Amplify Credit Union receives certification from Bank On for safe and affordable fee-free banking

Amplify Credit Union is known across Central Texas for its groundbreaking banking products, and now, Amplify has earned a national certification from the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund for meeting the Bank On National Account Standards for 2023-2024. The national account standards, co-created by consumer advocates, recognize accounts that ensure low cost, high functionality, and consumer safety— and features that at Amplify, we provide to all of our members.

Amplify’s fee-free checking account includes no monthly cost, no overdraft or insufficient fund fees, the ability to easily pay bills and make purchases, and federal deposit insurance. We offer this product to everyone digitally and also in each of Amplify‘s branches across Central Texas.

“At Amplify, we know the importance of providing high quality products and services and we’re dedicated to ensuring our members feel valued,” Kendall Garrison, chief executive officer of Amplify Credit Union, said. “This certification is important because it recognizes our approach to innovative business practices, such as our fee-free banking services, that directly benefit our members and the greater community.”

“We’re dedicated to ensuring our members feel valued”
