Christmas Club Accounts

Start Saving today for next year's holiday season.  Deposit as much and as often as you'd like.  We'll mail your check with your 3rd quarter 2019 statement or deposit it into your Share Draft Account on October 1, 2019.

If you have a 2018 Christmas Club, your check is included with your September statement unless you requested a hold or transfer.  If your account was funded through direct deposit or payroll deduction, you will automatically begin a 2019 account unless we are notified otherwise.

Holiday Skip-A-Pay

We are once again offering qualifying borrowers the opportunity to skip* one payment on up to two loans from November 2018 - January 2019.  Applications must be received 14 days prior to your payment date.

*There is a $25 processing fee per loan skipped.  Offer is not available on Home Equity, Mini-Mortgage, Signature Line of Credit, and Holiday/Tax Time/Back to School Special Loans.  Loans must have originated 6 months prior to be eligible.  If recent data shows delinquency on the requested loan(s), we reserve the right to deny your application to Skip-A-Payment.  Loan interest will accrue and the maturity date of all loans affected by the program will be extended one month.

We understand that you may occasionally need to purchase more than $500.00 per day.  We can temporarily increase your daily limit in order to accommodate you.  Please realize that these limits are necessary to limit fraud and exposure to losses.

Our Debit Card Program is not live.  This means that deposits made via Home Banking are not immediatley available on your Debit Card.

Please call the office at 814-455-2270 to temporarily increase your daily POS limit or if you have any questions regarding availability of funds.

Visa Purchase Alerts

We highly recommend that our Debit Cardholders sign up to receive email alerts when they use their Visa Debit Card* for purchases.  These alerts help provide security by allowing members to identify potentially fraudulent activity and they provide a means for members to track spending.

  • Check eligibility by entering the first nine digits of your debit card.
  • Creat an account.

  • Choose which of the following three alerts you would like to enroll in:
  1. purchases reaching a certain dollar amount
  2. international purchases
  3. purchases made on the internet

*A qualified transaction is any transaction routed through Visa.
