VISA cuCheck Card

Our VISA cuCheck Card provides you with a convenient and secure way to make purchases from your Credit Union Share Draft Account without the hassle of writing a check. Accepted at merchants worldwide, you can use our debit card wherever VISA cards are accepted.  You'll get a receipt for each purchase for accurate recordkeeping, and each transaction will be detailed on your monthly statement.

The card can also be used like an ATM Card at any participating network ATM, as well as at thousands of other locations around the world. You can receive cash, transfer funds and do balance inquiries.

The cuCheck Card is available to qualifying members in good standing who have a Credit Union Share Draft Account with overdraft protection. There is no charge to have the card. You may withdraw up to $250 per day from ATM machines. You are permitted up to four (4) ATM withdrawals per calendar month at no charge. There will be a charge of $1.50 for each withdrawal over this limit. Regular overdraft fees of $20.00 will apply. You may also receive cash back with a purchase at participating merchants.

You are protected in cases of fraud, theft or unauthorized use of your card. You have zero liability if unauthorized use is reported within two (2) business days of discovery. After that, liability is capped at $50.00.

To report a lost or stolen credit card or to activate a new card, please call (800) 543-5073.
