The Access Account is a non-interest bearing account you can use to make deposits, withdrawals and pay bills. It is a checkless checking account, which means that you cannot write paper checks with this account. You can make payments with your debit card, through our Online Banking Bill Pay service, a wire transfer, or an Automated Clearing House transaction (ACH), and you can make withdrawals through an ATM or a TCU branch. You can also make deposits through direct deposit, mobile deposit, through an ATM or a TCU branch.
Features Available with the Access Account
The Access Account is designed to simplify your financial life. The many features of the Access account include free use of online banking, bill payment service, direct deposit and mobile banking, including mobile deposits and Access debit card. The Access Account also provides two free teller checks per month. The Access Account does not come with overdraft services, which means Travis Credit Union will not authorize or pay a transaction unless the account has sufficient collected funds at the time of the transaction.
Since this account does not include check writing privileges, do not order checks from third parties. If a check posts to your Access Account and there are insufficient funds to pay for the check, the check will be returned and the account will be subject to non-sufficient funds charges as described in the Travis Credit Union Fee Schedule. You may also incur additional fees from the merchant or other party you were trying to pay when the check is returned.
This account comes with a debit card that can be used to withdraw cash, make debit purchases, pay for gas and reserve hotel rooms or cars. Be aware that some merchants such as gas stations, restaurants, hotels and rental car agencies do not initially authorize the full amount of the purchase. This may cause the transaction to be force posted to the account even if there are insufficient funds when the full amount of the transaction posts to your account. Your account will not be charged a non-sufficient funds fee but may go into a negative status. You will be responsible for repaying any overdrawn amount.
