How to find the right financial institution

May 11, 2018 | Mission Fed

When it’s time to choose where to bank, it’s important to understand the products and services offered, the nearest branch location, digital banking options and what resources the bank or credit union has for customers. Make sure you’re aware of all the fine print and look into charges and fees before you sign up for an account. Mission Fed offers detailed information about their Checking and Savings Accounts online, so you can do your research from the comfort of your own home—or mobile device! It’s also beneficial to find out what free services, like workshops and online tools, are available to help you bank smart and keep your finances on track.

As you research different banks and credit unions, start by identifying accounts that don’t charge monthly maintenance fees, like Mission Fed’s free Checking with eStatements. This Checking Account only requires an initial deposit of $25 and you have access 24/7 to the account with Mobile and Online Banking and 30,000 fee-free CO-OP ATMs nationwide.
