When will the name change take effect?
We will officially change our name to United Texas Credit Union effective April 1, 2017.
Over the next few months, you’ll see changes related to our correspondence, marketing and signage. We have maintained the right to do business as (d.b.a) United SA Credit Union. Your paperwork may reflect United SA Credit Union throughout our transition to United Texas Credit Union.
What will you need to do in anticipation of this change?
You will not need to do anything. All of our products and services will work as they always have. Your account information will remain the same. In the next few months, you’ll receive updated checks and credit cards when they are reordered.
What else will change?
While our name is changing, you can rest assured that what won’t change is our commitment to you. Your support has enabled this change.
Is the name changing because you’ve been acquired?
No, this change is not the result of a purchase or merger. Our members continue to be our only owners. The credit union will continue to operate the same way, under the same Board of Directors and employees you know and trust.
Why United Texas Credit Union?
United Texas Credit Union is a name that is more reflective of our geographically expanded field of membership.
Is the credit union in trouble financially?
No! We are the same credit union with the same employees and board members - but with a new name. Our capital remains strong at 8.74%.
Is my money still safe?
Absolutely! Members’ funds are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. In order to offer our members even more coverage at $250,000 per account, we recently conducted a member vote to convert to private deposit insurance. The voting period ended on March 23, 2017. As soon as we know the results of the vote, we will let members know what this means to them in a separate communication.
Who is responsible for this name change?
Your Board of Directors, along with senior management, saw greater importance in changing the credit union name to a name that is more representative and inclusive of our geographically expanded field of membership.
I have more questions. Who can answer them?
Please feel free to make a general inquiry in one of several ways:
Will my account numbers change?
Your account number(s) will stay the same. Please continue to use your current United SA Credit Union checks, check card, loan payment coupons and/or MasterCard credit card until they expire or until it's time to re-order. United Texas Credit Union will start to appear later this year on any future checks, cards, etc. that you order.
Will my direct deposit or automatic electronic transfers need to be changed?
Your direct deposits and electronic transfers are sent to the credit union using our routing number of 314088860. This will not change. Your account number will also remain the same, so there’s nothing to change.
Do I need to notify payees if I’m set up on E-Bills online bill payment?
No changes are needed. You may conduct your online bill payment transactions as usual. Any automatic payments you have set up will process as usual.
Can I still deposit checks that are made payable to United SA Credit Union? How long will you be able to accept these deposits?
Yes. We have reserved the right to continue to do business as (d.b.a.) United SA Credit Union and can accept deposits in that name for the foreseeable future.
Will I need a new check, credit, or ATM card? Will my PIN change?
Your current cards will continue to work as usual.
Will I need new checks? Can I use my old checks?
Please continue to use your existing checks. They clear your account using the routing number located at the bottom of your checks. Checks with United SA Credit Union will continue to be accepted and clear. Later this year, when you order new checks they will be updated to United Texas Credit Union.
Can I still use Shared-Branches and CO-OP ATMs?
Yes, absolutely. Our relationship with the service center network that allows shared branch and free ATM transactions will not change.
Will the website change?
The new URL will be utxcu.com. To ensure you have access during this transition, either web address will direct you to the current website and E-Teller. We will provide ongoing updates throughout 2017 to reflect the new name and brand.
Will your e-mail address stay the same?
Our e-mail address will remain the same for the time being, but we will change it once we change our website address. We will give you notice well in advance of changing it to our new utxcu.com address.
Will E-Teller and mobile banking change? Will my login information change?
Your online and mobile banking will not change and your login information will not change.
Will I need to download a new app?
No, you will not. Any updates will be pushed out automatically to you as an update through your app store.
Will I continue to have access to credit union financing when I visit an automobile dealership?
Yes. This name change affects none of our dealer relationships. To ensure a smooth transition, your paperwork may have United SA Credit Union on it throughout our transition to United Texas Credit Union.
How will fees, loan rates, and deposit rates be impacted by the name change?
Our name change will have no impact on our rates and fees. As always, we will continue to monitor our rates and fees. They do fluctuate in response to market conditions though.
Will my credit report be affected by this name change?
The name change will have no affect on your credit score. Loans opened or closed prior to June 1, 2017 will continue to report as United SA Credit Union. Loans opened on or after June 1, 2017 will report as United Texas Credit Union.
Do I need to make changes to my auto and property insurance?
