MECU has always worked diligently to improve services to our members over the years. In the last two years we have upgraded our Debit Card and Home Banking programs to real time environments and have added Mobile Banking. These upgrades come with a price and there are a couple of ways users of these products can help lower the expenses. Please consider helping the credit union out by taking these two simple actions. As always, we appreciate your support of your credit union.

If You Use Our Debit Card...
Please help the credit union by pushing "Credit" instead of "Debit" when you use your MECU debit card. The selection determines which authorization system is used to approve the transaction, not whether you are using a credit card or a debit card. The only difference you will see is that "Credit" authorizations require a signature and "Debit" requires you to enter your PIN. MECU receives more income from the merchant for processing Credit transactions and that helps offset the ever increasing expense of the debit card program.
If you use Home Banking ...
Please consider signing up for eStatements the next time you visit Home Banking. You will have access to your statement on the morning of the 1st (if not sooner) and statements remain available to your for 12 months. Producing and mailing a paper statements cost about 5 times what an eStatement costs, so the savings are significant!
