Required Checking Account Balance Minimum of $25,000 If balance dips below this minimum, a 1% monthly fee will be assessed for the account. $30 Outgoing Wire Transfer Fee A $30 thirty dollar fee will be charged for each outgoing wire transfer. 1.5% Foreign Currency Conversion Fee 1.5% of the total currency converted will be assessed per transaction.
$20 Stop Payment Fee A $20 stop payment fee will be assessed for each transaction. Up to five checks may be stopped at the same time for the same fee. Credit Card Fees A 1% fee is charged by the credit card company for withdrawing cash with a credit card, and annual fees currently 9% are charged on amounts owed.
