Checking FAQ

  • Can I open a checking account without opening a savings account?

    To change or reset your PIN, call our PIN Now line at 1.888.891.2435 (U.S.) or 206.467.1552 (International) and follow the instructions.  You will need to have your card handy.  You can also visit us at any of our locations for assistance with resetting your PIN.
  • Are checks included with my checking account?
    All members receive one free box of checks per year.
