    Paper Checks

    Due to recent issues with lost paper paychecks, we are encouraging our members to use a bank and direct deposit. If you currently receive a paper paycheck at work and do not participate in direct deposit, please pay close attention.


    There are many benefits to workers to using banks:


    1) It safeguards against theft and fraud because it reduces your vulnerability to discriminatory or predatory lending services and increases access to lower cost loan options.


    2) It makes basic finances more accessible, like using checks to pay bills or debit cards for transactions and ATM withdrawals.


    3) Using a bank establishes a credit history to increase the ability to have applications approved for competitive interest rates for credit cards and loans, rental housing, and car and home purchase (like the UFCW Mortgage program).


    4) Using a bank helps you plan for an emergency or long-term financial security in a safe, federally-insured savings vehicle that has the ability to gain interest.


    The First Convenience Bank branches inside Kroger stores are also offering a $20.00 incentive for you to open checking accounts with direct deposit. Please take advantage of this incentive and invest in your financial future and well-being.
