Direct Deposit

You can have your payroll, veterans, supplemental security, social security, or other payments directly deposited into your Guthrie FCU checking/draft or savings account.  Simply provide the payer with the Guthrie FCU routing number (231388494) and your checking/draft or member account number.  Your checking/draft account number can be found at the bottom of your checks.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury recently announced a new initiative to increase electronic transactions. This initiative requires that you receive your Veterans, Supplemental Security, Social Security, and Railroad retirement funds electronically by March 1, 2013. Get more information.

Over Draft Protections

Guthrie FCU offers two options to help you avoid overdraft and insufficient funds fees.  Ask about our automatic transfer option, which transfers money from your savings account to your checking/draft account automatically in the event of an overdraft.  There is a fee for each transfer, get more information on transfers.

We also offer an overdraft line of credit.  In the event of an overdraft, the amount will be drawn from the line of credit instead of being denied and incurring fees.  The balance on the line of credit will incur interest at your approved loan rate.  Get more information.

 

Change Saver Account

Change Saver is a program that rounds up each debit card transaction to the next dollar on your Advantage Plus or Basic Checking account.  At the end of each day you will see a credit for the difference on your Change Saver Account.

This is a great way for members to save without thinking about it! 

Change Saver will not take your checking account negative, it will only take what is available. You have the convenience to withdrawal or deposit to the change saver at anytime!

To open a Change Saver account, please stop by one of our offices.
