Loan Payment Options - There are several ways you can make your loan payments - automatic deduction, transfer through online banking, mail in payments, pay in person at the teller line, or use other institutions bill pay to send in your payments.
Fee Changes - May 15, 2018 Instant Issue Debit Card Replacement will increase from $5 to $10. Loan Payments with Debit or Credit Cards will cost $10 per loan, no loan payments over $750 can be made with cards.
Mobile and Online Banking Updates – The end of March there are a few new upgrades that we wanted you to be aware of in online banking and the Telco Plus Mobile App. One, you can turn your cards off or on any time you want! If you have a lost or stolen card, freeze it until you find it or shut your card off during the day while you are at work and turn it on when you need it. You can find this feature in Accounts. Second, you can see pending transactions! (We have had a lot of members asking for that service.) Another improved service is Alert frequency. Alerts are a lot faster, being updated every 15 minutes. If you don’t use Alerts, please look in online banking for all of the great options for debits, credits, balances, and loan reminders. *If you skip the alert delivery time feature, the alerts will be sent at midnight. **If your phone does not automatically update your apps for you, please consider going into your Settings, System Updates to check for new updates.
Faster Transactions – with new technology and rules, transactions are processing closer to their intended dates. Transactions will come out of your accounts faster and deposits will be in accounts closer to the official due dates. Please set up auto payments with this in mind. You can set up online banking alerts to see when deposits hit your accounts. We also have free CardNav that you can download and use to see all transactions when they happen.
Prepaid Card Fee – our 3rd party provider for the prepaid cards is charging people $5 to speak with a live customer service rep. We have no control over this fee! Please use their website www.lsc.net/services/prepaid to avoid this fee.
Micro Business Loans - We do unsecured loans up to $10,000 and up to $50,000 on secured business loans.
Retirement & Planning Services - Come see Paula McCauley, CRPC Financial Advisor on Thursdays for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
