Travel Safety Tips
When traveling this summer, keep your information and identity safe and secure!
- Alerts. Follow account balances, watch your debit and credit card transactions. If you suspect something unusual, contact us right away.
- ATM Access. Be comfortable with the ATM’s location, and if it’s night-time, make sure it’s well-lit and easily accessible.
- Avoid Carrying Cash. When traveling, use your credit union debit or credit card instead. Transactions are protected, and there is no chance of losing your cash.
- eStatements & Alerts. These tools help you to monitor your accounts and balance information – so you can watch for fraudulent activity. They can also assist with spending decisions when you’re traveling.
- Monitor Your Debit and Credit Cards. Sign up for our mobile card control options – which lets you turn your card on and off.
- Mobile & Online Banking. Monitor your account activity, make payments, view transaction history and more.
