    Also what about fees for transferring funds to a different domestic account?

      Hi Jarrod,

      Thank you for leaving a question. Transferring funds to a different domestic account usually is free of charge. CUA charges some and very minimal transaction fees if you transfer funds overseas.
      Hop this helps!

    What about stuff like account statements? Does it cost money to request those?

      Hi Jarrod,

      Thanks for contacting finder! If you want to request for account statements, this is free of charge. For statements, these usually are given every four months. If you prefer to receive statements monthly or quarterly, they can set this up for you. Just call 133 282 or visit your local CUA branch.
      Hope this help!
