Personal Checking Accounts
What is a Freedom Checking account?
The Freedom Checking account is a transaction account that allows you to move money electronically, but not by writing checks. Paper checks cannot be written on this account and cannot be ordered at account opening. All types of electronic payments can be made on the account including debit card, bill pay, Zelle®, and ACH or automatic debits to the account (recurring or one-time).
You can make withdrawals from your account through an ATM or an over-the-counter withdrawal at a JMB branch. Deposits can be made through direct deposit, mobile deposit, wire transfers, ACH credit, or at a JMB branch (paper checks may be deposited).
What are the account limitations for Freedom Checking?
We require customers to enroll in and agree to e-Statements within 30 days of account opening; paper statements are not available on this account. When the account is opened, the e-Statement delivery method is the automatic default as a part of the initial account set-up in the system and cannot be changed. The customer will still need to access OLB and enroll in e-Statements in order to view their statements electronically.
What happens if I write a check under my Freedom Checking Account?
If a check is presented for payment on this account, it will be returned unpaid, even if there is sufficient money in the account. The item will hit the UIR daily report and be returned unpaid as “Refer to Maker.” If you decide that you would like to write checks on the account at a later time, the account must be converted to another JMB checking account of your choice.
What is Supreme Checking?
A personal checking account with a rate of interest that applies to customers who meets at least two of the following requirements:
- Maintain a monthly direct deposit of at least $500.00 from a paycheck, pension, Social Security or other eligible regular monthly income.
- Enroll account in monthly electronic statements including Online Banking and e-Statements.
- Make (8) electronic payments from the account. A qualifying electronic payment can be a combination of any of the following: bill payment, Zelle payment, debit card (POS) transaction, ACH payments or automatic debit to the account. ATM transactions, imaged checks, returned items, interest, maintenance fees and service charges do not count toward the transaction requirements.

RTP also provides improved communication between the payer and payee by giving the payer the option to include additional information like remittance data with the transaction.

All Real-Time Payment transactions move directly through banking channels and are protected by bank security measures.
