Our Performance Checking account has a low minimum balance requirement to avoid a monthly fee but, low enough for many members to reach while owning an account with boundless benefits! A Performance Checking account lets you take full advantage of our checking account products and pays dividends for balances over $1,000.00.
eChecking is for members who value technology and don't want to concern themselves with minimum balance requirements. All you need to do is sign up for eStatements and enjoy the benefits of an SAFCU checking account with no monthly fee.
Are you at least 62 years old and receiving a direct deposit from Social Security or a pension plan? If the answer is yes, you qualify for a Senior Checking Account with the credit union. SAFCU's Senior Checking Account offers all the benefits of our Performance Checking Account with no minimum balances or monthly fee. It's that easy.
Whichever account you choose, SAFCU offers a Visa Debit® card that not only has purchasing power at millions of locations worldwide, but gives you access to nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATM's nationwide through the Co-OP Network. That's right, you won't be charged to withdraw money from any Co-Op Network ATM up to 15 times per month, including Co-Op Network ATMs located inside 7-Eleven stores.
