Online Balance Inquiry Fee

There may be a fee for checking your balance at an ATM owned by a different bank, so be sure you’re not paying to make a balance inquiry. Check your balance for free online and avoid this fee, which may be anywhere from 50 cents to two dollars. Almost all prepaid cards carry a balance inquiry fee, no matter which ATM you use, so try to avoid checking your balance at an ATM.
