What is a Checking Account?
Manville Area Federal Credit Union checking accounts are financial products offered by MAFCU to their members. MAFCU is a financial cooperative that are owned and controlled by our members, who are also known as depositors or shareholders. MAFCU offers a range of financial products and services, including checking and savings accounts, loans, and investment options such as share certificates.
Credit union checking accounts are similar to checking accounts offered by traditional banks, but they may offer several advantages over bank checking accounts. Credit unions typically offer lower fees and higher interest rates on checking accounts, as they are not-for-profit organizations and are focused on serving the financial needs of their members. Credit union checking accounts may also offer additional features and benefits, such as free online and mobile banking, free checks, and free ATM access.
In summary, credit union checking accounts are financial products offered by credit unions to their members. Credit union checking accounts offer lower fees and higher interest rates than traditional bank checking accounts and may also offer additional features and benefits. To open a checking account at a credit union, individuals must first become a member of the credit union and meet any membership and deposit requirements. Credit union checking accounts can be used to conduct financial transactions such as paying bills, making deposits, and withdrawing cash.

Specialized Checking Acounts
In addition to traditional checking accounts, credit unions may also offer specialized checking accounts for specific groups or purposes.

These specialized checking accounts may offer additional features and benefits tailored to the needs of the target group.
