Second Chance Checking Account

Have you ever been denied a checking or savings account due to bad credit or past problems with ChexSystems and TeleCheck? The Peoples Cash Solutions Second Chance Checking Account is the answer for you! Peoples Cash Solutions and Peoples Bank will open a real FDIC insured Second Chance Checking Account for you even if you have bad credit or have been reported to ChexSystems or TeleCheck in the past (except where fraudulent activity has been reported). A Second Chance Checking Account erases the inconvenience of not having a checking account and/or being forced to use fee-intensive alternatives.

Account Features

Debit MasterCard

Set up direct deposit with your employer and avoid paying check cashing fees. Once you have enrolled in direct deposit, your employer will electronically deposit your paycheck into your fresh start bank account for you.

This allows you to withdraw your money at any ATM, or write checks for your payments and purchases. This process will also allow you to access your paycheck whenever you need it and avoid hunting for a check cashing vendor that will charge you a fee to cash it. If you choose not to enroll in direct deposit, you can simply mail or transfer funds to your checking account anytime and utilize your debit MasterCard or checkbook. Your debit MasterCard is covered by MasterCard Zero Liability* for unauthorized use.

Personal Checkbook

Safety, security, and proof of sanity, all in your pocket. With a Second Chance Checking Account, you can safely carry checks rather than a roll of cash in your pocket, keeping you safe and your friends from asking what you do for a living.

The benefits of a checking account are endless. From the safety of not carrying cash to having a canceled check as proof of payment, having a Second Chance Checking Account gives you options. How many times have you opened your wallet only to discover there’s no cash? Your personal checkbook is a convenient way to access and spend your money even when your spouse or kids have emptied your wallet.

Establishing credit can be difficult without a checking account. Whether it’s a house, car or other means of credit you hope to attain, a well-maintained checking account is essential to obtaining credit and overcoming bad credit.

Paying bills in person with cash is a hassle. The traffic to get to your location and the long lines are reason enough to use checks to pay your bills. With a checkbook you can pay your bills through the mail and take back your time.

Does it seem like your cash goes much faster than you want it to? Having a checking account and using checks can help you budget your money and stretch your payday further. A checking account allows you to record and see where your money goes after payday. These allow you to better budget your expenses and income, as well as have a proof of payment when you pay bills. Checks are also available with carbonless copies of the original check, making it even easier to know exactly where your money went.
