Business Checking

ETFCU offers four business checking accounts to meet the needs of any business.

Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union offers a variety of checking accounts to meet the specific needs of both large and small businesses and organizations. Each account type offers free online banking and bill pay.

We began offering the business checking account types below in March 2012. If you have an existing business checking account established before that date, you may continue to use it or convert it to one of our newer options under your current member number.

The Business Dividend checking account will be credited all dividends earned during the statement period. See the rate sheet for dividend rates and calculations. Dividends are computed on the daily balance and paid monthly for those days in which the minimum balance is on deposit. Fees may reduce earnings. The Business Vertical Checking account dividends are not paid on balances over $15,000. No dividends paid if all monthly requirements are not met. Monthly requirements include: enrollment in eStatements, one or more online banking or mobile banking login(s), one ore more direct deposit(s) into the account, and fifteen or more debit card transactions. Debit card usage, online and mobile logins, and eStatements enrollment are calculated by post date. ATM transactions do not qualify.
