Second Chance Checking Accounts in Ohio
MySecondChanceChecking provides you with a free directory of local banks and credit unions that do not use ChexSystems or may be providing second chance checking accounts in Ohio. These are real FDIC insured banks and NCUA insured credit unions that are offering real checking accounts with check writing privileges.
To increase your chances of acceptance, we recommend that you pay all outstanding debts to all banks or credit unions that you owe money to. We understand that this may be expensive, but this shows the prospective bank that you have worked to honor your debts and will make them feel more secure about doing business with you.
While the banks have been reported to either work with consumers listed in ChexSystems or Early Warning Services or not use one of the account verification services, MySecondChanceChecking does not make any promises or guarantees about your ability to get a checking account at any of the banks, credit unions or other financial institution that is listed on our site.
Non ChexSystems Banks in Ohio
100% Guaranteed Opportunities
If your unsure about your ability to get a checking account or are looking for a temporary banking alternative until you can get an account at a local bank or credit union, then you should be checking out the available prepaid options. While some people look down upon prepaid cards, you should realize that they offer 100% guaranteed approval and as long as you choose the right card, can be a better deal than any account most banks offer.
My Second Chance Checking highly recommends the Rush prepaid debit card. Our reasoning behind this recommendation is due to their longevity in the prepaid market, the FDIC insurance (just like local banks) and free online bill pay to help you manage your money and make sure your bills are paid on time. However, the one thing we like best about Ready Debit is the fact that they do not nickle and dime you every time you turn around. In fact, the monthly fee is only $5.95 (Yearly cost of only $71.40 – Compare to banks like 5th 3rd, US Bank, BB&T and others) Take a look at just a few of the benefits offered by Rush below –
- No ChexSystems or Early Warning Services checks
- FREE online bill pay
- No credit check or bank account required (ID verification required)
- No overdraft fees
- No minimum balance required
- 100% Guaranteed Approval (after ID verification)
- Monthly fee of only $5.95 (Rush Unlimited Plan)
