It's a truly free checking account so you'll never have to worry about monthly service fees or a minimum balance. It’s that simple. 

Plus, you can earn interest* with our enhanced perks when you meet certain qualifiers each month.

*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Rate may change after account is opened. The APY is accurate as of the last dividend declaration date. If the average daily account balance is over $1,000, then 0.10% APY will be earned. To earn 1.00% APY on up to $15,000 of the average daily account balance and to receive up to $10 per month in non-Georgia United ATM surcharge fee refunds, there is no minimum account balance requirement; however, the account must perform at least 15 Georgia United debit and/or credit card transactions during the month, have a monthly direct deposit of $500 or more and be enrolled in E-Statements; remaining average daily account balances in excess of $15,000 will earn 0.10% APY. If the listed qualifiers for the 1.00% APY have not been met and the average daily account balance is below $1,000, no interest will be earned. **Courtesy Pay fee is $30 per transaction. An overdraft may be imposed on the following transaction categories: checks, online banking, ACH transactions, in-person withdrawals, preauthorized automatic transfers, etc. Your account must be brought current within 30 days of initial use. We typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing, or you are not making regular deposits, or you have too many overdrafts. All Credit Union programs, rates, terms and conditions are subject to change at any time without notice. Federally Insured by NCUA.

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures your deposits (in savings, savings certificates, and share-draft/checking accounts) up to $250,000. IRAs are insured separately to $250,000.
