Free Checking may be a thing of the past at most banks, but we still offer many ways to avoid a monthly maintenance fee! The easiest option for a free account is e-Statements. Because you'll be helping us save on printing and mailing costs we'll return the favor with an account free of monthly maintenance fees.

Don't want e-Statements? Just maintain a $1,500+ combined balance**, or use Direct Deposit†, or have a loan with a balance of $1 or more, credit cards excluded.

*A CSLA-FCU Savings Account is required, minimum balance $25. Fees and charges subject to change.

*Combined balances are the balances in your CSLA-FCU checking, savings, Holiday saver, certificates, etc under one account number.

†Direct Deposit of full paycheck or benefit check.
