If you know the old PIN, you can change it by calling 866-599-5617 and select option 3 to change the PIN.  If the existing PIN is not known, you will need to call the credit union to have Card Services reset the card. After the card is reset call the activation line at 866-599-5617 and select option 1 to activate and set a PIN.

For security purposes, we do not have access to PINs. If you have forgotten your PIN, please call our Card Services department to reset the PIN. Then you will need to call the activation line at 866-599-5617 and select option 1 to activate and set a PIN.

Individual Retirement Accounts

An IRA account at the credit union is an insured tax shelter. You can make deposits into it and have them insured up to $250,000. The rate of return on IRAs at the credit union are set by the credit union and you have a choice to use the IRA Share Savings, and/or an IRA Certificate of Deposit. Your employer would be the best source of information on what they offer.

This amount is determined by the IRS and can be found here: https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/plan-participant-employee/retirement-topics-ira-contribution-limits

Both Traditional and Roth IRAs provide tax breaks. But it’s a matter of timing when you get to claim them. Traditional IRA contributions are tax-deductible on both state and federal tax returns for the year you make the contribution; withdrawals in retirement are taxed at ordinary income tax rates. Roth IRAs provide no tax break for contributions, but earnings and withdrawals are generally tax-free. Please consult your tax professional or financial planner for further guidance.

You can take a withdrawal at any time, but there may be tax implications for doing so if it is before retirement age. We do not provide loans from IRAs at the credit union.

Regulation D

Regulation D is a federal regulation that limits the number of preauthorized, automatic, electronic, or telephone withdrawals or transfers from the following account types to six per month per account. It does not affect any transfers or withdrawals on these account types made in person at a branch or ATM.

  • Share Savings
  • Kasasa Saver
  • Money Market Savings
  • Certificate Accounts
  • Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA)

If you do exceed this limit within a month, your transaction may be refused or reversed, and your account may be subject to a fee or closed.

  • Transfers, withdrawals, or payments to third parties over the phone with a Member Service Representative
  • Transfers, withdrawals, or payments to third parties using Online Banking or Mobile Banking
  • Transfers, withdrawals, or payments to third parties initiated through email or fax
  • Overdraft transfers
  • Preauthorized transfers and payments including ACH debits
  • Automatic transfers between accounts

Regulation D only affects preauthorized, automatic, electronic or telephone transfers. If you reached your limit on these types of transactions, you may still perform unlimited transactions in person, by mail, or at an ATM.

There are several ways to avoid Regulation D transaction limitations. The following transactions can be performed without any restriction from Regulation D:

  • Transactions performed on a checking account
  • Transactions performed at an ATM
  • Transactions performed in person at a branch (including Shared Branches)
  • Transactions performed through the mail
  • Transfers to pay loans at Trailhead
  • Telephone withdrawals in which a check is mailed directly to you and is payable to you

Savings Accounts

Kasasa Saver is a free, high-interest savings account linked to your free Kasasa Cash checking account. The rewards you earn on your Kasasa Checking account are automatically deposited into your Kasasa Saver account every month.
