Yes, you need to be a member to open a checking account. Becoming a credit union member is quick and easy. You can register by opening a savings account online or in one of our branches.
What makes this account different from your other checking accounts?
With this account, you get extra benefits. We start by giving you all the perks that come with our Truly Free Checking, and then we add the following:
Free money orders
Free cashier's checks
Free account histories
One free box of checks per year
7 free ATM transactions per month
This is our most benefit-rich checking account, and you only need to keep a minimum balance of $1,000 in any account other than checking to hold this account.
Does it cost anything to open this senior checking account? Are there any annual fees?
No. It’s really a free checking account. There are no monthly or yearly fees for either our checking or savings account.
Does there have to be a minimum amount in this checking account at all times?
We don’t require a minimum balance in this Golden Star Senior Checking account but ask that you keep a minimum balance of $1,000 in an account other than this one. Doing so earns you all the extra benefits that come with this account.
How long does it take to receive my debit card by mail after opening a checking account?
Once you open your checking account and request your debit card, it should take 3-5 business days to receive your debit card in the mail.
