    Broadway Bank Free Checking FAQ

    A Broadway Bank Free Checking account is a type of bank account that allows individuals to manage their money without incurring monthly maintenance fees. It provides basic banking services such as deposits, withdrawals, and online transactions without any associated costs.

    Here are some key benefits of having a free checking account:

    • No monthly maintenance fees: One of the significant advantages of a free checking account is that you won't have to pay any monthly fees to keep the account open. This allows you to save money and use it for other financial needs.
    • No minimum balance requirements: Unlike some other bank accounts, our Broadway Bank Free Checking account does not have a minimum balance requirement. This means you can keep your account open and functional regardless of your balance.
    • Easy access to your money: Broadway Bank Free Checking accounts provide convenient access to your funds. You can withdraw cash, make purchases, and pay bills using a Broadway Bank Visa® contactless debit card associated with your account. Additionally, we offer Online and Mobile Banking services, allowing you to manage your money from anywhere at any time.
    • Direct deposit and electronic transfers: Broadway Bank Free Checking accounts support direct deposit, which enables you to have your paychecks, government benefits, or other recurring payments automatically deposited into your account. Electronic transfers also allow you to send money to other accounts quickly and securely.
    • Online banking tools: Many free checking accounts come with online banking features that provide a range of benefits. These may include checking your balance, reviewing transaction history, setting up alerts, and managing your account preferences. Online banking allows you to have better control and visibility over your finances.
    • ATM Access: Check account balances and withdraw cash at our Broadway Bank ATMs and our expanded AllPoint ATM network. You can also deposit cash at select ATM Locations. Find nearby ATMs here.
    • Overdraft protection options: Broadway Bank offers overdraft protection services, which can be particularly helpful if you accidentally spend more money than you have in your account. Overdraft protection can help prevent declined transactions and potential fees, providing you with peace of mind.

    While Broadway Bank Free Checking accounts offer numerous benefits, it's essential to consider a few limitations:

    • Limited interest-earning potential: Free checking accounts generally do not offer high-interest rates compared to other types of accounts, such as savings accounts or certificates of deposit (CDs). If you're looking to grow your money significantly, you may want to explore other investment options.
    • Possible fees for additional services: While the account itself may be free, be aware that we may charge fees for certain services or transactions. These might include using ATMs outside the bank's network, wire transfers, or ordering personalized checks. Review the fee schedule to understand any potential charges.

    Opening a Broadway Bank Free Checking account is a fast and easy digital process. Here's a general outline of the steps involved:

    • Gather required documents: You will need to provide personal identification (such as a driver's license), proof of address, and your Social Security number.
    • Complete the application: Fill out the digital application, providing accurate and up-to-date information.
    • Fund your account: Broadway Bank requires an initial $25 deposit to open the account.
    • Review the terms and conditions: Carefully read through the terms and conditions associated with the account to understand any specific requirements or limitations.
    • Confirm account activation: Once your application is processed and approved, we will provide you with the necessary account details, including your account number and any debit cards or checks associated with the account.
