No Monthly Fee

We do not charge a monthly fee for account maintenance.

No Per Check Charges

Unlike some institutions that allow so many free and then start charging per-check over a certain number, United Financial lets you write as few or as many and it doesn’t matter.

Free Monthly Statement

There is no monthly statement-processing fee. We will send you a statement of your Checking account free every month.

Earn Dividends

Dividends are posted on the last day of the month and are clearly itemized on your monthly statement. Dividends are earned on an average daily balance of $2,500 or more.

Fifty Free Checks

When you place your first order of checks with us (upon opening your new account), we will also order fifty checks for you for free to get you started.

Free Checks for Seniors

We offer one style of checks free of charge to members who are 64 years of age and older. {One free check order per year}

Duplicate Copies of Each Check

The checks we offer come with carbonless copies – so you’ll automatically write a non-negotiable duplicate every time you issue a check. Checks are not returned on a monthly basis – so these copies serve as receipts. For a small fee, check copies may be ordered for proof of payment.

Debit/ATM Card Access

Your Checking account and Debit/ATM Card go hand in hand. In fact, you will need a United Financial Checking account in order to use the Debit/ATM Card for debit transactions. Click Here to OPT IN for Overdraft Services
