Educate your children so that they do not give personal information online. Make sure they only communicate with people that they know.

BRING US YOUR UNROLLED COINS ONLY 2% FEE ROLL OVER YOUR HIGH INTEREST CARDS TO A CREDIT UNION CREDIT CARD SAVE ON INTEREST CHARGES WITH YOUR CREDIT UNION CREDIT CARD Credit card convenience doesn’t have to be expensive. Whether you use your credit cards every day or once in a blue moon, use them wisely to avoid paying unnecessary interest and service charges. COMPARE CHARGES BEFORE PURCHASING Choose your credit cards carefully and look closely at the terms because there’s a lot more to credit card costs than interest charges. You’ll also want to compare grace periods, annual fees, variable rates and transaction fees. We do not charge an annual fee, a cash advance fee, or a balance transfer fee. CARRY FEWER CREDIT CARDS The more credit cards you have, the more charges you’ll pay. Even if you use credit cards frequently, one or two major credit cards should be enough. Select the credit cards with the best terms, and cancel the others. You’ll have fewer payments and less interest each month. And, you’ll reduce the risk of credit card theft or loss. If you are carrying balances with several credit cards, switch to a money-saving credit union credit card, pay off your other card balances, and start reducing interest charges right away. SAVE, BORROW, ENJOY AT YOUR CREDIT UNION. BALANCE TRANSFER AUTHORIZATION FORM I (We) request that the Credit Union make payment(s) to the payee(s) and in the amount(s) as designated below.

IS YOUR ACCOUNT INACTIVE? If your share savings or checking account has been inactive for several months, you may eventually be charged an Inactive Account Fee. Your account is inactive after 12 months without a transaction such as a deposit or withdrawal to the account. We will not assess a fee unless your account remains inactive for 36 months. The fee assessed is $5.00 at year 3, 4 & 5. If your account remains inactive for a period of 5 years, we are then required by law to relinquish your funds to the state of Pennsylvania and close your account. You can avoid the inactivity fee by making regular deposits into your account (or at least once a year). We offer Direct Deposit and Payroll Deductions/ Deposits for your convenience.
