Any credit union loan or credit card that is not in good standing or delinquent will not meet one of these checking requirements. Limit one ALEC Rewards Checking per member.
*The nominal rate is the rate used to calculate the monthly dividend.

***Rewards Checking account members are eligible for up to two free initial custom designs per account (such as for the primary and joint owner of the account). Renewals will be at no charge, unless a new image is uploaded. This is an optional service.
****Certificate bonus varies depending on the term of the certificate; only applies at certificate opening, excludes renewals, excludes IRA, HSA, and Variable rate share certificates and cannot be combined with any other promotional offers.
†There will be a fee for each transaction over the amount noted. See ALEC’S Fee Schedule. Please note there may be a fee assessed by the ATM owner, if it is not part of ALEC’s surcharge-free network.
††Subject to approval. If current account upgrade, account must be in good standing within the last 90 days. We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction. We reserve the right not to pay. If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined or returned.
†††ALEC members with a loan from the credit union who receive approval for another loan automatically receive a 0.25% discount. Members with no loan from ALEC must have an ALEC checking account with a $500 direct deposit per statement cycle and be enrolled in E-Statements to qualify for a 0.25% discount. Discount not valid on credit cards, mortgages and home equity lines of credit.
