Checking Accounts

Specialized checking accounts mean more extras where you need them the most. Low opening deposit? We’ve got it. Checking that pays you interest? We have that too.

1st Rate - Rewards Checking

Earns InterestMin to OpenMin to Earn InterestOnline BankingeStatements
$100 $100

The purpose of the account is to offer our customers the "rewards" of a higher rate on a checking account that is used like any other checking account, with certain expectations and requirements. Those requirements are:

  • Direct Deposit
  • Signing on to Online Banking at least once a month
  • Receiving eStatements
  • Having 15 or more POS transactions posted (and settled) to your account per statement cycle
  • Must be a Yuma County Resident to open  this account.

If account does not meet requirements during monthly cycle a .05% APY will be earned on entire balance. 3.00% APY* PAID ON BALANCES up to $25,000

Examples of expectations include deposits and withdrawals throughout the statement cycle, such as direct deposit of paychecks or Social Security checks, etc., along with POS debit transactions throughout the month of varying amounts at various retailers. This does not include transactions such as multiple small-dollar POS transactions at the end of the statement cycle in order to earn the higher APY, which would not be consistent with the design of the account. If this should happen, you will receive a courtesy letter from the bank, reminding you of the intended purpose of the account and that it may be subject to closure at the bank's discretion.
