FAQs

How does a checking account work?

A checking account is a bank account that's used mainly for transactions. In fact, the technical term for a checking account is a "transaction account." The owner can usually withdraw from or deposit money into a checking account at any time. When you have a checking account, you can get a checkbook to write checks.

What if I accidentally spend more than what’s available in my Checking Account?

We know mistakes happen. That’s why Bellwether offers Courtesy Pay for eligible members if you accidentally overdraw your checking or savings account. With Courtesy Pay, we’ll cover eligible overdrafts in your account up to $500, so your transaction can be processed. Learn more here.

Does a debit card work with a checking or savings account?

A debit card is linked to a checking account. When you use a debit card to make a transaction, the money is pulled from your checking account. It's a substitute for cash.

How do I check my checking account?

You'll have a variety of ways to check your checking account when you open one with Bellwether. You can check your account at any one of our three New Hampshire branches, or access your account online or on our free mobile app. We can also send you monthly account statements by mail.
