I keep this account for several reasons, the main one is when I return to LaPorte and Indiana, I have easy access to accounts. This is my spare account and have been pleased with the one on one business transactions I have enjoyed for the past 10 years.Read More

I feel Purdue Ferderal has very good Checking Account and debit card transactions. It has always gone off without any glitches.  I don't have to keep a minimum balance in my account;  I'm able to use it to the last dime.  I don't have to have overdraft protection with Purdue Federal's Checking Account whereby they could put me on that and charge me interest without my say so.Read More
