Five Checking Account Options
Enjoy the convenience of Visa debit access, free online/mobile banking, direct deposit, unlimited check writing and your first 12 checks free. Depending on your financial lifestyle, choose the SIUECU checking account that’s right for you:
VISA® DEBIT CARDS
Check your balance, make deposits, withdraw funds or complete purchases quickly and securely – a debit card from SIUE Credit Union offers the convenience of a debit card and security of an ATM card all in one!
- Your card comes with built-in EMV chip technology – currently the most advanced level of card security!
- Designed to prevent fraudulent activity, the EMV chip gives you greater protection when you use your card at a chip-activated terminal. With every purchase, the embedded chip generates a single-use code which, unlike your signature, is virtually impossible to counterfeit.
- Printing of an EMV chip card is available at the Credit Union main office.
- Transactions are deducted from your checking account automatically
- Use your card at thousands of ATMs and merchants worldwide
- Swipe and sign to enjoy the greatest purchasing power and security
- Save money by replacing your checks with debit card use
And, best of all, there is no monthly charge for debit card access!
VISA® PURCHASE ALERTS
With Visa Purchase Alerts, SIUE CU members can register to be notified of transactions in real-time, to immediately identify potentially fraudulent activity.

VISA® ACCOUNT UPDATER
Information Affecting Your Visa Debit & Credit Cards
We are now required to forward updated card information (expiration date, name change, etc.) to merchants who have your current information and participate in the Visa Account Updater (VAU) service. Advantages to the cardholder include no interruption of service from service providers and no missed or late payments when your card has been set up to automatically pay recurring bills. Please note: not all merchants participate in VAU, so check with your merchants the next time your card number or expiration date changes to ensure recurring payments continue to be charged to your account.
If you wish to opt out of this service, please sign and date a letter indicating that you wish to opt out of VAU and provide to the credit union either via email, mail or fax.
