Beware of Recent Scams!
There are recent scams where they call, text or e-mail you that your debit card has been blocked. Do not respond to these calls, text, or e-mails. They are not from Upstate Federal Credit Union. If you have any questions please contact your local branch office.
REMEMBER Upstate Federal Credit Union will never call you asking for information on your account.

Financial Travel Tips
Inform your Credit Union in advance that you will be out of town to ensure your card is not blocked from suspected fraudulent activites while you are gone.
Know your available balance and daily limits on your debit and credit cards so you are not stranded without access to cash. Also, rental car agencies and hotels typically hold additional amounts on your card to cover the cost of the rental or room which ends up reducing your available balance.
Check the expiration dates on your debit and credit cards so that your card does not expire while you are gone.
Sign up for Mobile Banking, Online Banking, or know the Upstate Connection 24/7 Line Number (toll free 1-866-711-3505) so you have access to your account.
Check the ATM locations near your destination. CO-OP Financial Services has 28,000 ATM machines nationwide. Visit www.co-opfs.org for ATM locations. There is no fee on the CO-OP network for Upstate FCU card holders.
Be smart and do your homework before leaving home.
Text the address, intersection or zip code to 692667.
Within moments, the closest ATM to your location will be texted back to you.
Regular text messaging rates apply on your cell phone plan.
