You can set up alert notifications in Online Banking. On the menu, select ‘Services‘ and click ‘Alerts’. To set up a new alert, click ‘New Alert’. There are several different alert types you can set up:

  • Account alerts – get notified when your balance goes above or below a specified amount
  • History alerts – get notified when credits or debits post to your account
  • Online transaction alerts – get notified when online activity occurs like a funds transfer
For cards, the most common alert type is to get notified when a transaction posts. This can be done by setting up a History alert. Select the transaction type (debit/credit) and transaction amount you want to be notified about. For example, if you only want to know about purchases over $100, you can specify this amount or if you want to know about every transaction, you can choose to get alerts for purchases more than $0.01.

You can securely reorder checks in Online Banking. In your account, go to the 'Services' tab and select 'Check Reorder'. Checks may also be ordered from our Member Care Center, at any of our branch locations or by calling 800.Deluxe1.

Please contact our Member Care Center 888.493.4328 or stop by a branch location. Select cards can be instantly issued at a Georgia United branch location while others may need to be issued by mail.

*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Rate may change after account is opened. The APY is accurate as of the last dividend declaration date. If your account balance is from $0.01 to $15,000.00 and qualifications are met, the Annual Percentage Yield will be 1.00%. If your account balance is $15,000.01 and above and you have met the qualifications, the Annual Percentage Yield will range from 1.00% to 0.19%. To earn 1.00% APY on up to $15,000 of the average daily account balance and to receive up to $10 per month in non-Georgia United ATM surcharge fee refunds, there is no minimum account balance requirement; however, the account must perform at least 15 Georgia United debit and/or credit card transactions that post and clear during the month, have a monthly direct deposit of $500 or more and be enrolled in E-Statements. If you do not meet the qualifications the APY will be 0.05%. Overdraft/returned item fees may apply, see Share Rates and Fees Schedule for additional fees that may apply. All Credit Union programs, rates, terms and conditions are subject to change at any time without notice.

**The availability of direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. Georgia United generally makes these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to two (2) days earlier than the scheduled payment date. For ACH deposits, dividends will begin to accrue on the effective date of the deposit. The effective date, or scheduled payment date, is the actual day Georgia United receives credit for the deposited funds.
