You can link your existing checking, savings, and brokerage accounts at thousands of financial institutions nationwide to a new Max Checking account, that integrates seamlessly into Max and opens in as little as 60 seconds.

Max Checking is an FDIC-insured checking account that is fully integrated into Max and has no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. With Max Checking, you can also earn reimbursement of your Max membership fees, up to $200/year.

Max Checking is powered by Customers Bank, Member FDIC #34444.

Alternatively, you can link your existing checking account at some of the largest banks in the country directly to Max.

Linking your existing checking account helps you to maintain a constant checking account balance from month to month. 

You’ll set a Target Balance -- the amount of funds that you would like to remain in your checking account. If your checking account balance exceeds your Target Balance at the time of your monthly Max optimization, Max will propose that you sweep excess cash to your higher-yielding online savings accounts; if your checking balance is lower than your Target Balance, Max will propose that you move funds from your online savings accounts back into your checking account to restore your checking account to your Target Balance.
