A modern approach to checking, PenFed’s Access America checking represents what its members wanted in a checking account.
“We’re excited to be able to deliver a new checking option to our members,” said Kevyn Myers, executive vice president and chief operating officer with PenFed. “Our members have been asking for a low-cost checking account that includes rich features such as dividends on deposits, free online bill payment, and identity theft protection. We listened, and today we proudly introduce the Access America account.”
