Government Banking

Municipal Checking

Municipalities with a large number of account transactions per month, or those maintaining higher account balances should consider this account. You’ll receive a variable earnings credit which can offset some or all of your monthly service charge and per-item fees. With Municipal Checking, you can also have a Sweep Account option. This option is ideal for municipalities with a large number of transactions and higher balances looking to make the most of their account balances. The Sweep Account Option automatically sweeps excess funds into a high-interest investment account each night – then sweeps it back into your Municipal Checking account the next business day to cover checks and/or debits.

Municipal Statement Savings
