We offer free notary service to our members at any of our branch locations.
Your employer must start the direct deposit process. The easiest way to sign up for direct deposit is to present your payroll department with a completed direct deposit form. It will have all the information they'll need to get you started. You will need to provide them your account number, which can be found on the member ID card you received when you opened your account or on your checks. You can authorize direct deposit of your payroll, Social Security, retirement, Veteran's Administration benefits or almost any recurring deposits.
You received a call due to potentially suspicious activity on your card. The cardholder must contact us at 602.631.3200 or 800.621.0287 (outside Maricopa County) during normal business hours to confirm these transactions to ensure the account is not being used fraudulently.

Under the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act, all financial institutions must do an identity check on a new member. They use "customer identification programs" (CIP) that compare your name, address, date of birth, and other facts to the information contained on your credit report.
Your credit score will not be affected by this step. The CIP regulations require institutions to implement reasonable procedures for (1) verifying the identity of any person seeking to open an account, to the extent reasonable and practicable, and (2) maintaining records of the information used to verify the person's identity, including name, address, and other identifying information.
Financial institutions also review ChexSystems and sometimes credit report data during the process of determining if a member qualifies to open a new account. Under FCRA regulations, the financial institution has to have a permissible purpose such as "intend[ing] to use the information in connection with a credit transaction involving the consumer" in order to pull a credit report and must obtain the consumer's consent first.
