What Bank Doesn't Use ChexSystems

Updated on June 19, 2013

Do you owe a bank money and are finding it impossible to open an account with another bank? You're not alone, there are tons of Americans in the same boat. Fortunately, there are some banks that do not use ChexSystems.

ChexSystems

Banks and credit unions report customers to ChexSystems if they are unable to collect money that is owed to them, this stays on your report for five years. When you go to open an account with a bank the majority of them will check your ChexSystems report. If you are found to have a report you will normally be denied an account with that bank. So, many people are left without access to a checking or savings account.


Dollar Bank

Although there are other banks that don't use ChexSystems, I have found that Dollar Bank is the best out there. They offer free money checking accounts with no minimum balance or service charges. They also have a free money savings account which also requires no minimum balance or service charges. The interest rate on their savings accounts is pretty good too. They offer free online banking and have numerous branches throughout the United States. You can apply online or at a local branch. Happy banking!

      Thanks for reading. It's hard once you are on the Chexsystems list so it's nice to know that there are banks that don't check with them.

      Never heard of this before, but definitely sounds like a great option. It's good that there are options out there like this one, and prepaid debit cards etc that don't require credit checks to have. Thanks for sharing this information.

      Thanks, it's very hard to find a bank that doesn't use this system. Some banks do offer second chance checking accounts but they charge fees monthly, whereas Dollar Bank does not and it's a normal account.
