According to the Federal Reserve Act section 19, there are 2 types of accounts with the Credit Union: transactional accounts and non-transactional accounts. A transactional account is your share draft (checking) account. Your share (savings)account is a non-transactional account. Section 19 of the Federal Reserve Act limits the number of transactions that you can conduct using a non-transactional account (share or savings) to 6 per month. This limit is based on when the transaction is posted to your account, not when you authorize the transaction. The following transactions are limited to 6 per month using your share (savings) account: checks from your account, online/mobile banking transfers, automatic transfers ( including those for overdraft protection), transfers made over the phone, any preauthorized automatic withdrawal, and any checks to a third party from your shares (savings). If you exceed the 6 per month limit, you will receive a notice from us. If you continue to exceed the limit each month, we may reject your transaction or be forced to close your account. To avoid this situation, consider opening a share draft (checking) account. Your first 50 checks are free and no limits on transactions. We also have debit cards available once you have been approved for a checking account. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
The Supervisory Committee will be conducting an audit of accounts during the first quarter of 2024. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your account, please submit an inquiry to: Erin Shoemaker, Supervisory Chairperson, 2750 Grant Street, Lower Burrell, PA 15068.

Members must be set up with home banking first. If you do not have home banking, please contact our office and we can help get you set up with home banking.
As a reminder to our members, please remember to update any changes on your account as soon as possible. We may need to discuss your account or send out important information to you, but without correct account information we cannot do so. If we have mailed statements or correspondence and they are returned to us for an invalid address or as undeliverable, we may charge your account a $10 bad address fee. If you have moved, please stop in or call for an account change card to avoid any fee. When we get e-statements that are undeliverable, we will try to contact you to verify your email address.
As of July 1st, 2023, we have revised our dormant account policy. An account is considered dormant after 18 months of inactivity; dividends and fees do not count as activity. In order to keep your account active, we are asking members to perform one transaction (deposit/withdrawal) on your account per year. If you have multiple accounts, each account would require activity. Once an account reaches a dormant status, a $10 dormancy fee will be applied to the account monthly until the account is reactivated, closed, or reaches the three (3) year (36 months) threshold. At this point, the Credit Union must submit the remaining funds in the dormant account to the state of Pennsylvania.
The Credit Union has currently suspended taking any new real estate applications. We will post any changes as they occur. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our members.
