Taking a vacation?

If traveling out of state with your UICCU debit or credit card*, please notify us by calling 800-397-3790, by visiting any office location, or by using the online chat function at uiccu.org . States or countries with high cases of card fraud may be blocked from usage for your protection. If you are planning a trip, notifying us allows us to unblock the card so that it works for the period you are visiting. For added peace of mind, enroll your credit and debit card for our free Fraud Prevention Text Alerts. Thank you for helping us significantly decrease fraud on UICCU accounts.

*PIN-based debit transactions should still work even if notification to UICCU was not made. 

Call Wait Times.

UICCU has seen explosive growth this year and it has resulted in longer wait times on the phone. We are in the process of adding staff to our Call Center in order to reduce the wait and serve you faster. Of course, you can also bypass the call center by visiting our direct dial page as well. Thank you for your patience.
