Why do I need an account?

  1. It’s safe. You can’t lose money or have it stolen while it’s in the account. And, the federal government guarantees your money.∗
  2. It’s smart. Access to your money is free. Unlike using check cashing businesses, cashing your check at a bank won’t cost you any money.
  3. It’s convenient. You can write checks to pay your bills. No need to buy money orders. Other services include direct deposit, online banking, and automatic bill paying.
