3 The Combined Balance Option allows you to combine certain balances to avoid paying monthly service charges on your eligible checking account. The Combine Balance Option requires identical account ownership. You can avoid the monthly service charge on only one checking account by choosing the Combined Balance Option. The Option is activated on any day the checking account balance falls below the minimum amount required to avoid the monthly service charge. When that happens, the balance of the checking account will be combined with the lowest month-to-date minimum balance(s) in the flexed account(s) to determine if you meet the balance requirement.
