Do you have poor financial credit? Have you have found yourself on the ChexSystems database? Then you may be wondering how you will ever open another bank account. If you have poor financial credit, many banks will consider you a risk. This includes when you have bounced checks, kited checks, accrued NSF fees, or even had a negative balance for a specific amount of time.
Luckily, there are financial institutions that choose not to use ChexSystems as a method of screening customers. These financial institutions called ‘last chance banks’ or ‘non-ChexSystems banks’ provide services to customers with bad credit. These financial institutions accept you, knowing that you are a risk. While this can mean that they will require a deposit held in reserve, you should not have to pay for services that are normally free, such as making deposits or writing checks.
Texas has several financial institutions that are Non ChexSystems Banks. You may want to start with these and see if they can provide the services you are looking for.
Please note that the information about non chexsystems banks changes each year (even month). We cannot guarantee any of the banks listed won’t do a non chexsystems check (though at the time of compiling, these banks don’t require a chexsystems check). You will have to call the banks to see.
