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?
*Immediate credit of your direct deposit to your Bellwether MyMoney Account up to two business days early is based upon when we receive your payroll from your employer. Bellwether cannot assume any liability for not depositing these funds to your account early. You must be a member of Bellwether or eligible for membership with direct deposit of net pay into a MyMoney Account.
**Must have a MyMoney Account to qualify for annual overdraft and monthly Savings Transfer fee waivers. Our standard overdraft fee is $30, and the savings overdraft fee is $10. Fees apply for all transactions and are imposed immediately with no repayment period.
