  1. If you’ve been denied access to a bank account, you can appeal the decision. If additional possibilities exist, think about them before making a decision. It’s frustrating to get rejected for a bank account, but it occurs. Fortunately, you can figure out why you were rejected and take advantage of other options.

    Chex Systems Information

    Chex Systems is a credit reporting company governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. It conducts a thorough credit check for banks and credit unions, just as the three big national credit bureaus do when you apply for a personal loan or credit card. Most financial institutions require a Chex Systems report when opening an account.

    Your Chex Systems report includes your bank and credit union deposit accounts. You’ll be able to view the particular reasons why your account was closed in the past. When you apply for a checking or savings account, the bank or credit union that offers it will run your Chex Systems report. If you’ve ever had any reservations about traditional bank accounts, you might want to reconsider.

    What to do with your Chex Systems report and how to use it?

    Once every 12 months, you can get a free copy of your Chex Systems report from the Chex Systems website. The 12-month limit does not apply to a complimentary copy you can get if your bank account has been denied. Online, by phone, by mail, or by fax are all options for submitting requests. After the agency receives your request, your report should come within five business days. Obtain a copy of the report and examine it for anything that could affect your ability to open a bank account.


    Your report may contain incorrect information. You have the legal right to protest the situation at any time. You’ll be on your path to getting compensation if you file a grievance with the bank or credit union right away. Chex Systems, on the other hand, will contact the source for you if you so desire. The agency usually completes its investigation within 30 days of receiving your complaint (21 days if you live in Maine). To avoid any needless delays, submit all of your supporting documents ahead of time to allow the investigators time to review them.
