Savings and Checking Accounts

Find the right banking tool for you that will assist you in managing your money and will keep it safe. San Mateo Credit Union offers benefits for SparkPoint participants who are interested in opening new bank accounts, including new start bank accounts for those who have been denied an account because of information provided by ChexSystems.

The Chex Systems, Inc. network is comprised of member Financial Institutions that regularly contribute information on mishandled checking and savings accounts to a central location. ChexSystems shares this information among member institutions to help them assess the risk of opening new accounts. ChexSystems only shares information with the member institutions and does not decide on new account openings. Contact the SparkPoint Center for more information or to schedule an appointment with a San Mateo Credit Union representative.
