.
Maybe you have had problems with an account in the past that is making it difficult to open an account now. Having an account is: Safer, More convenient, Less expensive, and a way to access other financial services, like loans and credit.
GET CHECKING offers you the opportunity to open an account that works for you with a
participating financial institution, even if you have had problems in the past.
Your will learn the following:
How to choose an account that is right for you including Low cost checking options and How to avoid costly fees
About checking account benefits, including debit cards and electronic bill paying.
What you need to know to keep your check-ing account in balance.
How your account relationship can help you establish credit and access other services.
Once you have completed the GET CHECKING program, you will receive a certificate. To open your account, take your certificate, and proper identification, to a participating financial institu-tion listed on your certificate. NOTE: If you have outstanding fees from a prior account, you must settle that account before opening a new one. Institutions are not required to open an account if there has been evidence of fraud on a prior account.
