FREE CHECKING

Checking that's free.
As it should be.

No minimum balance. No maintenance fee.

There’s no need to worry about maintaining a minimum balance or paying a monthly service charge because BSCU checking is absolutely free. In fact, most of our services have no fees. With a BSCU checking account, you’ll have access to a variety of companion services. To sign up for your free BSCU checking account, visit us at one of our locations.

Account number format to set up direct deposit to or automatic withdrawals from your checking account: use all 10 digits at the bottom of your checks. If you do not have checks please call the credit union for your 10 digit account number.

Overdraft Protection

BSCU Overdraft Protection* links a line of credit of up to $3,000 to your BSCU checking account. If a transaction exceeds the available money in your checking account, the balance will be transferred from your line of credit so your transaction won’t be denied and checks won’t bounce. It can also be used for extra cash in between paychecks.

Apply for overdraft protection now.

You can also link your checking account to your savings account for overdraft protection from your available balance.

*Application and credit approval required.
