Checking Account Options at First Bank

Whether you need a personal checking account or an account for your business, First Bank is the best bank to open a checking account. With multiple options and plenty of benefits, we make your banking experience easier and your financial goals more attainable.

Personal Banking

We offer three types of personal checking accounts that range from basic to premium. The Everywhere Checking account is our most basic account and features benefits such as access to free online and mobile banking and rewards benefits for registered cards.

With the Everywhere Plus account you receive all of the benefits of Everywhere Checking, plus the chance to earn interest at a minimal balance requirement. Our Everywhere Premium account gives you all the basics of Everywhere Plus, but includes perks like no First Bank transaction fees on out-of-network ATM withdrawals.

We also have two account options designed with college students and seniors in mind. Our Campus Checking account provides college students under the age of 25 with no monthly maintenance fees as long as certain requirements are met. Plus, you can earn cash back when you use your debit card at hundreds of participating retailers. Seniors who use direct deposit may qualify for no monthly maintenance fees and other benefits with our Senior Checking account.
