Going out of town? Let us know.
If you are planning on hitting the road, please contact your WSFCU to make us aware. One of the best ways to help WSFCU safeguard your account while you are gone is to keep the credit union informed when you plan a trip.
Protecting our members is a top priority at WSFCU. For this reason, WSFCU regularly reviews accounts for suspicious activity (such as out of town transactions). If we identify suspicious activity, we may stop service to your card until we can contact you to verify the validity of the suspicious transactions.
By telling us where you are planning to use your WSFCU ATM/Debit card, you can help avoid a disruption in service. It also helps us to continue providing you with exceptional service, no matter where in the world you may be.
