Ready to add custom checking account features to your account? Start by opening your checking account.  Stop by a local branch, call 1-800-724-3222 or open an account now online. If you open a checking account online, you can enroll in your Custom Add-ons after you’ve gone through the account opening process and arrive at the confirmation page.

*Custom Add-ons (except benefits relating to safe deposit boxes and Credit Score) will apply only to the associated personal checking account, and you will need the appropriate services and accounts to take advantage of the Custom Add-ons. For example, you will need an M&T ATM Card or M&T Debit Card for Custom Add-ons relating to ATM fees, and you will need to take additional steps to enroll in Credit Score, order checks, open and link an overdraft protection account and open a safe deposit box. Any fee for the Custom Add-ons chosen will be charged beginning on the last day of each monthly service charge cycle for your account, regardless of whether you take advantage of the Custom Add-on in a given month. Employees of M&T Bank and its affiliates receive Credit Score at no charge when linked to the M&T checking account into which the employee’s pay is directly deposited. MyChoice Plus Checking and MyChoice Plus Checking With Interest accounts qualify for 2 Custom Add-ons at no monthly subscription fee. MyChoice Premium Checking accounts qualify for 4 Custom Add-ons at no monthly subscription fee. These customers can enroll in additional Custom Add-ons for the subscription fees shown above.

If you enroll in Overdraft Protection with your M&T Visa® Credit Card, or have a linked overdraft line of credit, your overdraft transfers will accrue interest at the applicable APR stated in your credit card or line of credit agreement.  Please refer to your credit card or line of credit agreement for additional details.
