eCredit – FCU’s Online Credit Option
eCredit from Florida Credit Union is a line of credit featuring quick, convenient ways to access and use money, which gives our members added spending power when they need it most. This versatile offering can protect your checking account against financial miscalculations, provide a little extra money to cover your daily expenses until the next payday and, depending on the limit you receive, can even help with large purchases. Your checking account is directly linked to your eCredit account, that way you can easily access eCredit when you write a check or use your debit card. In addition, your eCredit account is linked to FCU’s Online Banking services, which allows members to transfer to and from their eCredit account as they see fit.
Linking Savings to Checking Accounts
Florida Credit Union is dedicated to ensuring your financial stability, which is why members are given the option to link their checking account to their free savings accounts, allowing them to pull money from their savings to cover checks and debit transactions.
Bounce-Free Checking Protection
Bouncing a check can be a stressful and embarrassing situation, but with bounce-free checking protection from Florida Credit Union, you can avoid multiple fees and the issues that come from insufficient funds. Should you accidently overdraw your account, FCU will pay for your checks** and ensure your transaction goes through.
**Continued enrollment subject to approval and subject to change. Checks are paid as long as Bounce Fee limit has not been met or exceeded. A charge per bounced check or overdrawal at an ATM and/or point-of-sale will apply. See current fee schedule for more information. Opt out options available.
