CHECKING ACCOUNTS WORTH TALKING ABOUT
Just like other checking accounts but better. We offer a wide range of checking account options to fit your unique needs. The benefits vary, but the main feature regardless of the account you select: Zero hidden fees because the account will not cost you a penny.
The Convenience Checking account features no minimum balance requirement and has no service fees. It offers a FREE ATM or Visa Debit Card, Overdraft Protection from Savings Account, Courtesy Pay after 90-days of membership, Online Banking with Bill Pay, Mobile Banking, Online Statements, and Direct Deposit.
Must be at least 18 years of age and maintain a $5 minimum balance in your Savings Account.
The Green Checking offers the same features as the Convenience Checking while earning interest on your checking balances!
Unlike other financial institutions, BHSFFCU does not require you to have direct deposit into the account or make several debit card transactions monthly before you can earn interest. With the Green Checking, you earn money and BHSFFCU saves money by reducing paper and paid stamps.
Members must opt-in to receive electronic statements.
Fresh Start Checking
At BHSFFCU, we believe in second chances. The Fresh Start Checking is ideal for those who have been restricted from opening a checking account in the past. The account offers the same features as the Convenience Checking with the only exception being reduced Courtesy Pay.
Members are eligible for an upgrade to a Convenience or Green Checking account after 12 consecutive months of successfully maintaining the Fresh Start Checking account without exceeding 3 non-sufficient-fees of any kind, and any negative balances must be paid within 30-days.
Regardless of the checking account you choose, each account offers the benefit of Overdraft Protection, Courtesy Pay, an ATM or Debit Card, and Direct Deposit or Payroll Deduction.
Prevent going overboard with Overdraft Protection. Every checking account at Baptist Health South Florida Federal Credit Union automatically comes with our Overdraft Protection. It works by using the money available in your savings account and automatically transferring enough funds should you not have the available funds in your checking account. This will prevent you from overdrawing your checking account, as long as you have available funds in your savings. There is no cost for this service.
If you have ever made a mistake in your checking account or written a check for more money than the available balance in the account, you know about the expense and embarrassment that comes with an NSF item. You're covered with Courtesy Pay.
At Baptist Health South Florida Federal Credit Union, our Courtesy Pay program may cover your overdrafts up to $700 for the Convenience and Green Checking Accounts and up to $300 for the Fresh Start Checking Account. So, rather than automatically returning unpaid any non-sufficient funds items that you may have, we will consider, without obligation, payment of your reasonable overdrafts.
Ready to sign up for Courtesy Pay? No need to. We have added Courtesy Pay to eligible checking accounts in good standing. And it costs you nothing unless you use the service. Then our normal non-sufficient funds' charge will apply to each item that would create an overdraft on your account. You'll receive a notice each time an overdraft occurs.
So, if you make a mistake in your checkbook...or payday is just too far away...or one of life's unplanned expenses pops up...your checking account is covered with Courtesy Pay. Restrictions do apply. Be sure to review the disclosure carefully.
For additional information regarding the terms and conditions, please see our Courtesy Pay Disclosure.
