Traveling? Notify 1st CCU In Advance!

You want your 1st CCU Visa card to work flawlessly while you're traveling, and we've made it easy! Simply set up a travel notification a few days before you leave home and 1st CCU will take care of the rest. Travel Notifications can be set up within our Mobile App. The Card Control function in the app is designed to make using your card while you travel more convenient. Input the dates and location of your travels and we will update your debit card. We do this because transactions that do not meet your normal purchase patterns could be flagged by our card processing system as suspicious, and when we're able to update your debit card with your travel itinerary the system will recognize that your out-of-the-norm purchases are actually being made by you. 

Travel Notifications need to be provided to 1st CCU in advance, at least a couple of business days before you leave home, in order to get them set up in time to prevent hiccups in card usage.  If the notifications are received after business hours we will update the debit card on the next business day. However, for immediate assistance you can also call the phone number on the back of your debit card or reach out to the 24-hour cardholder services at 866-820-8787.  If you don't have our mobile app you may also call 1st CCU's Bookkeeping Department a few days before you leave on your trip and they can assist you by updating your debit account.  Happy Travels!
