How do I open a checking account?

If you're already enrolled in Online Banking, log in to your account. In the menu, click Open An Account and then select Open a Checking Account and follow the prompts. If you're not enrolled in Online Banking, contact us.

Do Credit Union checking accounts have a minimum balance requirement or monthly maintenance fees?

There is no minimum balance for opening or maintaining a checking account, nor are there any monthly maintenance fees.

What if I don't meet the qualifications for the PowerPlus Checking interest and non-BCU ATM fee reimbursement benefits?

If you don't meet the qualifications, don't sweat it. You won't be penalized, and will continue to enjoy no minimum balance requirements or monthly maintenance fees as well as easy access to your account.

Will I be charged for using a non-BCU ATM?

The Credit Union does not charge fees for using non-BCU ATMs. Also, the Credit Union belongs to several surcharge-free ATM networks and reimburses non-BCU ATM fees for qualifying PowerPlus checking accounts.

What is the routing number for the Credit Union?

The Credit Union's routing number is 271992400.

What is my MICR number or account number?

Your 14-digit Direct Deposit/MICR Number can be found on the bottom of your checks. You will see a series of numbers separated by colons (:) or other symbols. Your Direct Deposit/MICR Number is the series of numbers in the middle (see bold below).

Example: 000000000 : 00000000000000 : 0000

If you don't have checks, you can also retrieve this number by logging into Online Banking and selecting the deposit account for which you would like the information. Simply:

  1. Log in to Online Banking.
  2. Select the account you'd like to view from your account list.
  3. The routing number and MICR/Direct Deposit number will appear underneath the Account Details section.

NOTE: Loan account numbers can be found on the loan coupon book. If you don't have a coupon book, please contact us for your loan number.

How does Enhanced Direct Deposit work?

Financial institutions are notified of forthcoming electronic deposits before they actually receive the money. Instead of waiting for the funds to arrive like most banks, the Credit Union gives our members their money sooner by advancing payroll and any other electronic deposits as soon as we are notified they are on their way.

How do I set up direct deposit of my payroll funds?

To set up direct deposit of payroll funds to your Credit Union account and take advantage of this Enhanced Direct Deposit feature, simply provide your payroll department with Credit Union’s routing number and your 14-digit Direct Deposit/MICR Number.

Is there a fee for Enhanced Direct Deposit?

No, there is no fee. Enhanced Direct Deposit is free for all members.

Does this mean my payday changes?

No, your payday doesn’t change. The Credit Union simply advances your payroll funds so you'll be able to access them up to a full day before your scheduled payday. This is a service provided by the Credit Union for our members; this is not a service your employer provides.
