Convenience, technology, security, and affordability are important factors to consider when deciding on a checking account. You also want to make sure you find a financial institution that is dedicated to helping you take the stress out of managing your money, not coming up with new ways to squeeze you for more profit.
At Salal Credit Union, we always have your best interest at heart. The benefits and features of our checking accounts reflect that.
Convenient branch and ATM locations
Even if you rarely visit a branch, it’s nice to know there’s one close by. As a member of the CO-OP Network, we work cooperatively with other credit unions to increase the number of ATMs and branches our members can use to access their funds, making us just as convenient as a traditional large bank.
Currently, our network includes over 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs and 5,000 Shared Branches. Try our locator tool to see how many branches and ATMs are in your area—you might be surprised.
Technology for on-the-go account management
With your computer or mobile device, you can use Salal’s Online Banking and Mobile Banking from anywhere at any time to take care of your everyday banking—for FREE. This technology allows you to check balances, transfer funds, pay bills, deposit checks with Mobile Check Deposit, set up account alerts, apply for new deposit and loan accounts, and more.
Proactive fraud prevention
We take debit card fraud and online security very seriously and have numerous measures in place to help ensure the safety of our members’ accounts. Salal stays current on all industry security standards to provide the best protection available. Our staff monitors transactions to detect activity that falls outside normal spending patterns and will notify you right away if anything looks out of the ordinary. Because our debit cards are covered by the Visa Zero Liability Policy, you will not be held liable for any unauthorized transactions you report to us.
No maintenance or minimum balance fees
Unlike most banks, Salal does not charge you for simply having a checking account, nor do we have complicated requirements for waiving fees. We don’t believe you should have to pay for a safe place to keep your money or be penalized for not having a specific account balance.
Reliable and responsive support
All of our staff is located in Seattle, with every department working closely under one roof. This lets us communicate more effectively and act quickly on your behalf. Our teams are always talking to each other, sharing ideas and information to help solve problems for our members or come up with new and improved ways to serve you.
