Credit Unions Earn Historic Victory as House Passes S. 2155 Reg. Relief BillNew Regulation Passed, Credit Unions Earn Historic Victory

By making our voices heard, we have made a difference. On May 24, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155) into law. Thanks to credit union members dedicated advocacy efforts this was accomplished. The passing of S.2155 will provide seniors with protection from elder abuse, make mortgage processing easier and quicker, increase affordable housing in our communities, and help us provide better service to you, our members. A big thank you goes out to our Senators Peters and Stabenow, Representative Jack Bergman of the 1st District and Representative John Moolenaar of the 4th District for their support of this bipartisan, common sense regulation! These efforts will not only make a difference on the Federal level, but also on the State and local level, as well.

Apple Pay for Debit Cards is Here!Apple Pay for Debit Cards is HERE!

Apple Pay for Debit Cards Is Here. The safer, easier way to pay.

Apple Pay for debit cards is available on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus devices, Apple Pay raises the bar for secure, convenient transactions. You simply enter your cards into your phone’s Wallet app, then shop in-store or online at thousands of merchant locations across the nation. Apple Pay offers numerous benefits over conventional card-based payments:
Your phone carries only a unique, encrypted Device Account Number rather than your actual debit or credit card numbers.

Your name and card number remain anonymous to cashiers and bystanders, making online and mobile payments more secure than ever before.

Here is how to get started:
• Make sure you have the latest iOS version on your iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 7, or 7 Plus.
• Open your Wallet app, swipe down and tap the plus sign.
• Enter your card by snapping a photo with your device’s iSight® camera, or add the data manually (if you already have a card in iTunes, you’ll be prompted to add it to your Wallet).
• Look for the Apple Pay logo at participating merchants to begin using Apple Pay.
