Did your OU payroll deposit date change?

Financial Tips

Automatic Merchant Payments

Do you have any automatic payments scheduled based on the date of your payroll deposit? You may need to contact each vendor (for example, the electric company) to change the date of your automatic payment. Look through your checking account statement (available in online banking) to help you in making a list of merchants and withdrawal dates.

If you do not make the date change, you may be charged for a "returned item" if the funds were not available at the time of the payment. You may also incur a late payment fee from the vendor. Ultimately, a late payment could negatively affect your credit score.

Automatic Credit Union Transfer

If you make your loan payment through payroll deduction or have automatic direct deposit into various OUCU accounts, you do not need to do anything. However, if you set up an automatic account transfer on your own, you will need to change the date of the transfer.

Please give us a call or send an email to memberservices@oucu.org if you have any questions. We're here to help!

Cell Phones for Soldiers Program

OUCU has partnered with GM and Invest in America to help collect old cell phones.

The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone -- the money is used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent to troops.

Cell phone donations are accepted at both OUCU branches. You can even donate phones that are no longer in working condition -- they will be dismantled and recycled to reclaim some materials.
