Tips for users

A few helpful tips...

Your current account, debit card and overdraft facility, where applicable, provide convenient methods of making and receiving day-to-day payments.

Get Cashback of up to €100 with purchases at participating retailers and avoid ATM transaction fees.

Use contactless payments for quick low value purchases.

Arrange for your salary, pension, welfare payments or other income to be paid into your current account to ensure funds are always available.

Save time and set up direct debits for regular bills.

Make secure cashless payments using your debit card, online and mobile app.

Access and download account statements online and avoid the need for duplicates or paper copies.

Avoid referral item fees and unpaid fees by: (a) maintaining sufficient funds in your account or (b) applying for an overdraft facility.

Plan ahead, know your payment dates and check your account balance regularly.

Be aware that cheques and other paper lodgements can take several working days before funds are available for withdrawal and similarly authorised transactions may remain pending before reducing your actual account balance.

Missed borrowing repayments made from your current account and regularly operating outside the terms of an existing overdraft facility may affect your credit rating and access to future credit.

Overdrafts

Deal with unexpected expenses

An overdraft is a short-term way to borrow money on your current account and can help in months where things get a little tight e.g. if you receive a higher than expected bill and need a bit longer to repay it.

You can apply for an overdraft on your Current Account from €200.00 up to a maximum of €5,000.00.

The interest rate is 12% pa variable. Interest is only charged on overdrawn balances. Your credit union does not currently apply surcharge interest (surcharge interest is charged by some Financial Institutions on unauthorised overdrawn balances.

An overdraft fee of €25.00 is charged on approval and on each anniversary of the overdraft approval date. Overdrafts are subject to financial status and are not available to persons under 18 years of age.

Using your Debit Card

How many debit cards can I have on my current account?

If you accidentally block your PIN at a point of sale terminal, you can simply go to an ATM and unblock your PIN.

If you accidentally block your PIN at an ATM please contact our Current Account Card Services Team on +353 (1) 6933333

What do I do if my card is lost or stolen?

Notify your Credit Union or call +353 (1) 6933333 immediately. We will then cancel your card immediately and a new card and PIN will be issued to you at your request.

  3. Cancelled subscription not actioned
  4. Received goods not as described

If you have identified a transaction that you are suspicious of on your Debit Card, you must contact your Credit Union or Credit Union Card Services team immediately on

Members must complete and return a 'Disputed Transaction' form along with copies of any:

  • Detailed cover letter advising the nature of the dispute
  • Proof of purchase
  • Evidence of the transaction

We will cancel your existing card and a new card will be issued to you within 7-10 working days.
