Debit Card Information
It looks like a credit card, but it’s not. It’s convenient, fast, and safe. One card for shopping and getting cash. Accepted wherever you see the Mastercard logo.
To be eligible for a debit card you must be 18 years old or 16 & 17 years old with an adult joint owner, have a checking account in good standing, be current on all Credit Union obligations and have an established credit report showing credit worthiness.
When you use your Debit Card, you access your checking account without actually writing a check. When shopping, simply present the card to the cashier and sign your receipt just as you would with a credit card. Your purchases will be deducted right from your checking account. When given a choice by the retailer to process your transaction as a credit (requiring your signature) or a debit (requiring your PIN) you should choose the credit option. We offer an unlimited number of debit card transactions. So remember, even though you choose credit, it will be deducted from your checking account and you avoid ATM transaction fees. Your debit card is also your ATM card.
