Top 5 reasons to love your TCF® checking account

All of our checking accounts include digital banking, a mobile app, mobile payments and other tools that make it easy to put your money to use.

  1. Digital banking is better than ever.

    Our free digital banking experience lets you bank online from a computer or mobile device. Use online bill pay, view account information, set your budget and more.

  2. Our mobile app lets you bank anytime.

    Deposit checks, use the quick glance balance feature to monitor your account and pay bills when convenient.

  3. Mobile payments let you pay with your phone.

    It’s easy to add your debit card to your phone or device and use it to make purchases.

  4. Security gives you peace of mind.

    Your checking account comes with a chip-enabled debit card. When you use it at a chip-enabled payment terminal, a unique code is generated that can’t be used again. This protects your card number and personal information.

  5. Your account is protected.

    Instantly lock your debit card to prevent new charges, right from your phone or computer, if it's lost. We also have zero fraud liability, which means you won’t be held responsible for fraudulent charges made with your card.
