If you are in the process of transitioning to a new address, you can bring a utility bill from your new address or go to the Secretary of State to have your address updated. Keep in mind that P.O. Boxes are not considered a valid physical address. You will also need a $5.00 deposit (this is your buy-in to the credit union cooperative!) to open your savings account.
What do I need to open a minor account?
Our minor accounts are very popular! To open a minor account with MCCCU, you will need to bring in the child’s social security card. If the child is between the ages of 16-18, we will need to see a current form of photo ID (school ID, driver’s license, State issued ID). A legal guardian will need to be joint on the account until the minor turns 18.
How do I change my address on my account?

To add a joint owner, you’ll visit one of our 5 locations to speak with a Member Relationship Specialist. Bring the person you’re looking to add to the account and make sure they bring a valid ID. Keep in mind, all of the owners on the account must sign to add the new joint owner.
How do I remove a joint owner from my account?
Only the joint owner who is being removed will be able to take themselves off of the account. They will need to visit one of our locations and speak with a Member Relationship Specialist.

What is a Certificate of Deposit?
A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a savings certificate entitling the bearer to receive interest. A CD bears a maturity date, a specified fixed interest rate and can be issued in any denomination over $1,000. When you open a CD, your money is on deposit for a specific time period. For agreeing to keep it on deposit for a specified time period, you earn more than you would in a regular savings account. Keep in mind, if you cash it in before its maturity date, you will pay an early withdrawal penalty. To see our current Certificate of Deposit rates, click here.
What interest rate do you pay on a Certificate of Deposit?
Interest rates on Certificates of Deposit vary and are based on the term of the certificate and on the opening balance of the certificate. To see our current Certificate of Deposit rates, click here.
What is a Roth IRA?
A Roth IRA is an individual retirement account created by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Roth IRA accounts are traditionally used as retirement savings accounts. They allow limited contributions to be made throughout the tax year and can be withdrawn within 5 years after establishing the account provided you are aged 59 1/2 or older.
Will I earn interest on my money if I put it into a Roth IRA?
Yes, you will earn interest on the funds that are on deposit at the credit union in your Roth IRA.
Who can contribute to a Roth IRA?
Those who work for a living can contribute to a Roth IRA account. The income must be derived from actual work efforts and compensation in the form of wages, tips, salaries, bonuses and professional fees.
How much can I contribute to my Roth IRA?
There are limits on the amount of income one can make during a given year—and the limits change from year to year. Please visit the IRS website for details.
Will my Roth IRA affect the amount that I can contribute to my employer-sponsored retirement plan?
No. The amount you contribute to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plans will not be affected by your Roth IRA.
Can I have both a traditional and a Roth IRA?
Yes, you can maintain both types of IRAs at the same time. You can even make contributions to both types of IRAs in the same year. But your contributions to both Roth and traditional IRAs cannot exceed the maximum contribution limit for all IRAs.
I am recently unemployed, can I rollover my 401(k) to an IRA?
Yes, you can speak to one of our Membership Relationship Specialists at any of our 5 locations. You will need to provide the following information: the name of the company where your 401k is currently held, their address, your account number, and the amount you’d like to transfer. Typically this information can be found on one of your 401k statements.
What are the charges for a checking account?
We are happy to report there are no charges attached to our checking accounts!
Can I get overdraft protection?
You sure can! MCCCU offers three types of overdraft protection (savings account, CheckGuard, and a line of credit option). One way to protect yourself from overdrawing your account is to set up your savings as a back-up. This enables you to use your own money to make sure your transactions are covered. This is a no-fee solution that we are glad to be able to offer! Another way to protect yourself is to enroll in our CheckGuard overdraft protection service. This service ensures any transactions or payments you have scheduled will be honored (up to $500) even if you don’t have the funds available in your account. If you do not elect to utilize this service, any transaction that hits your account will be rejected if you don’t have funds available. Overdraft protection is a service we are glad to offer our members, but isn’t the right fit for everyone as there is $30 fee charged for each transaction that overdrafts the account. If you’d like to speak with an MCCCU representative about these options to find the best fit for you, contact us!
Does the credit union put a hold on checks?
For security purposes, MCCCU will sometimes put holds on checks when necessary. Any supporting documentation you can provide about a check can help to avoid or reduce a hold.
What should I do if my checks were lost or stolen?
If your checks are lost or you believe they have been stolen, make sure you contact us right away. We will place a block on any checks that have been compromised so they are unable to be cashed.
Is there a charge to get a debit card?
No, there is no charge to get an MCCCU debit card.
What are the daily limits for a debit card?
The daily limits for MCCCU debit cards are $375 for PIN transactions (when you elect to run a transaction as a debit) and $1,000 for signature transactions (when you elect to run a transaction as a credit).
Who do I contact if my debit/credit card is lost or stolen?
If your debit card is stolen, please call 734-242-3222 during business hours or 800-828-3901 after business hours.
Can I use my debit card outside the United States?
Yes, you can certainly use your MCCCU debit card when traveling outside of the United States. As always, you should contact the credit union to let us know you’re traveling so we can inform our fraud protection partner. Please keep in mind if you’re traveling to an area that is experiencing a lot of fraud, the card may still reject transactions for security purposes. We recommend traveling with a few payment methods when you’re going to be out of the country—FYI, we offer reloadable travel cards that offer the same functionality as a debit card without the risk of compromising your account.
Do I get charged an ATM fee by Monroe County Community Credit Union?
No, MCCCU members will never be charged a fee for using one of the 8 ATMs we own. In addition to the ATMs we own, MCCCU members have access to the Co-Op ATM Network, which allows members access to nearly 30,000 ATMs across the country. Members who utilize machines in this network get 6 free transactions a month with a $1.00 surcharge fee for every subsequent transaction.
Is there a charge to get an ATM card?
Nope! MCCCU ATM cards are free of charge!
How long is the hold on deposits into an ATM?

