Choosing a Bank

Ask these questions to help you decide which bank or credit union to use:

  • How much is the minimum initial deposit?
  • Is there a fee if your balance drops below a certain amount each month (a minimum balance)?
  • Are there fees for checking services and overdraft protection?
  • There could be fees for using an ATM, especially if the ATM is not owned by “your” bank.
  • Are there online and mobile tools for paying bills and depositing checks?
