A checking account is for everyone. With easy access to your cash, you’re likely to use this account the most. Whether you’re buying groceries, paying a bill or depositing a paycheck (see Direct Deposit), Riverside checking accounts don’t place restrictions on how often you can access your money. This makes them ideal for everyday spending.

As the name suggests, a checking account comes with a free set of basic checks which can be used to make payments or pay acquaintances. A checking account also gives you the option of Bill Pay to pay your bills quickly, easily and securely.

More often than not, however, you’ll use a debit or ATM card to access your cash. Upon request, you will receive a free Riverside Visa Debit Card in the mail.

All personal checking accounts at Riverside offer unlimited check writing, no monthly fees, no service charges, and no minimum balance. Enroll in Overdraft Protection to help you avoid overdraft fees by automatically transferring funds from your Share Savings Account into your Checking account to cover the cost.

As with a Share Savings account, a checking account will give you access to free 24 Hour Online Banking, free e-Statements, and free Direct Deposit.
