DEBIT CARDS
Credit Union members have access to their accounts through the ATM network. They offer 24 hour service, 7 days a week, for transactions including: deposits, withdrawals, transfers, and account inquiries.

You are eligible for a Debit card if you are a member in good standing.

Credit Union members may acquire a Master Money Debit Card by applying at the Credit Union or by requesting an application form. The Debit Card works like a check. Purchases are directly debited from your Share Draft Account. There is NO FEE if the card is used as a debit card.

The Master Money Debit Card can also be used as an ATM card.

The Credit Union will not charge for transactions made at any PNC Bank ATM machine. There will be a $1.00 fee for each transaction at any other ATM machine. The owner of the ATM may impose a surcharge fee.

Please note: There may be a delay before ATM or Debit Card transactions are posted to your account.
