Graduates, what are some ways to ensure you have a ‘smart’ checking account? With numerous expenses popping up, overdraft fees are not an option, and flexibility with account handling is vital. Features like online banking, a mobile app, surcharge free ATM’s, and branch access should all be on your radar. ECU offers these features with little to no cost; and we enthusiastically promote these helpful tools to keep you at the top of your game! An ECU checking account is free with your payroll direct deposit; or with just a low $25 daily minimum balance. Having the ability to quickly check your balance, transfer funds, or make payments are all benefits for an on-the go generation. In addition, various services are offered to keep your account on the positive side! Ask ECU to assist in making favorable account behaviors second nature!
