Checking Accounts

Smart choices for you and your life.

You want to save and get more out of your money. Shouldn’t your banking relationship help make that possible? At Jewett City Savings Bank, we offer a lineup of checking accounts designed to help you bank easily and affordably.

Free Checking

Want a simple and convenient account with no monthly fees? With no transaction limits or minimum balance requirements, and no fees for Online and Mobile Banking, plus easy access electronic statements, Free Checking lets you bank freely and conveniently.

Classic Checking

Do you like the ease and convenience of Free Checking, but prefer a paper statement? Then, Classic Checking gives you exactly that with a low $2 monthly statement fee. If you decide to switch to estatements, we will reclassify your account as a Free Checking and you will avoid the monthly paper statement fee.

Direct Checking

Save time and get faster access to your money by having your paycheck, Social Security benefits, or other recurring payment deposited into a Direct Checking account each month. When you do, you’ll avoid monthly service fees and earn interest on your account when your daily balance is at least $100.

High Interest Checking

Be rewarded for higher account balances with premium rates of return while keeping your funds easily accessible. And, when you maintain a daily balance of at least $2,500 you will avoid monthly service fees.

Student Checking

With no monthly service fees, no monthly minimum balance requirements, and no per-check charges, our Student Checking account is designed to help students – ages 14-22 – manage their money. Students under the age of 16 must have a parent or guardian as co-owner on the account. To learn more about the services offered to students, visit our Student Accounts page

Join The Inner Circle

Use the balances in your Jewett City Savings Bank deposit accounts to avoid fees on checking, savings and money market accounts, plus use ATMs anywhere in the world with no foreign ATM fees, as well as a host of other free or discounted services.
