You can access and manage accounts online and with your phone, even depositing your checks with their MobileBanc app. You can receive your statements via email and also pay bills online. With checking accounts, using online banking capabilities eliminates most service fees such as a monthly statement fee. Even though you can manage most of the common accounts online, some accounts must be opened initially at one of their branches, and it is not clear whether all accounts are eligible for online services.
Customers can choose among student, premier, commercial, NOW, and money market checking accounts. The Ultima Checking account offers a tiered interest rate to reward higher balances. A liquid asset checking account is designed for organizations such as school districts and governments, offering competitive interest rates.
