Checking

Choose the Checking Account that is right for you. 

The Membership Checking Account is truly free; there are no minimum balance requirements and no monthly fees. Get the flexibility you need without the expensive frills.

The Money Management Checking Account (MMCA) was designed for those members looking for the convenience of a checking account combined with the benefits of a higher yield. With the MMCA, your checking funds work harder for you all year long. If you typically maintain a minimum balance of $2,500 or more in your checking account*, switching to our MMCA is a smart move.

ATM Surcharge Rebate Program

When you enroll in eStatements and use your BFSFCU Visa Debit Card at any non-BFSFCU ATM, the first six surcharges you incur each month will be rebated to you.2 After the initial six cash withdrawals, members will be responsible for the surcharges associated with non-BFSFCU ATM transactions. Please note: ATM transactions performed using our BFSFCU ATM card do not qualify for the ATM Surcharge Rebate Program. To activate e-Statements or e-Alerts, login to Online Banking, access the Self Service menu, and click on the e-Statement Enrollment link. Please note that failure to maintain a valid email address with the Credit Union will result in the cancellation of eStatements and removal from the ATM Surcharge Rebate Program.

2 ATM withdrawals made outside of the United States and its territories may be subject to foreign transaction fees, which are separate from ATM surcharge fees. Foreign transaction fees will not be rebated.
