What's New

Balance Transfer Offer

What's sweeter than flowers and candy? UFirst VISA Credit Card + Low Balance Transfer Rate + Savings + Rewards = Super Sweet Deal! During the month of February, make the switch with balance transfer rates as low as 4.90% APR*!

Why should I transfer my balance?

If you have balances on multiple cards, transferring them to one card helps you simplify your monthly bills, reducing your number of payment and saving you money!

Ready to transfer your balance? Here's what you need to do:

  • Fill out the application to initiate the balance transfer
  • Be sure to get your application in before the offer runs out on February 28th, 2019
  • Remember: Balance transfers aren't instant, so be prepared for it to take a week or so for the balance on your existing cards to disappear. If you have a bill due before the transfer goes through, you have to pay it.

Mobile Deposit

The feature that everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived! Mobile Deposit is an easy and secure way for you to deposit checks using your mobile device. In just a few steps, you can make your deposit without ever having to go to a branch! Here are some frequently asked questions:

Is there a charge to use Mobile Deposit?

No, it's completely free!

How do I properly endorse my check(s)?

It is extremely important to ensure that you endorse your check(s) correctly so they don't get rejected. Here is what to do:

  • Sign your name as it appears on the front of the check
  • Write the account number you want the check deposited in underneath your signature
  • Some checks have a box that you can check for mobile deposit, so you can just mark that. (Image coming soon)
  • If there isn't a mobile deposit box, write Mobile Deposit

If proper endorsement isn't provided, then the deposit will be rejected.

When can I expect my deposit to appear in my account?

Deposits made prior to 2:30pm will be deposited into your account around 4:30pm. Anything after 2:30pm will be considered next day.

Are there limits to how much or how many checks I can deposit?

Yes. The maximum amount per deposit per day is $5,000 per account. Maximum amount for one check is $2,500 per day. There is not a limit to the number of checks that you can deposit in a day as long as you are within the daily limit.

Will there be a hold on deposit?

Deposits made through Mobile Deposit are subject to the UFirst check hold policy that is currently in place for all deposits made by check.

How do I access Mobile Deposit?

CO-OP ATM Access


UFirst FCU has some exciting news! We've joined a CO-OP ATM Network that allows our members access to nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs from coast to coast! That's convenience even some of the biggest banks can't match. And it's one of the benefits of being a member of UFirst FCU.

What does this mean? It means that you can use any ATM where you see the CO-OP logo. So, whether you're across town or away from home for business or pleasure, finding the closest surcharge-free ATM is easy, using your phone, mobile app, text messaging or internet access.
