In Branch Services

We offer our members additional convenient services through our branches. Some of our additional services may have fees. Please visit our fee schedule for details.

License Stickers

You can purchase the annual Illinois license sticker for your car, truck, or trailer at any of our branches.

Notary Services

When you need the services of a licensed notary to attest to legal papers and other documents, we provide licensed notaries at each of our locations to assist you.

Other Monetary Items

We provide a variety of monetary instruments to assist you with all your finances. These items are available for purchase through any of our branches:

  • Money orders

Prepaid Visa Travel Cards

Our Visa Travel Card offers you the best of both worlds: the safety of travelers checks and the convenience of a plastic card. It’s not tied to your checking or savings accounts, so if it’s lost or stolen, there’s no risk to you. Use the Visa Travel Card to shop, and pay for flights, hotel and meals. The Visa Travel Card is branded with the Visa Logo, and is accepted at over 20 million Visa locations worldwide. The card can be used at ATMs to withdraw cash and at merchants that accept PIN-based POS transactions.

Visa Travel Cards can be picked up at any branch location. Once you purchase your cards, you can access transaction information, change PINs, check balances and fund the card through the website. The cards can be funded with your checking or savings but are NOT linked to your accounts. It’s just the ticket for a secure, convenient trip.

Safe Deposit Boxes

Our safe deposit boxes provide a safe and private storage option for your valuable documents, jewelry, coins, collections, and other important items. Accessible during credit union hours, the secure boxes are enclosed in a walk-in vault and requires two keys to open: your key and the credit union key. We currently offer safe deposit boxes at the following locations: Bethalto 140, Decatur, East Alton, Godfrey, Jerseyville, and Wood River. Please call for availability.

Tax Payments

We accept real estate tax payments for Madison and Jersey County homeowners. Members and non-members can conveniently make real estate tax payments at any one of our branches.  (Jerseyville branch accepts only Jersey county tax payments). There is no fee for this service, but we do need the tax coupon in order to accept payments.

Visa Gift Cards

Save time on shopping for gifts when you pick up a Visa Gift Card at one of our branches. You can buy a Visa Gift Card in any amount from $10 to $500, and it’s better than a gift card from a specific merchant because the recipient can use it almost anywhere that Visa debit cards are accepted (some restrictions apply). You can choose from several designs. From graduations and birthday surprises to holiday gift giving, you can give the perfect gift every time with a Visa Gift Card.

Wire Transfers

When you need funds transferred from your account with us to an account at another financial institution on the same day, our wire transfer service is a convenient option.
