First Chicago Corp. plans to announce today that it will offer abbreviated checking account statements with digitized images of canceled checks.

Many bankers believe these new statements can offer a competitive advantage, reduce mailing costs, and generate fee income. First Chicago estimates it will save $1.47 million over five years in mailing costs. The bank said it is too early to estimate the potential fee income.
