Debit Card Round-Up
This program allows you to use your Debit Card to make everyday purchases and have the change rounded up on the transaction to the nearest whole dollar. The difference will automatically transfer from your Checking Account to your Savings Account at the end of each business day! Saving has never been so easy! Ask a representative for more information and enroll today!
Debit Card Roundup transfers are eligible for Debit Card purchases only. Transfers will occur on the same day the transaction is posted to your Checking Account. Once enrolled, transfers will begin to post on the next business day. Purchases made on weekends or holidays will post on the next business day. If on a business day you do not have sufficient available funds in your Checking Account, or if any transaction has overdrawn your Checking Account, TFCU will not round up purchases posted on that business day and will cancel the transfer for that day. If your Debit Card purchase is subsequently cancelled or reversed, the Debit Card Roundup transfer remains in the savings account. Not available on Business Accounts.
Pay for purchases in an easy, secure and private way right from your iPhone wherever you see the Apple PayTM logo! To get started, simply add your TFCU debit card to your Apple PayTM account via your Wallet app. To use Apple PayTM, you will need an iPhone 6 or later. Ask a representative today for more information or visit www.tauntonfcu.com/applepay.

Overdraft Advance is a product offered by Taunton Federal Credit Union to provide overdraft protection on our Member’s Checking Accounts. This product provides members with the comfort and convenience of knowing a draft presented for payment will not be returned. The account remains in good standing if all charges and fees are paid current within 30 days of the overdraft. A qualified member can be enrolled for the product at no cost. This is a “pay as you use” product and no fees are charged until an overdraft occurs.
You may opt out of this product at any time by speaking with a Member Service Representative. If you elect to opt out of the Overdraft Advance Product, future overdrafts will not be covered. Items presented for payment will be returned and the applicable Non-Sufficient Funds charges will be assessed.
Overdraft Advance is a non-contractual discretionary service offered by TFCU that may cover a transaction when sufficient funds are not available up to an established limit. A $30.00 fee will be charged for the payment of each overdraft item. Overdraft Advance covers checks and other preauthorized debits including, if you decide to opt-in, ATM and Debit card transactions. All overdraft balances must be repaid within 30 days of overdrawing the account. Members who are 18 years or older and have had an account in good-standing with TFCU for at least 90 days are eligible to participate in the Overdraft Advance program. Second Chance Checking Accounts are not eligible for Overdraft Advance Program. The payment of overdrafts is discretionary and TFCU reserves the right not to pay overdrafts and to discontinue a member’s participation in the program.
