In this era of digital wallets and cryptocurrency, you may ask what value there is in a checking account? The answer: plenty. Checking accounts have evolved to keep pace with the modern world. According to the FDIC, nearly 95% of U.S. households have a checking account. Why? A personal checking account remains one of the most secure, convenient ways to quickly deposit or withdraw your money, pay bills, and budget. And, many come with perks that make life easier and help you save money.

Benefits of a Checking Account

Checking products and services from banks and credit unions usually are less than the fees you’d pay to access funds through check-cashing stores and payday lenders. First Hawaiian Bank checking accounts come with a debit or ATM card, and convenient online and mobile banking services giving you 24/7 access to your money to help manage your finances. Most banks also offer their customers optional overdraft protection services to help avoid overdraft fees. If you want the most bang for your buck, you will want to take a look into premier checking accounts that the bank offers. You can qualify for discounted services and special benefits the more you bank with them. What else could make your checking account more appealing? Well, your bank or credit-union deposits are federally insured, up to $250,000 per depositor per ownership category.
