Is Compass the right direction for you?
Answer these questions to see if you are a fit.
- Do you lack traditional forms of identification like driver’s license or passport? We accept consular ID cards, tribal member cards, and other government issued cards.
- Do you need paper checks? If the answer is no, Compass may be a fit.
- Do you want to spend only what you have in your account? Compass does not charge NSF fees, but there is no overdraft program associated so you can spend only what is in the account.
- Do you plan to keep between $0 and $1000 in the account? If you can keep a minimum of $100 in your account, we recommend our Evergreen checking account which waives the monthly maintenance fee with a $100 minimum account balance.
