• Immediately subtract any debit card or other electronic deduction from your check register.

• Don't "float" your checks.

• If an overdraft takes place, transfer money to your checking account as soon as possible to avoid paying additional fees.

• Make sure your address and phone numbers are current. How do I change address?

• Build an emergency fund.

• Utilize the Shared Branching Network.


Avoid ATM Fees
• Use your IU Credit Union Debit Card at surcharge-free Alliance One and CO-OP ATMs nationwide.

• Use your Debit Card for purchases.

• Use your Debit Card to get cash back when you purchase something at a point-of-sale (POS) register.
