Full Circle Checking
With Full Circle checking, keeping an account balance of $1,000 or more automatically earns you monthly dividends (aka free money). Plus, whether you do more banking with us or actively use your debit card, it’s easy to have the $7.50 monthly fee refunded to your account and enjoy every benefit of a checking account that pays for itself (and then some).
STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE.
When you’re ready to take your relationship with your checking account to the next level, Full Circle is here. The higher your balance, the more monthly dividends you’ll earn. To get started, all you need is a Life membership plus $25 to open your Full Circle checking account. And while there is a $7.50 monthly maintenance fee, we’ve designed this account to help you get that fee refunded each month. By meeting any one of the below criteria in any given month, you’ll receive a credit for your monthly maintenance fee:
- Use your Fortera Mastercard® debit card 15x per month. Recurring payments are included (hello, movie night in), but ATM transactions and cash advances don’t count.*
- Own an active Life loan or mortgage.
- Own an active Life credit card account.
