Transparency in Policies and Fees on Checking Accounts

The Pew Charitable Trust (Pew) has urged the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to mandate clear, concise and uniform checking account disclosures to increase transparency and assist consumers in selecting the best account for their personal financial needs. Pew also developed a model summary disclosure format that uniformly provides clear and concise information about checking account fees, terms, and conditions, allowing consumers to make comparisons across multiple financial institutions.

In accordance with Pew’s recommendations, the Credit Union has created a one-page summary of our Checking Account Fees and Terms.
