In order to protect the credit union and members from check card fraud, we periodically must block certain geographic areas or merchants that are experiencing high instances of fraud.

Important Notice

To protect you against fraud, the purchase limit for the personal check card is $1,500 per day. To further protect you, we have implemented Check Card Fraud Alerts. For your convenience, here are our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the program.

If you are traveling to a foreign country and want to use your check card, please contact us and we can ensure that your card will be accessible while traveling. In order to safeguard the funds in your credit union account, we strongly suggest that you use traveler's checks, a MasterCard® Travel Card or a credit card, such as the UNITED SA Platinum MasterCard® to make purchases when traveling abroad.