Can the credit union give me a copy of my credit report?
No. The credit bureau does not allow us to give out copies of the report. You can request a free copy of your credit report by visiting AnnualCreditReport.com.
How often should I get a copy of my credit report?
Because the federal government requires that each of the three national credit-reporting agencies—Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion—gives you a free credit report every year, consider staggering the receipt of each of your credit reports. That way, you'll get a continuous picture of how your credit picture looks, because the three bureaus feed each other the latest information. You’ll also be able to clean up errors as you find them (because errors can drag down a credit score) and you’ll also keep an eye on identity theft.
How can I get a copy of my credit report?
The federal government requires that each of the three national credit-reporting agencies—Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion—gives you a free credit report every year. You can request a free copy of your credit report by visiting AnnualCreditReport.com. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the only authorized online source is at annualcreditreport.com. Consumers should be aware that there are many sites out there that claim to offer “free” credit reports but often charge you for another product if you accept the report.
To request your credit report by phone, call (877) 322–8228. To request your credit report by mail, write to Annual Credit Report Request Service, P.O. Box 105281, Atlanta, GA 30348-5281. Do not contact the individual credit-reporting agencies.

Is it a good idea to cosign a loan?
Cosigners lend their names and good credit histories to the person getting the loan. Should this person lose their job, pass away, or otherwise fail to make payments, all responsibility for meeting the terms of the loan would transfer to you, the cosigner. An often-overlooked aspect of cosigning a loan is the fact that the loan will appear on both the person getting the loan and the cosigner's credit reports.

Should I borrow money from my 401(k) for emergency cash?
It might be tempting to view your 401(k) as a source of emergency funds, but before you dip into your retirement account for cash, we strongly suggest exploring other alternatives.

How do credit unions differ from banks?
Credit unions are non-profit and exist to help people, not to make a profit. As such, all earnings are returned to their members in the form of high-interest savings and low rate loans. A volunteer board of directors, elected by the members, governs a credit union. With their vote, each member has a direct impact on the direction of the credit union. Also, "people helping people" is the credit union philosophy. A credit union's goal is to serve all of their members equally and provide charitable contributions to their community. Credit unions are owned by their members. Each member gets one vote and an equal say in how the credit union is run.
