Why do I get charged a check cashing fee?

The check cashing fee is charged to cover the cost of the transaction and to encourage members to utilize lower-cost methods to complete their transactions.  Members can easily avoid this fee.


The fee is waived for youth accounts, accounts using bill pay, accounts with e-statements, direct deposit, or accounts that have a minimum average daily balance of $500 over the last 60 days.
