Introducing Northwest Secure™ Checking

Great Northwest Checking Got an Upgrade This Fall

  • Identity theft recovery services. This includes recovery for all types of ID theft, and reimbursement insurance.
  • Mobile device protection. Get cash for replacement or repair of your cell phone.

Northwest Secure checking offers all of these benefits for a low monthly fee of $4.00. It also checking gives you the chance to earn up to 0.30% APY* interest every month with:

  • Active enrollment in eBanking
  • Active enrollment in eStatements

If you didn't receive a letter, please give us a call to ensure we have the correct address on file.

On October 31, 2018, the Great Northwest checking account automatically upgraded to Northwest Secure checking.
