Earn More with Interest-Bearing Checking Accounts


An interest-bearing checking account offers the interest accumulation of savings accounts with the withdrawal and check-writing ease of checking accounts. This best-of-both-worlds combination allows bank customers to accrue some interest on their balance while only needing to meet some minimum requirements.

Each is uniquely designed to meet the needs of our many different customers.

Is an Interest-Bearing Account Right for Me?

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, interest-earning checking accounts are typically good for people who:

  • Carry large account balances
  • Spend less than they earn
  • Keep a stockpile of cash or funds
  • Are retired and want a higher-interest product than most of today’s investment accounts
  • Pay attention to their finances and can meet the criteria needed to open an interest-earning checking account
