First Financial Federal Credit Union

High Yield Checking

First Financial offers High Yield Checking for members who plan to maintain a balance of at least $25,000 in this checking account. A $25,000 minimum deposit is required to open it. Having this balance in the account means getting a higher yield on your balance.

  1. No per-check charges - unlimited check writing without getting charged after writing a certain amount of checks, and unlimited in-branch teller transactions.
  2. A personalized Debit Card issued on the spot in one of our Monmouth or Ocean County branches.
  3. Free Online Banking with Bill Pay (Bill Pay is free as long as 3 bills are paid through Bill Pay each month, otherwise a $6 monthly fee applies).
  4. No monthly service charge as long as a daily balance of $25,000 is maintained.*
  5. 1 Click Remote Deposit Capture and E-Statements may be available with this account.+

Note: This account earns dividends on daily balances of $25,000 or more. Tip: Avoid a service charge by maintaining the required monthly balance and get the highest dividends we offer.
