You’ve got better things to do with your time than wait in line to cash your check. Here are some other benefits Direct Deposit provides:
- Funds are available to you faster
- Eliminates lost or stolen checks
- Saves you gasoline
- Chance for Identity Theft is greatly reduced
- Access your funds almost anywhere
Armco CU accepts Direct Deposit of payroll, Social Security, Civil Service, retirement and other recurring checks.
Members can have a portion of their pay deducted each pay period, to be applied into a variety of savings and loan accounts. This makes saving for a variety of reasons as simple as possible.
Payroll Deduction can also reduce the total amount of interest paid over the life of the loan.
Ask your employer about Payroll Deduction. If they don’t currently offer it, we may be able to help.
For situations where immediate funds availability is required. Fee assessed.
The old days of sitting down with a big jar of change and wasting hours counting and rolling it are gone. Save yourself the time and aggravation, and bring it to Armco CU. Our free coin machine will count your change in a fraction of the time and get you back to the important things in life.
Coin machine available and free for member’s use only.
Available in amounts up to $1,000. Fee assessed.
Avoid bounced checks with your choice of automatic Overdraft Protection options. Our standard Overdraft Protection draws from the predetermined account of your choice in the event your Checking Account is overdrawn. This type of transaction has a $7.50 fee, but it is still preferable to a $25 non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee. There is no annual fee for Overdraft Protection.
Many members apply for and use a Personal Line-of-Credit as their Overdraft Protection source. When you use your Personal Line-of-Credit, you pay only interest on the amount transferred to cover the check amount, avoiding the $7.50 Overdraft fee and the $25 NSF fee.
Armco CU offers standard American Express Traveler’s Cheques, in U.S. currency, free of charge to members.

Cheques for Two® have a convenient dual signature feature allowing either of you to purchase or use them, so one can go sight seeing while the other relaxes.
- Offers same benefits of traditional Travel Cheques.
- Available in US dollars only.
Armco CU charges a $1.00 per $100 fee on Cheques for Two.
