Since our beginnings in 1934, SEFCU has served the financial needs of its members by providing a wide range of credit union products at an affordable cost, keeping our service fees as reasonable as possible. In fact, our written policy prohibits the use of fees to generate income for the credit union.
"SEFCU will assess reasonable fees only to offset costs and to encourage responsible use of SEFCU's services by the membership."
SEFCU's ongoing goal is to maintain a generally competitive position on products and services. We cannot always offer the lowest price or the highest return on every product and service without negatively affecting the quality of our offerings and the soundness of our financial cooperative. However, the credit union regularly reviews rates and fees and adjusts them accordingly, in order to apply the best pricing possible for the benefit of our membership.

**Items returned unpaid (e.g., checks, ACH, bill payments) that are re-presented again for payment will be charged additional insufficient funds fees if available funds in your account are still insufficient when re-presented.
***Other processing fees from out-of-U.S. institution may apply.
†Funds transfers are initiated by you, not a third party.
††Other Mastercard fees may apply.
†††Popmoney is a payment service that allows you to transfer money from your SEFCU account using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network. This fee applies because you are using Pop Money to initiate a transfer to a third-party payee. As an alternative to paying the SEFCU fee, you could have the third-party initiate a debit to your SEFCU account. SEFCU does not charge a fee when a third-party payee initiates a debit (withdrawal) to your SEFCU account. However, the payee may charge a fee for initiating the transaction on their end.
♦ Both the ATM Inquiry fee and the Foreign Transaction fee may be charged during the same visit to the non-SEFCU ATM if both transactions are performed.
♦♦For delivery within United States. Fee for delivery outside of the United States will be the actual cost.
