Fresh Start Checking

Pittsburgh is known for its comebacks. The Steelers struggled for 40 years before winning their first championship. The steel mills closed, but our region found a way to rebound. You could be next. If you've had a financial setback, we've got a checking account that can help get you back on your feet.

Maybe it was the crazy economy. Or a family crisis. Or a health scare. There are any number of possible reasons why you may have written checks with insufficient funds in your account, or had some other financial missteps.

At Parkview Community FCU, we believe you deserve a second chance. That's why we designed our Fresh Start Checking - so people have the opportunity to "start over" with their finances. You'll pay a small monthly fee, but otherwise enjoy most of the benefits of our regular checking accounts, ranging from online and mobile banking to Visa debit card use.

And if you show us you have things under control once again -- and we're pretty sure you will -- you'll be eligible to upgrade to our Basic Checking or CheckingPLUS accounts.
