We are sad to announce our CEO/MGR, Mary Halligan, is leaving the Credit Union. She has been with us since July of 1999. We are grateful for all her hard work over the years in bringing more services to our members as well as three successful mergers. Good luck in all your future endeavors, Mary! We will miss you!
If you were a former PATA member and had a Visa credit card with them, you should have received a new VISA card recently in the mail. You received this card to complete the conversion to Allegheny Kiski Postal FCU. As of July 2nd, 2022, your former PATA credit card will no longer work. You will need to activate the new card you received by July 2nd, 2022, in order to use it.
Cash apps have become a popular way to move money from one account to another. But just like any other online financial transaction, there are scammers and fraudsters working to take your money. In order to protect our members and the Credit Union from fraudulent activity, when using a cash app, the funds may not be immediately available to you. The day of the deposit, $200 will be made available to you, however, the remaining funds may not be available for 1-3 business days. This availability is the same for ATM deposits.
In August, the Credit Union issued new debit cards to replace existing cards. There are a few differences with the new cards. Daily limits are $500 for cash withdrawals and $1500 for Point of Sale transactions. There is also a limit of 10 transactions per day with your card. We put these limits in place to protect our members and the credit union against fraud.
If you need to change your pin #, please call 1-866-985-2273 from the primary phone # listed on your account. If you suspect fraud activity, please call 1-888-918-7313. If PSCU fraud dept. suspects fraud activity on your card, they may put a temporary block on the card until they can verify transactions with you.
As always, please keep your account updated with your current address and phone # so that we can contact you if need be and any card reissues will go to your correct address.
Remember to contact us if you will be traveling or spending out of your normal spending habits so we can put a memo on the account to avoid declines.
Effective July 1st, 2020, the credit union is required to provide the following:
- $225 for next day availability for all instances where it was previously required to provide a minimum of $200.
- In addition, the $5,000 availability requirements for holds on new accounts, large deposits, and repeat overdrafts will increase to $5,525.
- The $400 Rule has been increased to $450. On the day that funds become available for withdrawal, we may limit to $450 the amount of cash that the member may withdraw. This change was due to statutory inflationary requirements.
