Why Do I Need an Account?

Using check cashers may seem more convenient than having a checking account at a bank. But these services cost a lot more than a checking account. Check-cashing stores charge you up to 5 percent of the check amount. Cash a $250 check and pay 5 percent, or $12.50. To cash two paychecks a month, you may pay more than five times as much in fees than you would at a bank with a regular checking account. And, since money orders can cost as much as $3 per order, your costs could really add up.

Use this simple calculator to find out how much you can save each month with a bank account. We'll keep your information confidential. * What is the amount of your paycheck?(1000)
