One and Done: Consolidate Your Debt

If your mailbox is filling up with mail from a guy named "Bill," it's time to visit the credit union to talk about a consolidation loan. We'll work with you to pay off those high-interest credit cards or other high-rate debt that has accumulated. With a consolidation loan, you will have one payment to make at an interest rate that's fair. Almost always, that means you'll pay less total interest as well as have a lower monthly payment. You can consolidate up to $10,000 worth of debt with Media Members Consolidation Loans for five years with an interest rate as low as 9.9% APR. Instead of constantly revolving debt, why not be sure to pay it off with a closed end loan. You can have a Consolidation Loan in addition to a personal, car or home equity loan. With a Consolidation Loan from the Credit Union, you can get your life back on track to financial freedom.

We'll also give you tips on how to control your spending so that you don't find yourself back in the same situation in the future. For example, we may suggest you put your credit cards on ice - literally - by immersing your plastic in a container of water, then placing the container in the bottom of your freezer. If you really need to use your card, you can dig though the leftovers and thaw it out. But most likely, you'll be better able to resist impulse shopping. With a consolidation loan from the credit union, you can get your life back on the track to financial freedom.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rate current as of date of publication and is subject to change. Contact the Credit Union for complete details.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CHECKING ACCOUNT OWNERS AT MEDIA MEMBERS FCU

In the past, members were permitted to retain their checking funds in their savings account and the credit union would automatically transfer those funds to cover checks/share drafts.  However, beginning February 1, 2016, new compliance regulations will go into effect.

Share draft/Checking accounts will only be permitted 6 automatic transfers from savings per month.  You can still come into either office or any shared branching location, call us or go to the ATM to transfer.  These transfers are not counted as automatic transfers.  Virtual Branch transfers are considered automatic, so you can only do 6 per month.

When an account has over 6 automatic transfers, the account will be charged a $30 overdraft fee.

We highly recommend that when depositing funds into your account, you make the deposit directly into your share draft/checking account in order to avoid fees.

We apologize for any inconvenience.  Media Members FCU strives to maintain the highest level of customer service while complying with the latest regulations.

Please call us at 610-292-6762 or 215-854-4460 if you have any questions.

NOTICE REGARDING FEES

Effective September 1, 2014, all NSF Fees(share draft, ACH, ATM, POS) as well as returned check fees and domestic wire transfers will be $30. 

Reminder: Just because you are leaving the company, you can keep your account with Media Members FCU.
Once a credit union member, always a credit union member!

It’s easier than ever now, with Debit Cards, Direct Deposit, Virtual Branch and Bill Pay, you don’t ever have to come into the office (although we would love to see you).

Our routing number for direct deposit of pension, social security, unemployment or your paycheck is 2360 8417 5.

ATTENTION MEMBERS: Special Dormancy Account Notice
Please be sure to notify the credit union at least once a year to keep your account from dormancy status. There is a $10 per month fee for accounts under $500 with no activity for 18 or more months. Also, please be advised that Pennsylvania Law considers an account to be dormant and turned over to the state if there has been no activity for three years. In order to avoid dormancy fees or Pa. Escheat, please deposit, withdrawal or notify your credit union in writing to label your account as active.

Celebrate Your Credit Union Ownership

Do you know who owns Media Members Federal Credit Union? YOU DO! And that's just one of the many things that make credit unions unique.

Credit Unions are not-for-profit, democratically controlled, volunteer-run, member-owned cooperatives. They exist to serve their members. Unlike most other financial institutions, credit unions do not issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Instead, earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher interest on deposits, and lower fees.

Because they are unique in both structure and purpose, credit unions provide a viable alternative to for-profit financial institutions in 96 countries. At Media Members FCU , we take pride in our heritage as a cooperative financial service provider and our connection to 49,000 credit unions worldwide.

At credit unions, every customer is both a member and an owner. Remember, you are our most valuable asset and the reason Media Members Federal Credit Union exists.

Directors elected for three years were: Maryanne Klein, Franni Lewis and Ken Stone. Following the meeting, the Board of Directors met and elected the following officers for 2009: Jim Kilrain, Chairman of the Board; Franni Lewis, Vice-Chairperson; Jerry Etter; Secretary; and Earl Laney, Treasurer.

We hope to see you at next year's meeting which will be held on February 17, 2010.


Improve Your Credit Score

Follow these three easy steps, and you’ll boost your credit score in no time!

Pay Bills On Time
Late payments pull down your credit score, plus paying all those late fees can add up. Save money and help pull up your credit score all at the same time.

Pay the Maxed-Out Cards First
Points are deducted if you use more than 50% of your card’s limit. Pay your maxed-out credit cards, and your credit score will improve.

Don’t Cancel Any Credit Cards
Most of your credit score is based on how much credit you have but aren’t using. When you cancel a card, it will decrease the amount of your available credit. If you are drowning in credit card or any kind of debt, give the Credit Union a call. We are your financial partner and want to help members keep their feet on the ground.


Electronic Loans make purchasing easy!

Do you plan to purchase a PLASMA TV, LAP TOP COMPUTER,
BLACKBERRY, SATELLITE RADIO, IPOD or any other of the new electronic items now available? If so, stop by your credit union to apply for our new “Electronic Loan.” We are offering a special
low rate with up to 3 years to pay. For example, you can get $5,000 for only $37.07 a week. Call us for further information
and details.

*APR= Annual Percentage Rate. Some restrictions may apply. Stop by the branch for details.


Increased Insurance Coverage for Credit Union Members

The National Credit Union Administration has increased the insurance coverage on retirement accounts (Roth IRAs, Traditional IRAs, and KEOGH) from $100,000 to $250,000. Effective April 1st, this change makes it easier for people to keep more money at one financial institution while maintaining full coverage.

This retirement account insurance coverage is separate from insurance coverage on other accounts. For example, you may have $35,000 in a share draft account under your name, $55,000 in a share draft account with your spouse, and $100,000 in an account for a business that you own. Even though the total exceeds $100,000 you are totally covered since each type of account is in a different ownership category. In addition, your retirement accounts are protected up to the $250,000 limit and are separately insured from your other accounts.

NCUA would cover your share accounts dollar for dollar up to the insurance limit if your credit union were to fail. Your money is fully insured also if you or your family has less than $100,000 or less in your accounts at the same insured credit union. Mutual funds, stocks, bonds, life insurance policies, and annuities are NOT covered.

In the future, these insurance coverage limits could rise, but it will not occur before 2011 if at all. For more information, visit the NCUA website at http://www.ncua.gov/ShareInsurance/
