Protect your finances — Authorize electronic debits from trusted companies. Providing your account number along with the routing and transit number can expose your account to unauthorized debits.
Treat your ATM and debit card as cash — Do not keep the pin number with the card.
Avoid unnecessary debit card authorizations — Hotels, car rental, gas stations and other merchants may obtain an authorization restricting available funds in your account. While these authorizations may expire in 3 to 5 business days or longer, your funds are not available for usage. It is better to use a credit card for such purchases. MEFCU has a great line of Visa credit cards!
