Checking Solutions

ProFed offers three easy solutions for your checking account needs.

  • Simple Checking is free. There are no hidden charges. It's a simple way to do your banking hassle-free.
  • Checking Plus earns you dividends when you maintain a minimum balance.
  • EZ Checking helps people who need an easy start on a new checking account. Even if you've made a mistake on another account, EZ Checking can help. The small monthly service charge helps cover transaction costs, and can still save you money when you use ProFed instead of check cashing companies.

Overdraft Options

ProFed has you covered. If you overdraft your checking account, you have options.

  • Overdrafts can automatically transfer the funds to your checking account for a small, per-item charge. This solution is easy and economical, but automatic overdrafts are limited by Federal Regulation D to no more than 6 per month.
  • You may qualify for Overdraft PrivilegeSM, a service that pays your overdraft for a fee. Then you can bring your account back into the black when you are ready. Your account can overdraft up to your maximum limit, and you may opt out at any time.
  • We also offer options for your Home Equity Line of Credit or ProTect Line of Credit. Ask a loan representative for more details.
