Choose “credit” on point of sale (POS) transactions when it is available to help support your credit union.
By choosing credit (signature based), it helps to allow the credit union to offer lower fees and more services and often provides more security.
If the merchant’s machine automatically prompts you to enter your PIN, simply ignore that request and push the Green “O” (Circle) on the right side. This will proceed as a credit transaction.
Thanks for doing your part to help the credit union, together we are strong.

What is EnFact?
At The State Credit Union, our goal, quite simply, is to minimize your exposure to risk and the impact of any fraudulent activity on your accounts.
To protect your account, The State Credit Union monitors debit card transactions for potentially fraudulent activity through a Fraud Detection Program called EnFact Premium Testing. Potentially fraudulent activity may include a sudden change in locale (such as when a U.S. issued card is used unexpectedly overseas or in a foreign country), a sudden string of costly purchases, or any pattern associated with new fraud trends around the world.
If we suspect fraudulent debit card use, our monitoring agency will either send you a text* or call you to validate the legitimacy of your suspect transactions.
When we text you...
If our system detects suspicious activity on your card, you'll receive a text message with details about the suspected transaction. All you have to do is respond to the text to confirm the transaction. If you indicate the transaction is fraud, you'll receive another message with a number to call for follow-up. If not, you're all set. The system will mark the transaction as legitimate and you can get on with your day - simple as that.
We may be calling you...
If fraudulent debit card use is suspected on your account and we can't reach you by text message, you will be called to validate the legitimacy of your transactions. Your participation in responding to our call is critical to prevent potential risk and avoid restrictions we may place on the use of your debit card.
To ensure we can continue to reach you whenever potential fraud is detected, please keep us informed of your correct phone numbers (cell, home and work) and address at all times.
It is the policy of The State Credit Union to NEVER solicit customer information or identification, numbers or passwords via e-mail. If you are approached with such an offer, do not reply to the e-mail and instead contact The State Credit Union immediately.
*Text Messaging is a free service offered by The State Credit Union; rates and fees from your wireless carrier will not apply

From time to time, people changes jobs, houses, telephone numbers or just their email address. Please remember to let the State Credit Union know about your changes so we can ensure we contact you at the right address/email/telephone and also keep our records up to date. Due to the volume of 'Returned Statements' by the U.S. Postal Service, the pre-established $10 fee per statement will be implemented, and charged for each statement returned to SCU.
E-statements are a popular option for members in lieu of receiving a mailed statement. To make this change, contact the Credit Union or simply go to SCU on Web, click e-statements, Enroll now, and confirm the agreement. Also, any changes can be made directly on the SCU on Web. This method is safe and secure and can be completed on your time. Thanks for being a State Credit Union Member!
Debit Card Holds and Account Balance Availability
You have a 'balance' and an 'available balance' amount. The 'available' amount is the amount you have access to. The debit card 'Authorization Holds' or amounts are removed from you balance to show your available amount to use. This is important to recognize in managing your daily transactions to avoid (NSF)-Non Sufficient Fund charges.
