ATM Cards

Your credit union is always with you, anytime or anyplace you need financial services involving instant cash. You can use your North Central ATM card at any ATM with the NYCE Co-op or Cirrus logos nationwide. Transactions are free at ATMs displaying the Co-op logo. ATMs are located at most branch locations and are free when using your North Central ATM card. If you already have our Debit Card, you do not need an ATM Card. Your Debit card is ATM-ready!

MasterCard Debit

The Debit Card works like a check allowing you to purchase items worldwide. Unlike a credit card that acts like a loan, a debit card accesses your checking account directly. Present your North Central debit card to make a purchase anywhere in the country that offers MasterCard and the transaction will clear your checking account directly as if you have written a check. There are no fees and the card is accepted by merchants around the world.

Register With Secure Code

North Central members carrying MasterCards are advised to register with MasterCard SecureCode.  MasterCard SecureCode is a private code for your MasterCard account that gives you an additional layer of online shopping security. Only you know what your code is – retailers aren’t able to see it, so you can trust that your transactions get your approval every time.  Secure Code is driven by online merchants. Not all online companies utilize it, but the ones that do require the MasterCard cardholder to be enrolled in SecureCode and will deny a transaction without it. It really is just an extra level of security provided by these online companies and MasterCard.  Remember as you get ready to shop for the holidays—some merchants will require that your card is enrolled in this program and will deny MasterCard purchases if you are not enrolled.

Visa Credit Cards

North Central has a Rewards card available to all members depending on qualifications and credit records. There is no annual fee with either card. Don’t have an North Central credit card yet?

You can report a lost or stolen credit/debit card using the numbers listed for the card you need to report. It is important that you call the correct number as each is specific to the type of card you are using.

Contact your employer to set up the direct deposit service. Your Christmas club money will roll over into your savings account annually on the first of November.

Courtesy Pay

Courtesy Pay protects you from the embarrassment of returned checks, and merchant returned checks. Courtesy Pay is a service that allows us to pay an item presented against your checking account even if it causes the account to become overdrawn. The system allows you to draw up to $500 over your account balance; a $30 overdraft fee will be included in this amount. The member is then given 30 days to bring their balance current. If additional checks are written when the balance is deficient an additional fee of $30 will apply. To qualify for Courtesy Pay your account has to be open for at least 60 days with the credit union. For more information on Courtesy Pay contact your local NCACU branch.

Free Financial Advising

Notary Services

Notary Services are available free of charge for members at all our branch locations. Non-members can use our Notary Services for $5.00.

Overdraft Protection

North Central’s overdraft protection is a service that allows the credit union to automatically pull money from a savings account to pay an overdraft from a checking account. This keeps checking accounts from having a non-sufficient fund fee. The charge for this protection is $5.00 per overdraft.

The overdraft reimbursement option is when you actually apply for a revolving loan to cover an insufficient balance in your checking account. This service has credit score requirements, income verification, credit report, and a signed contract just like a regular unsecured loan. This loan usually has a high interest rate attached and may be subject to service charges.

Credit unions are always looking for new ways to serve their members better. With this in mind, your credit union is excited to announce its participation in the Xtend Shared Branching service.
