The survey found that the vast majority of stand-alone checking accounts in credit unions – 98% – are either free or very close to it.

This means that credit union accounts that have commissions allow you to avoid those monthly payments if you meet certain criteria, such as having a companion account, subscribing to a direct deposit, or maintaining a certain amount of transactional activity.
