Expecting a Tax Refund?

The IRS has the following reminders to taxpayers in regard to direct deposited tax refunds:

  • Refunds can be split into as many as three seperate accounts.  For example, a checking, a savings, and a retirement account.
  • Refunds should only be directly deposited into accounts that are in the taxpayer's own name, their spouse's name, or both if it's a joint account.
  • Refunds should not be directly deposited into an account in the tax return perparer's name.

To direct deposit your refund into your Credit Union account, use Routing Number: 243381065

Debit Card Reminders:

ATM Limit:  $250.00 per day

Purchases/Point of Sale (POS) Limit:  $500.00 per day

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.

Sign up by logging into:

usa.visa.com/pay-with-visa/featured-technologies/purchase-alerts.html
Follow these steps to enroll:

  • Check eligibility by entering the first nine digits of your debit card.
  • Creat an account.
  • Register your email address.  A verification email with a code will be sent to your email address.  Enter that code to confirm your email address.
  • 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.
