Firefighters First Credit Union permits one type of checking account product per member; however, you may open as many of the same type as you wish. If you already have a Ready Checking, feel free to open additional Ready Checking Accounts. Additional eChecking accounts can be opened if you already have eChecking. If you do not know what type of checking account you currently have or would like to update the type of checking account you have, please Contact Us for further assistance.

1eChecking account requirements: You may not have a Ready Checking account while maintaining an eChecking account, up to five checks may be written per month ($2.00 fee per check applies thereafter), and the account does not earn dividends. In addition, enrollment in eStatements is required, and all account notices and various promotional materials will be sent electronically. Fees may reduce earnings on account. No minimum balance required to open the account.

2Ready Checking: APY (Annual Percentage Yield) is 0.05%. Rate is subject to change after account opening. APY is accurate as of March 1, 2020 Fees may reduce earnings on account. No minimum balance required to open the account. Dividends will be compounding monthly and will be credited monthly. IMPORTANT NOTICE for Ready Checking account holders – If you have an ACH, direct deposit, bill payment, periodic payment, or other automatic transfer to/from your Ready Checking account, we'll automatically switch them to/from your new eChecking account. To prevent any transfers from being rejected, do not add any new transfers to your Ready Checking account.
