The credit union offers several different checking account services to its members.
A minimum deposit of $100.00 is required to open the account, or a member may elect to open the account with payroll deduction or net deposit. There are no monthly service charges if the checking account balance is maintained at $100.00 OR if the member is using direct deposit or net deposit to fund the account. Accounts not meeting these criteria are charged a $10.00 monthly fee. Members may be eligible for overdraft protection, online bill pay and Visa Check cards.
For members 65 & older, we understand that living on a fixed income can be difficult, and that money can be tight throughout the month. Because of this, we offer an account where we waive the monthly service charge. Members may be eligible for overdraft protection, online bill pay and Visa Check cards, and 2 standard boxes of FREE checks per year. As Classic Checking account holders “age into” the Senior Checking age range, their account automatically switches over to Senior Checking to receive the same benefits.
Similar to Senior Checking, we offer an account for our young members who are in high school or college where we do not charge the monthly service charge. As many youngsters (ages 16-21) are starting out, we feel that charging them a monthly service charge would only do more harm than good as they are getting established in life. A Student Checking account can be opened with a minimum deposit of $50. Members may be eligible for overdraft protection, online bill pay and Visa Check cards.
We understand that sometimes small mistakes in balancing your checking account can cause big problems with overdraft fees. At the Emergency Responders Credit Union if you have an active share account, we honor drafts on your account that are less than $25.00; provided the aggregate amount of the overdrafts are less than $25.00. The activity is honored and the credit union doesn’t charge a fee. Embarrassment is avoided and you save money.
