Top Questions About Checking Accounts

Which checking account is best for me?

Finding the right checking account is all about the features you want. Look for features that make accessing your money easier, whether it’s online banking, ATM and branch locations, or special services like money orders and Cashier’s Checks.

Will checking accounts earn interest?

Some checking accounts can help you earn interest on your balance, but not all. Interest-bearing checking accounts typically allow you to generate interest based on the amount in the account each day, which is then generally credited monthly.

Where can I find my checking account number?

If you have checks associated with the account, the longer number on the bottom of a check is your account number. You can also find your account number at the top of your account statement, which is provided each month online or in the mail.

Teaching kids good money habits
