What is a Safe Debit Account?

It’s a check-less checking account, an alternative to traditional checking. Deposits, withdrawals and payments can be made similar to any other U.S. Bank deposit account.

The Safe Debit Account is suitable for those who want a debit card but don’t need to write checks. It is particularly suitable as a joint account with a minor.
