Choosing the right checking account is mostly a matter of preferences and priorities.

We recommend identifying the most important aspect(s) of a checking account and going from there. For example, do you use ATMs often? You’ll need an account with unlimited transactions. Want to earn interest on a high-balance account? Then choose an interest-bearing checking account. Perhaps you’re tech-savvy or want to go 100% paperless — consider a SmartAccount with a comprehensive digital banking suite. Older than 50? Silver Checking has many benefits including a competitive rate of interest and free checks for the life of the account.
