The Surprises You Want In
A Checking Account
When it comes to checking accounts, ours are pretty exciting. At Grow, we think giving you a choice of accounts is pretty cool. Each account is made for the way you manage your money. There’s Checkless Checking.1 Yes, checkless. And CashBack Checking,2 which is exactly as awesome as it sounds. But those aren’t the only surprises. Both accounts come with a Grow Visa® debit card and free services like more than 70,000 surcharge-free ATMs across our network,3 free mobile and online banking, and free direct deposit.
Grow CashBack Checking
Our checking pays you! You’ll earn a little dividend, and an extra 5 cents with every qualifying swipe of your Grow Visa debit card.
Grow Checkless Checking
Checking without checks? We have the technology! Checkless Checking offers a simple, basic way to keep track of your spending, without checks or non-sufficient funds fees.
Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an account we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Grow Checking Accounts are subject to ChexSystems® approval.
1To be eligible for a Grow Checkless Checking Account, you must receive one monthly deposit via direct deposit, ATM deposit or mobile deposit, and complete a minimum of five Grow Visa debit card transactions each month. Qualified Visa debit card transactions include signature or PIN- based point-of-sale purchases, bill payment transactions made with your Grow Visa debit card, and online purchases.

No NSF (Non-Sufficient Funds) fees will be charged on this account. To avoid overdrawing your account, transactions will be declined and returned unpaid when you don’t have sufficient money in your account. You cannot use paper checks on this account. Any check written will be returned unpaid, even if you have sufficient money in your account.

How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
