University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) is proud to serve the Galveston County community since 1982. “We appreciate the opportunities to provide for your well-being with personal service and products for every phase of your life, as well as financial solutions to manage your day-to-day finances,” said Freda Davis, Financial Center Manager.

Worry-Free Checking

From to-do lists to grocery lists, from homework assignments to work projects, each and every day you have so much on your mind. Reduce your stress and worries and find freedom in everyday finances with UFCU.

“With UFCU Free Checking, our members receive unlimited lobby, drive-thru and contact center transactions with no minimum balance requirements,” said Davis.

UFCU also offers Plus, Premium and Teen Checking accounts. And, all UFCU checking accounts come with an Instant Issue VISA® Debit Card. “You can walk in, open a checking account and walk out that day with an active debit card,” said Davis.

The UFCU ABILITY™ VISA® Prepaid Debit Card is a member-friendly alternative to credit cards and traditional banking. This card is easy-to-use with convenient reloadable capabilities 24/7. The UFCU ABILITY Card eliminates the concern of going into debt or overdrawing your account; you can only spend what you deposit into your account. 

“Whether you are a student, online shopper or a traveler, you’ll get to enjoy spending the money you’ve earned stress free,” said Davis.

Additional features of the UFCU ABILITY Card include:

• Access your account via Mobile Banking, Online Banking, ATMs and over 5,000 locations. 

• Make purchases wherever VISA® is accepted, including online purchases. 

• Get paid via Direct Deposit. 

• Pay bills ... and more.

UFCU Online and Mobile Banking make it easy to access your account whether you are traveling or out and about running errands. “We are where you are,” said Davis.

UFCU Online Banking is complete with free Bill Pay, Account Alerts and online account transfers, including to and from your accounts at other financial institutions.

With Mobile Deposit, a feature of UFCU Mobile Banking, you can conveniently deposit checks from the comfort of home using your mobile device.

“Even off the island and around the country it’s easy for UFCU members to perform transactions,” said Davis. UFCU’s participation in the CO-OP Shared Branch network gives you more than 5,000 locations to access your UFCU accounts. For more information and locations, visit ufcu.org
