Start Up Checking
Build a strong financial foundation.
New to banking? No worries. We’ve got a convenient, cost-saving account just for you.
Welcome! There’s a lot to consider when choosing the right account, so we’ll make this easy. In partnership with the City of Boston’s Bank On program, our Start Up Checking1 account is a safe and affordable alternative to costly check-cashing and related services. It’s often those small fees that add up over time – catching you, and your account balance, off-guard.
Our Start Up Checking account includes free paycheck deposits, and free payment options like Online Bill Pay, Debit Card, Mobile Wallet, and even Zelle® – helping you avoid unexpected overdraft and related fees. That way you can put the money toward more important things, like household expenses, savings, and long-term financial goals.
Another big step in your financial journey is establishing a credit history. Our Secured Credit Card2 option can help with that, too.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
