Expanded Withdrawal Access—Fees Waived

In order to help members access their funds during this pandemic period, JHFCU has made the following adjustments:

  • Free Holiday Club Withdrawals – JHFCU has temporarily suspended the fees for withdrawals from Holiday Clubs and has made access to transfers from Holiday Clubs available in Online Banking.
  • Free Education Savings Account Withdrawals – JHFCU has temporarily suspended the fees for withdrawals from Education Savings Accounts and has made access to transfers from Educations Savings Accounts available in Online Banking.
  • Free Early Withdrawals Or Closings of Share Certificates – JHFCU has temporarily waived the fee to withdrawal from or close a Share Certificate account before maturity.
  • No Fee from JHFCU for Foreign ATM Withdrawals – Members already have totally fee-free access to an extensive network of ATMs, but JHFCU now has also temporarily waived our fee if you use a foreign ATM not in that network.  You may still be charged by the machine owner as we have no control over that, but will not be charged a foreign ATM fee for any ATM withdrawal.
  • No Fee for Temporary ATM or Debit Card Increases – If you need to make a larger cash withdrawal at an ATM or purchase at a vendor using your Debit Card that exceeds normal policy limits, JHFCU has temporarily waived the fee to process the increase.

 


Additional Information – Beware of COVID-19 Scams

As an additional service to members, JHFCU has updated our Security Center section of our website with helpful information about scams that have emerged as unethical persons have schemed to cheat consumers.  At all times we urge you to be wary of any unknown party who contacts you and either promises to help (in exchange for money) or to scare you into purchasing something, or giving up personal information.  Please also continue to be wary of debit/credit card scams and other security concerns outlined in the Security Center as well.
