CHANGE UP® FOR EASY SAVING

With Change Up savings, using your debit card helps you save money. Make non-PIN “credit” purchases with your debit card and we’ll round up the change to the next dollar and deposit the difference into a special interest-bearing savings account. All you need is an Educators checking account and to be signed up for eStatements.

You can’t make additional deposits to your Change Up savings, but you can withdraw money at any time. The Change Up amount will not be withdrawn from your checking until the transactions clear your account. On your eStatement and Online Banking checking history, your transaction will show the exact amount of each purchase. All Change Up amounts will be totaled and deducted from your checking as one daily item at the end of each day.

Important Information:
Check 21 – Legislation is now in place to allow your check to be replaced in the check process by an electronic check. This is designed to improve efficiency in faster check clearing, decrease fraud and increase security. Checks may clear within one or two days, so make sure funds are on deposit before writing. Should you need a copy of a check, it may be a reproduction of the electronic check, known as a “substitute check.” This form will maintain the legal equivalence of the original check.
