Checking Account Reconciliation
Here’s how to balance your checkbook.
Make sure your monthly checking statement matches your own records by reconciling your checking account regularly. Our tips and form help simplify this money task, so you can easily manage your accounts.
These days, most of us spend from our checking accounts with a mix of debit card payments, ATM cash withdrawals, online bill pay and paper checks. Plus, we might have money coming in from direct, cash or check deposits, transfers or person-to-person payment systems like Zelle®. Reconciling all of these deposits and withdrawals may seem like a big job, but in a few simple steps, we make it easy.
- Compare your monthly checking account statement to your check register, making sure each withdrawal and deposit match.
- Use our easy-to-follow account reconciliation form to help.
