SAFE Checking Account Optimizer: Find out in seconds if you have the right account for your lifestyle!

I had a favorite pair of jeans in college - they fit me like a glove and I found a way to wear them to just about anything I did back then! But with time, many launderings, settling in to a new career in a new city, and my slightly increased waistline, those jeans lost their luster, and didn't hold the same special place that they used to in my wardrobe. You could say that checking accounts are a lot like that pair of jeans - things change over time and that simple checking account you had in college may not match your more complex needs today. As your life, career, and family grow, your checking account needs to keep up. Taking a fresh look at your current account and exploring what other choices may be available can help you keep your finances in line with your lifestyle.

While fee-free checking accounts can offer some optional free services, premium accounts can give you extra perks beyond what you get with a regular account. But there's a trade-off: they often require more money to open. So with that in mind, SAFE would like to introduce you to our checking account products, but more importantly, to our Checking Account Optimizer! With our Optimizer, you can find out in mere seconds which SAFE account might be your best fit! You can get started today by answering a few simple questions, or read below for more details about our product offerings:
