Bank On Rapid City - Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use a checking account?
It is convenient, safe and less expensive than using a check cashing service.

What does it cost to cash my paycheck?
Nothing. It's free to cash your check when you have an account at a financial institution.

What if I had trouble with a bank account before?
You may still be eligible for an account by completing the national program CheckWise (see below),
a FREE education program. Don't let a bad experience prevent you from keeping more of your money.
Ask about a second chance account.
