Debit and ATM Cards

With a swipe of your TIFCU Debit Mastercard, you have access to all the funds in your checking account. Use your TIFCU Debit Mastercard anywhere you would use cash or credit cards and get more convenient access to your money than ever before!

You can also use your TIFCU Debit Mastercard card to get cash, transfer funds and it’s accepted at ATMs locally, in the United States, and worldwide. And if you’re already on the go, you can easily check your debit card balance with our Online Banking and mobile banking access! Withdraw up to $500 cash per day and access up to $5,000 at point-of-sale (POS) transactions.

Restrictions apply. Not everyone opening a checking account will qualify for a TIFCU Debit Mastercard.

The TIFCU Instant-issue ATM Card is for those account holders who want to access their savings accounts, don’t qualify for a debit card or choose not to have a debit card. Withdraw up to $500 cash per day and the TIFCU ATM Card works for POS transactions where accepted.

Are You Planning a Trip?

Please contact us if you are planning to travel within the U.S. or abroad and wish to use your credit and/or debit card. Your account is monitored by fraud detection software which helps spot and prevent unapproved transactions. Transactions made outside of your normal locations or purchase history may trigger the software to suspend or block your card temporarily until you confirm the transaction(s) in question. Letting us know your itinerary will help to avoid interruption in credit and/or debit card processing.  

For security purposes, it is CRITICAL for the Credit Union to have your accurate phone number, email and mailing address at all times.

Mobile Deposit

  • Overdraft Advance (OA) Line of Credit

    • Avoid NSF fees when your checks, debits or ATM/Debit transactions reach your account before payday. Overdraft Advance is a $500 pre-approved line of credit tied to your checking account; if you don't use it, it costs nothing, because we don't charge an annual fee or application fee. If it's activated by an NSF, then you pay the principal you use, in addition to $29 per item returned. You must make payments (or make a lump-sum payoff) to keep the loan ready for whenever you need it. Loans must be paid off within thirty (30) days or the account will be closed and charged off.
