What fees are associated with my card?

TruGrocer Federal Credit Union does not charge any fees. You may, however, encounter fees when you ask for cash advances at ATM's or other financial institutions. Look for signs on the outside of ATM machines and/or ask the financial institution's representative before making your transaction.

How can I avoid fraud on my credit union VISA?

As the use of plastic payment methods increase, the potential for fraud also goes up. Plastic cards are easily stolen, counterfeited, and then resold.  Even a discarded receipt from a credit card transaction often contains enough information to perform fraudulent Internet transactions.  Help reduce your exposure to credit card fraud by following these simple rules: 

DO...

  • Sign your plastic cards with permanent ink immediately upon receipt
  • Commit your PIN to memory
  • Carry only the cards you plan to use
  • Store unused cards in a secure, locked place
  • Open your statement promptly and reconcile your account
  • Review all of your card transactions carefully and report anything unusual immediately
  • Take receipts with you and/or tear them up before they are thrown away
  • Routinely check your credit report for any unusual or unrecognizable activity
  • Notify the Post Office to put a hold on your mail when you’re out of town or, arrange for a trusted friend  to collect your mail each day

DON'T...

  • Loan your cards to anyone
  • Write your card number on a personal check
  • Give pertinent personal financial information, such as account numbers, Social Security Number or PIN over the phone
  • Allow your card to be taken out of your sight during a sales transaction
  • Keep your PIN written down in your wallet
