Services


Payroll Deduction

You can have a portion of your paycheck sent to the credit union and distributed into any of the above savings accounts. You can also have your loan payment paid through payroll deduction. All of our school districts send a semimonthly payroll deduction. Some payroll deductions are sent via paper check and are not always posted on the exact day you are paid, however some are wired or electronic and are posted to your account the same day. If you wish to change your payroll deduction, click on “payroll deduction form” and you can download a PDF file which you can then print and send to the credit union office.


Direct Deposit

You can have your net paycheck, including Social Security and Pension checks, electronically sent to your Regular Share or Share Draft account. These funds are available the day you get paid.


VISA DEBIT Cards

You may have a Visa Debit card if you have an active checking account or savings account. You may use this card anywhere that Visa is accepted only if you have a checking account. The purchases will come directly out of your checking account. Regular or Summer Savings accounts can be linked to this card for withdrawal purposes only. Daily limits range from  $500 for purchases and another $300 to $500 for withdrawal.  Higher limits available upon request and approval.
