  • No monthly service fee
  • No minimum daily or monthly balance required
  • No per-check or per-transaction fee
  • Instant issue debit card
  • Stay on top of your finances with one (or more!) of our free mobile banking options

Teens aged 15-17 can open a checking account with a parent or guardian as a joint owner.  A debit card can be issued once the teen reaches his/her 16th birthday.

In compliance with the 2001 Patriot Act, we must verify your identity so please remember to bring your Social Security number along with your driver's license, passport or state ID card.  Please give us a call if you if you have any questions about acceptable identification.

Overdraft Transfer automatically shifts money from your savings account to your checking account to cover overdrafts. There is no fee involved for this convenient service.

  • Overdraft Transfer allows you to avoid the $25 insufficient funds fee charged per overdraft.
  • Overdraft Transfer from a loan account is also available. Please contact an Abilene Teachers FCU Loan Officer for more details.
  • Not sure if you signed up? Contact a Member Services representative to determine if the correct paperwork is on file.

Courtesy Pay will protect you from life's unexpected emergencies and the cost, embarrassment and inconvenience of having a check returned. Here's how it works:

  • Should an enrolled member overdraw their checking account for any reason, Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union will consider, as a discretionary courtesy and not a right or obligation, covering overdrafts up to a $600.00 maximum, which includes the insufficient funds/overdraft fee of $25 per item.
  • This program is offered to all checking account holders who are in good standing with the credit union. When your account is eligible, we'll mail you a form asking if you wish to enroll. If you're interested, simply complete the form and return it to us.

An Instant Issue VISA® Debit Card is the convenient way to pay directly from your checking account whether you're shopping around the corner or around the world.

  • We can now quickly issue your Visa Debit Card at any of our walk in lobbies. You choose your own PIN and there's no waiting for the card to arrive in the mail.
  • Your card can be used at ATM's to obtain cash.
  • The VISA Debit Card can be used anywhere VISA is accepted.

All debit cards include vigilant fraud monitoring. If a dubious transaction is made on your card, you could receive a text messages or phone call requesting your approval. All messages will clearly identify Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union and will come from the phone number 877-230-3179. You will not be asked for your account number. To protect your account, please respond appropriately.
