FAQs about Complete Checking

Members Choice often receives a message up to two days before your direct deposit to let us know that the money is on the way. When this happens, we can reduce the extra processing time to get your money in your hands sooner.
Early Pay is a feature only available through Complete Checking! If you would like access to this feature you may convert your current checking account with this PDF form request over to Complete Checking or open a new checking account.
Nope! Early Pay is a free, automatic feature for Members Choice Complete Checking accounts. You don’t have to pay a fee to get paid early.

Possibly. There are a few factors that impact the delivery of your direct deposit. You might get your direct deposit between two days earlier and on your regularly scheduled payday. Here are some reasons why you might not receive your deposit early:

  • You recently set up direct deposit for the first time
  • Your deposit type is not eligible, such as a bank-to-bank transfer
  • There’s a payroll system issue from your payer
  • You reached the transaction limit or monthly deposit dollar limit for early processing
  • Early direct deposits also depend on timing—your payer must provide payment details on time so the deposit can process early. If your deposit doesn't arrive early, expect it to arrive on your scheduled payday
To sign up for direct deposit, please contact your employer's payroll department. You will need to provide them with the routing number 313083196 and your 13 digit account number. If your employer requires documentation for initial set-up, you may provide them with a voided check or download the Direct Deposit Instructions Form (PDF).
You may access your account 24/7 via Online Banking, Mobile Banking and the Audio Response system. You may also speak to a live representative by calling 281.398.9900. Please be advised that when calling outside of regular business hours, live representatives have limited account access.

You can retrieve a free copy of your account eStatement through Online Banking. If you are not set up for eStatements,
  1. Login to online banking
  2. Select eDocs from the Accounts menu
  3. Select the Delivery Preference you would like to change – either all accounts or just select accounts
  4. Select save
  5. Review and accept to the site terms
If you have questions, please contact Member Services at 281.398.9900 or toll free 800.753.2428, or stop by one of our branches.

*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. National Checking Interest Rate data as of June 20, 2023.

1 Dividend Rates: To receive the stated dividend rate for a particular monthly qualification cycle, you must receive monthly eStatements, at minimum ten (10) debit card purchases per month must have posted and maintain an aggregate minimum direct deposit of $150.00 to this account per month. If account requirements are not met, the dividend rate on the entire balance is .0% for that monthly cycle.

Complete Checking accounts are Tiered Rate accounts. For these accounts, the specified Dividend Rate for a tier will apply only to the portion of the account balance that is within that tier. The annual percentage yields, which vary depending on the balance in the account, are shown for each tier.

2 Debit Cashback Rewards: If the account qualifications are met for a monthly qualification cycle for the Complete Checking account (monthly eStatements, initiate a minimum of (10) debit card purchases per month, and maintain an aggregate minimum direct deposit of $150.00 to this account per month), you will be refunded .10% of the amount of debit card purchases posted to your account during that cycle. There is no limitation to the amount of cash back you receive in any Monthly Qualification Cycle.

3 Early Pay: Early pay is not dependent upon the account qualifications noted above. At our sole discretion, we may make your money available to you up to two days before we receive the funds from the payor. Early availability of direct deposits is dependent on the timing of your payor’s payment instructions and/or fraud prevention overlays. These limitations may be modified at our sole discretion without advance notice. We do not guarantee early availability of any direct deposits, and eligibility of a direct deposit for early availability may change between pay periods. Any direct deposit not posted early will be made available according to our Funds Availability schedule. We reserve the right to discontinue the service at our sole discretion and without notice.

4 ATM Fee Rebates: For any Complete Checking account, if you have met your qualifications during the monthly qualification cycle (monthly eStatements, at minimum ten (10) debit card purchases per month must have posted and maintain an aggregate minimum direct deposit of $150.00 to this account per month), we will reimburse you for ATM fees imposed during the monthly qualification cycle by our institution and other U.S. financial institutions. The maximum ATM fee rebate is $25 for one qualification cycle. ATM fee rebates will be transferred to your checking account. If you believe that you have not been reimbursed the correct amount, please contact us. We must hear from you no later than 30 days after the statement cycle when the reimbursement was applicable.
