What you get with a Checking Account at Scott Credit Union
No monthly maintenance fees
We don’t charge a monthly or annual maintenance fee with Checking like most of the big banks. Fees such as insufficient funds and returned checks do still apply, but we work to keep them low. View our fee schedule here.
Take your account mobile
Our convenient and free SCU Mobile app allows you to check balances, deposit checks and make transfers all while you’re on the go! Simply search for us in both the Apple App Store & Google Play Store or visit our SCU Mobile page for more details.
Stay on top of everything with eAlerts
eAlerts are free to use and allow you to have an email or text message sent to you when certain events occur in your accounts.2 You can set eAlerts to notify you when your balance falls below a certain amount, a large purchase or ATM withdrawal is made, or even anytime your account is accessed via SCU Online. You can add and remove eAlerts at any time through the SCU Online navigation menu. Learn more about eAlerts.
