Checking Accounts

Great Lakes Federal has a variety of transaction or checking accounts that have been developed over the years based on member requests. Checks can be reordered online or on our web page. Just follow the directions on your reorder form. We have created a generic credit union check with our logo, they are available in nine colors and are the most economical.

FREE Checking Account

This is our most popular checking account. There is no minimum requirement, no interest earned, no monthly fees. Just the cost of checks and you are good to go.

PLUS Account

Our higher interest bearing checking account requires a higher minimum balance of $2,500.00. This is an ideal account when your volume usage is high and is therefore less restrictive than our money market accounts.

Small Business Account

Small business owners take advantage of our small business account as we do not charge for checks deposited or for checks withdrawn. It is a non-interest bearing checking account with no minimum balance and no monthly fees and account activity can be tracked on our home banking site. We provide deposit bags and a deposit stamp free of charge. Locking deposit bags require a deposit. Our main office can accept the larger bags in the night deposit box.

Money Market Account

Members wanted an alternative to a term account. Our basic Money Market Account does just that, requiring a minimum of $5,000.00 and is limited to four transactions a month. Your checks are provided free upon opening the account.

Money Market PLUS Account

Our highest yield transaction account is our Money Market PLUS Account. The minimum balance is $10,000.00 and is limited to six transactions a month. Yours checks are provided free upon opening the account.
