How To Balance Your Account
Diligence Pays Off
Balancing your checking account is vitally important. If you don’t keep an accurate record of money coming in versus money going out, you risk bouncing checks and losing credibility with people when you’re unable to carry through on a promise to pay. That’s a costly habit that damages your credit rating, too.
At the same time, you may miss out on great deals and valuable purchasing opportunities if your checking register shows you have less money than what is available in your PrimeWay Federal Credit Union account.
Either way, your life will be easier when you balance your account on a regular basis.
Tips To Achieving Balance (In Your Checking Account)
- Put money in before taking it out
- Keep track of every transaction
- Fill your transaction register with anticipated electronic transactions and fill in the dates as they occur
- Keep transaction receipts wrapped around your debit/ATM card to record in your register
Along with your paper register, you can also check your balance by calling PrimeWay Federal Credit Union, visiting one of our ATMs or logging into your account through our secure online banking system.
