Checking FAQs

Checking FAQ

Can anyone open a First Eagle Checking Account? First Eagle membership is open to everyone who works for one of our Select Employee Groups (SEGs) and their immediate family members.

How do I open a Checking Account? You can open an account online, call 888-231-2022 or visit any of our branch locations. You will need to provide a form of government issued identification. If your form of identification is current and readily available, opening an account is quick and easy.

What is the minimum opening deposit for a Checking Account? $25.00 is the minimum opening deposit for all First Eagle Checking Accounts.

If I open an account online, how is it funded? You can transfer funds from an existing First Eagle account, with your credit or debit card or from a checking or savings account at another financial institution. You’ll just need your account number and the bank routing number of the bank account you are transferring from.

What if I have bad credit or am on the ChexSystems list? A history of bad credit or excessive insufficient funds activity does not necessarily exclude you from opening an account. Visit a branch and speak to a Member Service Representative to see how we can meet your needs.

Is my credit report pulled when applying for an account? A credit inquiry is run as a standard part of the account opening process. It is recommended that you take this standard practice into consideration if you are in the process of applying for a loan or credit product.

Can I use a Checking Account instead of a savings to save my funds? You certainly can, but a savings account is a recommended to earn dividends. A savings account is a safe, easy way to save your funds and it only requires a minimum opening deposit of $5.00.

Are savings accounts free? You must maintain a minimum balance of at least $100 to maintain a free savings account, or a $2.00 monthly fee will apply. A primary Share Savings is required to open an account. To see any other applicable fees refer to our Fee Schedule.
