3. Axos Bank’s Golden Checking

Axos Bank’s Golden Checking account is for those 55 years of age and older.

It has no minimum-balance requirements but does require a $50 initial minimum deposit. It pays interest — 0.20% APY, as of the time this article was written.

Other perks include:

  • Free checks
  • No monthly maintenance fee
  • ATM fee reimbursements of up to $8 per month for domestic ATM transactions

Axos Bank is an online-only bank.

Other options

Some smaller banks also offer checking accounts for older customers. So, you may want to ask small banks in your area if they offer one. For example, the following accounts are offered by small banks to customers age 55 and older:

  • Senior Select checking from First National Bank, which has locations in Texas
  • Q Crown Plus checking from Queensborough National Bank and Trust Co., which has locations in Georgia
  • Silver Wings Checking from Travis Credit Union, which has locations in California

Of course, just because you’re 55 or older, that doesn’t mean the best checking account for you will have a word like “senior” in its name. So, also consider “regular” checking accounts. For help finding an interest-bearing checking account, try out Money Talks News’ account search tool.
